  1. Tried to post this video onto Farcebook and a message came up saying it was against their community standards 🙂

  2. It’s fine to have social media, just do it in moderation. Do everything in moderation

  3. Still use a flip phone and a land line, and that's just fine with me. Smart phones and social media are turning society into a bunch of zombies just going mindlessly through life. People are paying more attention to their lousy gadgets than having face-to-face human interactions, and that's a recipe for disaster, because it's making people socially inept.

  4. Tristan, the good guy everyone loves. Paid millions by tech companies just to be that guy to prove that they all deep down care about us!

  5. I got off social media completely a couple years ago, and for me, it was the best thing I could have done. Why? Because I can concentrate on living my life again. I'm not missing out on my life because I'm trying to please others.

  6. I check my "smart phone" every few months, although I check email on my lap top a half dozen times a day. It doesn't have a SIM card because, for me at least, cell phones are more trouble than they're worth. I prefer a lap top to a smart phone because a lap top allows me to keep two or more programs open at once, so as to fact check information I receive. "Smart phones" are a barrier to intelligent communication.

  7. Of course that's true every company is trying to maximum the time you spend attention on it's products. They just don't care about whether it's good for you or not.

  8. This video cannot be posted on Facebook…I am trying, it has been blocked. (We removed this post because it looks like spam to us. If you did post this and don't believe it's spam, you can let us know.)

  9. Hi-tech is using what Hollywood have started ovet 100 years ago. Attentionalism and fake sensationalism is the key componant to the survival of industies like media, technology, sports, entertament and even sciense.

  10. He's a hero. We need more like him. I invite you now to be more like Tristan and live a life of purpose—regardless of what you do.

  11. E.T. Slots. E.T. Kilns. They gamble, too. They gambled at the Cross. They gambled at 51 and they gambled at Boise. Why do you think the tribal lands all have casinos now?

  12. Closed my Fakebook account ages ago. Don't have a smartphone. don't 'do' twitter, whatsapp, whatsever. Even check my email only once a day. Man, I feel gr8.

  13. There's an app that delays apps opening by 12 seconds in order to discourage overuse. I am trying to find it. If anyone knows the name of it for andriod then please reply. Thanks.

  14. I don't have a "smartphone"….just a feature phone for emergencies. Don't let this crap rule your life.

  15. Honestly its true i lived well without a phone up till i was 18 only reason i bought it was i needed gps and a number to receive job interview calls and text, but the monthly bill, needing/wanting the latest $1000 phone and the always being brain dead playing watching videos the urge tp receive and send Notifications outweighs the good
