Depends what is meant by "technology". Smartphone though? Most definitely, because I don't even have one.

I've survived without my laptop for a few days, and having broke my blackberry I managed to live without it but I really want an iPhone 4S. So yeh, I can only survive a short while without technology, let alone internet connection :D

Maybe I should have picked "a few days" instead of "yes". :/

Anyway, I don't have a smartphone, and I've gone long amounts of time without comparable technology. (computers, phones, games, etc.)

Damn, I voted for the wrong thing :pi: I was supposed to vote 'Yes'. Realistically, I'd say a few weeks for technology (I don't have a smartphone and don't need one). Only because I'd miss my friends on here/have lots of coursework to do. I'm a bit addicted to the internet and my ps3 ._.

Sadly, my life wouldn't be much use to me without technology. Working in the 3D/Games & Film industries as an artist without a computer or any of the relevant technology there wouldn't be any point in finishing my degree without technology. So yeah I might as well die when if the 2012/apocalypse is upon us. :/ lol
Also I don't function too well without games. :(

My spelling isn't great all the time I blame my Dyslexia sometimes for that. :/

I can understand that. But don't you ever wish you could just ditch it all for a few days (if not longer) and just take in nature and enjoy the world as it was before all these gadgets that we have now?

Don't feel bad, I'm not any better... I blame TRF's lack of a spell checker. :mad:

I'll admit sometimes I feel like I want to ditch technology for a few days and go travelling around the world since I like adventure and travelling. That would be my way to enjoy the world just to travel. :)

Don't feel bad, I'm not any better... I blame TRF's lack of a spell checker. :mad:
I blame that too, but if you use chrome there is a spell checker included. :D
That's what I use. :)

I don't exactly have great internet service since I live in a rural area, which means that sometimes the internet doesn't work. At first I'm a little lost as to what to do (and even worse when we sometimes have power outages in harsh winters, although this winter has been extremely mild so that hasn't happened once yet :p), but I think it's good for us to be free of technology every now and then. I wouldn't want it forever, but it makes us realize just how much stuff we take for granted these days.

I don't actually a phone myself... so that part doesn't really apply to me, but the technology side sure does. ;)

Easily... Went to Egypt often enough and we barely had internet there, and using your mobile would cost a fortune, so I would leave that at home... Managed to do up three weeks without before I had to dive into the Internet Cafe... E3 was that week, and I would see the Nintendo pressconference live darned! :p

03-02-12, 01:21
If I have enough books, I probably can, but I really don't want to. Having a smartphone has changed my life in tiny ways, and I've gotten used to having all information I want (even if it is just TRF or Twitter) available whenever I feel like it. That isn't an essential part of my life, but I miss it when I don't have it.

I could easily survive without my mobile, which is a blackberry, the only time I have used it at all today in fact was this morning for the alarm function. I haven't called, texted or IMd anyone. To be honest, with the increase of Wifi in public spaces and 3G powered deviced like Ipads I'm more contactable, and often more more quickly so, via facebook than using my mobile.

I could probably go a few days. I wouldn't like it, but I'd be able to do it.

I know it would be beneficial. Sometimes, breaks are needed. We use too much technology, and in doing so, we've distanced ourselves from our own natural instincts, abilities and insight into who we truly are.

If someone from 200 years ago were transported into today's day and age, they would not be able to cope with the amount of technology that we have. We've evolved to become more multi-tasked to be able to handle it.

i checked "a few days" because I didn't see an option for anything longer than that. I've had cell phones but i'm not tied to them, i have a computer and internet, but i can also live with out them for a while. Longest I went with out access to any kind of electronic technology (besides a GPS) was 41 days.

TRexbait
03-02-12, 03:29
Yeah, I can. (I've gone backpacking for several days and on trips where I can't use technology. I do just fine, really get to catch up on my reading :D).

Right now, the most I could go is for a few days. I didn't check email yesterday and what do you know, I got accepted to a college.

All in all, yeah, for a while.

03-02-12, 03:36
I don't own a smartphone or a cellphone of any kind, so it's a 'Yes' for that. Going without the internet would be difficult but I went without it for about 8 months not too long ago. I just got used to it.

But having no type of technology at all would be painful after a few hours. :p

Yes for me actually I can live a day with out technology, nothing would be changed you know, but at over all no, I'll doing tasks in my computer, and probably cell phone or other technology devices.

Take note to now on modern life they are necessary to use and you probably use them little or much on your daily life, like computers, cell phones, and some personal electronic devices, so when you need them, use them, simple.

So I don't choose any option (;

anything in the PC circle/ internet. I said smartphones since those are geting to be more the it tech, and tablets! :)

this was what I wanted to post in the OP.

We are all in dependency with the internet, if it could it would be hooked interventions. We got smartphones that will take the place of credit cards, PCs, books. We all know texting and driving is dangerous, we also know texting and walking is dangerous, since u may not pay attention and get hit by a car walking threw a red light.
Did u also know all the texting can lead to spinal hunching? Yes you hunch over while you text. You may say it' s not much, but in time it gets worse. Ask any doctor.
But besides this. many kids start to spend more time inside, playing on their x-box, talking online....etc. I admit I'm a hermit too :p. But due to this a lot of people develop a vitamin D deficiency.


Vitamin D Deficiency

If you shun the sun, suffer from milk allergies, or adhere to a strict vegetarian diet, you may be at risk for vitamin D deficiency. Known as the sunshine vitamin, vitamin D is produced by the body in response to sunlight. It is also occurs naturally in a few foods -- including fish, fish liver oils, and egg yolks -- and in fortified dairy and grain products.

