Phones In An Imagination-Starved World

In my "Why Smart Phones Aren't" series (1), I had expressed my hope that I would actually see a phone that is truly smart in my lifetime.

I challenged people to re-think what a phone should be and recommended that as a prime directive a phone should be "Respectful to its owner first."

Seems that I and Joe Liau are not the only two voices in the forest here. Bunnie Huang has weighed in with an excellent video along a similar theme.

Though the video is not about Ubuntu Phone (2), it should be. The Ubuntu Phone has begun to change the world, but we still have a ways to go. Perhaps spreading the idea that current market-leading phones are a "waste of life" will help.

Let's continue to disrupt an industry that has needed a good shake for at least a decade. Spreading this information helps.
