Life without technology

I've just returned from a week away on holiday, where my iPhone reverted to its most basic functionality - voice and SMS, and non-internet connected Applications.

Things I didn't miss - hundreds of emails a day.

Things I did miss - sports updates, internet access, real-time mapping, Facebook, Twitter, Linked-in, weather updates, google searches, the world at my fingertips.

Life, and technology, has moved on so far in ten years. It was quite odd to be unconnected to the rest of the World - a properly "switched off" week away.

Sad, or a fact of life in the Brave New World we live in?
