Cell Phone or Computer?

I was thinking of all of the new technology we have now:  cell phones and smart phones, computers, i pads and i pods, Kindles, video cameras, GPSs, and other devices.  I was thinking of two basic ones that I use every day, my computer and my cell phone.  If I could only own one of these two, which would I choose?

There are some good points on both sides.  The computer is where I stay connected to people I don't really know like my blogging friends.  It lets write much easier than either a typewriter or pen and ink.  I can show my friends pictures quickly that would take much longer without the computer.  I can be connected to networks that keep me in touch with old friends.  I don't use it in my work, but nearly everyone uses it to communicate through emails.

My cell phone is just a snap and close variety, but it is a new one and has a few features my old one didn't have.  Ever since I got a cell phone, I have used it to take with me when I drive.  It's there if I need it.  I can call and ask someone at home what brand of something to get when the original brand is out.  It is just so convenient.  I can't imagine living without it.  I can't believe that I ever traveled without a phone.

 A couple of rules to my little game. You can only own one device, but you can use a computer at the library or elsewhere and you can have a land phone.  So maybe you can guess which one I'd choose.  The cell phone for sure.  I'm sure that I'm in a minority.  I used to go to the library to do my blogs when my huge big old computer died and I did just fine and I could do it again.  But what could replace my handy cell phone?  I'm not even a grocery aisle talker.  I just use it for everyday important stuff.

How about you?  Which would you choose?  It just occurred to me that the new smart phones probably do everything.  But would you still be willing to give up your personal computer?   


  1. Oooh...that's tough. I do like my smartphone, but I only like it for "emergency" use. I would give it up because I still prefer my laptop.

  2. My smartphone does do everything but hard on the eyes when it comes to the internet. I have an online business so I have to have my computer. I don't think I can choose :)

  3. Interesting question! My first thought is to keep the phone, but I sure would miss my laptop. :)

  4. I must have my computer. I only use the cell phone for long distance, and can use the chat feature of my computer if I need a quick response. Good question!

  5. Please let me know if you're looking for a writer for your blog. You have some really good posts and I think I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I'd
    really like to write some material for your blog in exchange
    for a link back to mine. Please send me an
    e-mail if interested. Regards!

  6. Hello! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog.
    Is it very difficult to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I'm thinking about making my own but
    I'm not sure where to start. Do you have any tips or suggestions? Thanks
