I’m pretty addicted to my smart phone…granted I switch from the same 4 apps repeatedly but really don’t think I could live without it. Not only is it sort of a requirement of my job to be on social media, I also e-mail, watch Netflix, and shamelessly scroll through memes for hours. So when I hear about this contest, I almost laughed out loud.
Vitamin Water, a subsidiary of Coca Cola, has recently announced that they will give someone $100,000 if they can go 365 days without using a smart phone. Don’t worry, laptops and desktop computers are okay, but no smartphones or tablets allowed, even if it doesn’t belong to you. To enter the contest, all you have to do is share an Instagram or Twitter post saying what you would do with all of the free time you would have by not being on a smartphone.
Unfortunately, this contest is only open to U.S. residents, know anyone south of the border that could take this on? The winner will be selected before January 22nd and will be given a 1996 era cell phone that can be used to communication during the the contest time period.
So, could you go a year without your smartphone?
