Hello Everyone! You might be checking this post on your smartphone. Now, with a smartphone all the information is at your fingertips, whatever information it could be. Some people use it as their daily planner. Others would have their nose stuck in it every spare minute checking new “likes” on social websites. In either case, forgetting it at home for a day is a disaster! Or is not it? Can you still dispense with it? What is a smartphone – an addiction in disguise or the biggest help you’ve ever had? Come and join our discussion on Saturday, November 29 at 1 p.m. in AMC Debates Club.
