My job requires the use of internet. Everyone's medical records are on some type of digital program now. I have to have my job to survive, buy food, pay house payment, pay car payment, insurance, gas, so probably not.

But personally, unless I find a good topic on here that interests me and keeps me entertained for a little while, I'm not on the internet the way I was a few years ago. There are days/nights when I don't even turn on my computer and I refuse to use my phone as a computer. I used to talk with a friend daily online - he's across the country from me, but we don't chat any more. Life, work, other responsibilities get in the way, so there isn't much need for me to be on the internet anymore. So, yeah, I could. But I could keep my GPS right? eek I have to have my GPS for work. And I don't want to go back to using paper maps. Trying to fold those things mad

come on now, those paper maps were fun, lol it brought people together. It was learning time lol



LOL! I'll keep my GPS, thank you very much! I had nightmares about those maps. eek

In the mountains of Northern New Mexico, a GPS can get you into a lot of trouble. You could even die. No one, and I repeat NO ONE who lives in places like that goes anywhere without a paper map or atlas in their car.

Over here, we're constantly telling idiots not to reply on GPS apps and the like, and to take maps and compasses with them if they head out into the mountains/forests. And that they should know how to use them!

lol I had to learn fast because my dad would only seem to ask me to read the map when he was lost and turned into a drill sargeant

I think it is a good skill to know though,like writing out a check or writing a signature

which a lot of youth don't know how

I and some friends left the City to do some camping in the Adirondacks and lost all signal up there, it actually had us going back south when we should have been going north

But let me clarify - do you mean

Everyone BUT me has the internet?

OR

No one - including me - has the internet?

I could survive either way but I would be at a disadvantage in business if everyone but me had access to information via the web.

Most of us that remember life BEFORE 1994 have a far better chance of surviving without the internet than most people born after 1990.

That's probably true but I think I'm the exception to the rule because I was born in 1990 but I'd be fine without the internet.

Instead of shelling out the money for a new phone (his upgrade was due in a month or two yet), he ended up using a flip phone.


Just to let everyone know - I don't have a smartphone! Sounds unbelievable, right?

I don't have a smartphone either! Never have. I had a flip phone up until about 6 months ago but I rarely used it so I let that go when the money on it ran out, now all i have is a landline.

.

Seems like most people (that I know anyway), family and friends, communicate almost exclusively through text messages so I am pretty out of the loop these days as nobody wants to call each other and actually *talk*. I'm of the generation that grew up with just landlines and so I would love for some of the technology to disappear and go back to simpler days where communication was more personal, but I know that time has past. lol

I have several family members who don't have Internet... shock, they are doing;OK. wink lol


Yeah, I could survive not having the Internet. Its a very convenient and powerful tool to have and use, but it isn't a necessity. People use to ask the same question about TV.

Several years ago the I.P.'s were pushing this notion... oh, you want be able to find or apply for a job if you don't Internet. Funny, the economy is booming where I live. Now you see interview Wed. & Mon., applications for jobs left on the counter-top or hung at the door with signs saying, "Help Wanted".

As far as the Amazon echo and all its creations. Never in my home: Spy machines with shity security. Its a matter of time before people get burned and badly... I'm on count down now. neutral
