When I finished cutting and pasting Envelopes together to finally wrap meInside, I was hoping. In addition to being an average phone user, I've reviewed and reported on phones for years. Spending time with the phone and getting paid for it, then coming back and doing the opposite, would be new to me, and I enjoyed playing it.
From Electronic lock box for minimalist phones, the length of time people go – or rather the lengths that companies hope people go – to detox from their phones has always intrigued me. On the one hand, these intentions come from a good place; We can all stand to spend less time with our phones. But the marketing behind these solutions often carries a privilege. After all, the customers they want to attract people who are "overwhelmed" by their phones are more likely to make space for it; and they have the means to buy that fancy lock box or an extra phone whose point of sale is that it's nothing.
