Being connected

Just how heavily do you rely upon your smartphone to stay connected to the outside world?

Since the advent of the smartphone, it has become increasingly easy to stay online even when out and about.  The ability to be constantly connected is great in many ways but it also raises a number of questions.  Does this age of internet connectivity actually prevent us from communicating in more ‘old-fashioned’ ways, such as face to face conversations and letter writing?  Does this pose problems for today’s children, who have been brought up around technology? Would we feel lost or bereft without our link to the online world?

With that in mind, would you be able to spend a day without your smartphone?  What about a week…or even a month?
