RASHIDA JONES HAS GIVEN UP SMARTPHONESDecember 29, 2017
Rashida Jones is all about keeping it old school.
The actress/writer has had it with the pressures of social media/technology and instead returned to a simpler time when your phone just made calls.
Millennials may want to sit down for this, because Jones says she’s given up her smartphone. Bye bye iPhone!
“I just ordered a phone which is called a dumbphone which is the opposite of a smartphone and it just makes phone calls,” she told Vulture. “I’ve gone from being slightly pondering and having a bit of a filter between me and technology to just feeling like I can’t anymore.”
The catalyst that brought this on was writing the “Nosedive” episode of Netflix’s Black Mirror, which takes place in the not-too distant future where everyone is given a numerical rating based on how they socially interact with others. This ranking affects your status in society and is visible to everyone. It’s Yelp for humans!
