I finally gave up my old LG cell phone when it no longer kept a charge in the battery. It worked just fine as long as I was “plugged in” to the charger, but that kind of defeated the purpose of having a “mobile” phone. I had that phone for many years, resisting the urge to upgrade to a smart phone.
A woman next to me at a community meeting commented to the group of local residents assembled there that “no one reads newspapers anymore.” I think she was being funny, while trying to needle me a bit since we knew each other, but it could very well be she also believed it since there are a lot of experts asserting the death of newspapers.
