If you ask someone about the necessities of life they are likely to give the expected answer; food, clothing, water, air, shelter. This is maybe a few years back, now something has been added to the necessities of life; the mobile phone! Again if you ask someone you always carry when to leave your house; the answers could range from wallet, keys, smile and yes the mobile phone! These phones are ubiquitous; they are calculators, alarm clocks, a handy diary, window to the social world; they can double as you wallet and of course they let you make calls from anywhere. They are our friendly genies that can solve all problems be it getting a cab, setting up a reminder, navigate your way and what not! Really these smart phones have revolutionized our everyday lives. However is this genie becoming an addiction more than a utility?
