Smartphones are kind of a necessary evil these days. Sure, you can read your email and get on the internet whenever you want, but owning a smartphone can feel a lot like this scene from Futurama: Up until now, the misfortunes of smartphones have been more of an annoyance than a major problem, and the more tech-savvy of us have found loopholes.
