The humans call some of the new cell phones, "smart phones". I am wondering just how smart a phone has to be before it becomes a smart phone. Do they give recently manufactured phones an IQ test to see if they are smart enough to be sold as smart phones? Another thing, what if you bought a phone that just barely made it onto the smart phone shelf? Does that mean that your phone may act stupid at times because it isn't as smart as the other phones in the group? These are important questions to ask before buying a phone. Do you have to be a smart human to buy a smart phone because it seems silly for a stupid human to own a smart phone? These are questions that would have troubled philosphers for centuries if there had been phones in past centuries. There is a young man in China who recently sold a kidney to get a smart phone. I think it is very sad that the humans feel they need some of the technology to the point that they would sell something so important to survival. Now he is in renal failure--all for a smart phone. Personally, from what I've seen of the telephone calls my humans get, getting rid of the phone would be the smartest move they could make. Most of the phone calls are stupid and just take time away from spending that time with me which is how it should be spent--with a dog!
