4 Devices Being Made Obsolete by Smartphones

Quick confession: we always get a kick out of listening to Maroon 5’s “Payphone” song just because the lyrics are so anachronistic. Maybe we’re just not payphone people, what with our heavy reliance on our mobile phones, tablets, and other similar devices. If it were us, you can be sure we wouldn’t be spending all of our change at a public telephone booth just so we can call home and appeal to our would-be ex-girlfriend to reconsider. No siree! If we have to reach her, it’s going to be through voice calls, texts, e-mails, Facebook messages or, if we’re really desperate, tweets. Good thing we own a smartphone that can perform all that or we would be singing along with Adam Levine, filled with anguish, and trying to hit those ridiculously high notes.
