  1. This was a really interesting episode. I did note however that Steve seemed to define life without a smart phone and the Internet as “not worth living”. I think there are a few people scattered round the world in developing countries who might disagree with him. Also, speaking for myself I use virtually none of the applications he mentioned. I use false emails and names for commercial stuff and only talk about stuff on the Internet I want people to know about. It seems ultimately that the problem is people offering up their lives on a plate.
