I Want To Listen To Vinyl Records

Lost Without My Smartphone

Last week I sent away my smartphone to Samsung. The week before, it had begun to overheat and destroy my batteries, so I sent it in for repair. I knew I had become used to having a continuous connection to the world, but I had no idea how bad it really was. This morning I ...
