Robbie Williams made a shock announcement recently which if we are honest, we are still struggling to comprehend. It would appear that the hit-maker doesn’t own a mobile phone and hasn’t done since 2006.
That means that when he last had a device he was probably playing snake and hoping he didn’t exceed the text limit in his phone. His reasons are simple in that he “just doesn’t like them”. Admittedly, as an international figure, he has a small army of people to cater to his needs so possibly won’t ever find himself stuck outside hunting for an Uber, looking for a Tinder date or trying to find the nearest Pizza Express.
All his social media accounts are handled by his team – he is famously banned from having the passwords as it he doesn’t trust himself to post!
Is this a growing trend? Well, not really. There are a few more cases of those who wish to live their life without the joy of a smartphone. However, they also tend to live a life that doesn’t quite reflect the average person – specifically Elton John and Kanye West who also live without smartphones. We now see our phones as a necessary extension of every facet of our lives. They are often the first thing we see in the morning and last thing we see at night, so unless becoming a world-famous singer then the chances are you’ll be with yours for a while.
So what is new on the market at the moment? Well with Black Friday and Cyber Monday in our midsts there are some amazing deals around. However, that doesn’t mean you should get blinded by something shiny and new that will end up eating into your savings.
