    11 Things We Did Before Smartphones Came Along And Ruined Everything

    Kids who have grown up using smartphones won’t ever understand the freedom children enjoyed before these devices invaded our lives. Those of us who grew up without cellphones were free from the need to gain access into a virtual world and the complications it brings. We were free to enjoy our lives without comparing it with those who paraded theirs on social media.

    Here are 11 things we did before smartphones came along:



    1. We read newspapers



    Nowadays, our only source of news is the social media, be it Facebook or Twitter. Reading newspapers was a ritual, which gradually died out with the growing penetration of smartphones. The paper was our bible and revisiting it every morning kept our eyes from watering and our English unabbreviated.

    2. We listened to music on music devices



    Tapes and CDs were the best. We could record over old playlists and not worry about running out of space. We recorded from the radio without any fear of piracy. Browsing for shiny vinyls and compilations in music stores and striking up friendships with fellow music lovers was also an experience. Also, did you know cassette tapes come equipped with a label in Braille for he visually challenged and could start exactly where it stopped without any fear of accidentally resetting the playlist?
