We feel naked without our mobile device. This isn’t unusual. We also feel naked without our wallet or our purse, or at the most fundamental level, our clothes!
Once something becomes so customary and ingrained into our daily lives, we can’t leave home without it. The phone will become even more indispensable as it converges our wallets, passports, and our house and car keys. The fewer things we have to carry the more worried we have to be when we lose those items.
We’re creatures of habit. We need our phones to participate in modern day society, or we end up out of touch, which of course, might not be such a bad thing.
