    I literally spit out my water when I got a ad for ice breakers on instagram which my instagram has NOTHING to do to ice breakers. I brought a pack of ice breakers earlier that day as I had a school trip to Philadelphia and I get sick on buses. Even though it was a coach bus, I would still get sick. But the thing is, I wasn’t allowed to bring a phone to the trip. So, I didn’t bring my phone at all. Help me.

    At the end of the day, if you need to use whatever you need to use why would you wast your time to read the terms of service? It’s not like you won’t hit agree at the end. Even then now days it doesn’t matter what you use... if you have a phone even that’s not connected with service, you’ve technically already agreed to any and all privacy policies around the world

    I do my part, my phone is extremely barebone, only have enough to perform it's job on a smartphone basis without stuff like Google Now. Smart TVs are off the plug when not in use and things that don't require internet connection to work stays offline, like my printer which came with the message on the box: "HP does not guarantee the reusability of cartridges (this is understandable, they make money selling cartridges, not printers) and the cartridge models that work today may not work in the future". That actually came labeled in the box, which means they can simply roll an internet update to the printer and make it (partially) unusable so I need to invest more money on expensive cartridges or even buy a brand new printer.
