Is simple tech the best tech?

Some people like to have the latest gadgets or what the cool kids call the “in thing”.

However, studies show that the older, less cool, simple tech is actually on the rise. Between 2018-2021 there has been an increase of 89% in dumb, brick, non-smart mobile phone searches.
