This is where we are in a society, with so many smartphones and apps available. They are actually marketing this minimal phone device called the Light phone which can take us back 20 years.

The Light phone is a dumb phone that only texts, makes calls and sets alarms...Kind of like what the original cellphone did 12 years ago????

In this age of digital and marketing, we're getting so addicted to all the other things that are available through our phones and it's interesting that a Brooklyn (hipster) company has come up with what we started with a phone that just texts and makes calls. The funny thing though is that this item is actually being received very well and almost going viral. I find it hard to believe an item like that would be received well in a very common sense type town like Bismarck-Mandan, which is unfazed by the latest hipster trends.  What a breath of fresh air!
