Dierks Bentley has decided to take a little “vacation” from his iPhone and revert back to the basics of communication. In a post on Instagram, Bentley said that while he’s amazed at how much he can do with his smartphone, he’s also astonished at how addictive the device can be. He says, “It sometimes feels like the never ending blitzkrieg of news, info, etc. is sucking any intelligent thought out of my brain…and there isn’t too much in there to begin with!”
- Bentley’s post was accompanied by a picture of the items he’ll need for his smartphone-free existence: a typewriter, a camera, a metronome, a recorder and a pen and paper notebook.
- Bentley didn’t specify if his smartphone “vacation” also meant that he was taking a break from social media.