Vitamin D is essential for strong bones because it helps the body use calcium from the diet. Traditionally, vitamin D deficiency has been associated with rickets, a disease in which the bone tissue doesn't properly mineralize, leading to soft bones and skeletal deformities. But increasingly, research is revealing the importance of vitamin D in protecting against a host of health problems.

Surprising outcome to the poll I must admit! here I thought would be quite the opposite considering so many tech members. Maybe it's the older generation or less financial part that is the one that can go more without?

^Not really. I have iphone, internet, etc.

Technologies are merely tools. Without them, it's back to basic and we will learn to adapt. In addition, it's good for the mind and soul too getting away from techs/gadgets for a while. It's all in the mindset.

I still have my 1990's mobile flip phone, ala ....Captain Kirk/star trek style.

When I get a call, it has the star trek sound that goes 'breeepkaaaaa' like someone stepping on a cricket, Is that how its pronounced :vlol:

And when everyone looks round to see where this famous noise is coming from, I then dramatically flip my phone open and take on the Captain Kirk stance :D

Other than phoning in and out, it has no other real capabilities.

Though it does have a basic texting system relying on the old ABC, DEF buttons, where you have to press a combination of butons just to get a C, and can take up to ten minutes just to write 'will be home soon' :(

Hence, I do not us texting much.

Do you know that in the USA, on average thirty people a year are killed directly by being too engrossed on texting that they walk straight onto the road and get hit by a car, bus or lorry.

Also quite a number of distracted people, while texting, also do silly things like walking straight into rivers, fall into a shopping mall waterfall, or just generally fall of the edge of a high ledge. At least they survive to tell about it :D

sony ericsson w300i. this is the one I currently have ; got him since 2007 and I hope he will have a long life ; it would be hard for me to part with it... :D

I can't phone with it any more. Well I can call ; but people don't hear me while I can hear them ; but with headphones that problem is fixed :D

I did say I can live without technology ; that would mean; if it's not available ; I'm okay with it ; there has been plenty of times that I did not have a computer or phone in my vicinity ; but if it is around; well... it would be very very hard for me to not use it.

03-02-12, 13:07
Can I go without my phone? Effortlessly. I've also got a steam-powered thing, more artifact than phone. The texting-setup is so poor there's always a danger that the bloody device is gonna get atomised in frustration long before I've finished trying to 'type' the message. Watching my lad use his new-fangled thing makes my eyes go funny, and he simply doesn't care about the 'spy' software on it, which is happily logging every single thing he does.

Personally I'd be happiest off-grid entirely, high up in the South American spine, little technology except maybe an internet cafe a horse ride away, just so's I could d/l the latest custom level onto my otherwise very stand-alone laptop, and to check on here for help getting through the games. If only, eh?

I am not a sadist, but I think that I could manage a few days with no technology. I would still use kitchen appliances and an alarm clock, though.

I don't even have a regular phone, let alone a smartphone, lol. :p So yes. And depending on what is meant by "technology", I'm also going to say yes. As boring as it is, I've gone days and weeks without the internet or anything else.
On a side note, I haven't played a video game in over 3 months and it is torture. T_T

I don't have a phone at all and I don't want to get a smartphone because I know I'll be constantly using it...:pi: But I have gone away for many weeks without access to internet and TV, and it's during those times that you realise that reading a book is the best form of entertainment. ;) But then the question is a little ambiguous as technology doesn't have to be electric...

EDIT: Checked 'explanation' post...if we're talking about the PC/internet circle then I can go without it as long as I need to. :)

I know what you mean. When it's there, you just sort of automatically use it, but if you don't have access, it's like technology, what technology? That's the beauty of mah Kindle though as it's nice and small so can fit in a coat pocket :cln:

Yeah! Exactly that xD I don't need technology really, apart from when I need it for research, and I don't really use my phone all too often either. Its my friends that tend to tie me to those xD I quite like escaping technology. And aww :p Kindles seem awesome <3

I'd be pretty miserable without my Blackberry, laptop, and Kindle, but I'd survive. I guess...

I can probably stay away from my technology forever, but I can't guarantee I can stay away and still be happy.

What would you guys do if there was a solar flare that destroyed the electrical grid? Wiped out satellites? we live in fragile times my firneds! Even a local black out shows how dependant we are!

I think that's the point in time they'll start to announce the surpressed "free-energy" they have had and known about for years. lol

Well then you're taking the term 'technology' onto the level of electricity as a whole. True, an oven or microwave is technology too, but they're soo much more important than technology that we use for entertainment, which this thread/poll appears to be geared toward (being that it focuses on smartphones, which don't rely on electricity until you need to charge them up). But yes, it does show how dependent on electricity we are :p. But apparently there are solar flares all the time, so the chances of one shorting the entire electricity grid or wiping out satellites is quite low. Perhaps :pi:. My family went without electricity for a week a few years back thanks to major storms in France shorting the power out. Fortunately we had a gas cooker on hand to heat water and cook with, but the heating was out, so we relied on one gas heater. Let's just say, it was good to have a shower after that week.

I still think it's about ruddy time we found different ways to harness power, I think the shortage of coal is far more of a risk to our supplies than a solar flare. (I could be majorly wrong on this though, my knowledge on these things is lacking :o).

I don't have one and I don't want one, I find them tedious and to be just a "trendy" thing to have.

I think it's safe to say that some would have a much more difficult time dealing with it than others.

If I have a good book or a sketchpad or something then I could go a good while. But I need music.

I could go a few days without technology.
If I'm surounded with other people of course...
