It wasn't that long ago that there was no such thing as a smart phone or an ipad. In fact in real terms it wasn't that long ago that there was desktop access to an internet that downloaded quickly. The concept of digital detox is peculiar because all any of us need to do is remember we are in control. The only reason I don't like to be without my phone is in case there is a family emergency. Yes I may miss a photo opportunity but I can live with that. I have stopped mega posting fb pictures on my wonderful life, narcissistic rubbish. I can go without twitter as the news is more important and available. It's the apps that I find most useful, transport, travel, food and maps in particular. I don't need to detox from ordering an uber. Detox is silly and a classic example of the modern times we live in
