This study examines the contemporary smartphone as a cultural artefact. Through autoethnography, ethnographic interview, and theoretical discourse, this study examines a range of perspectives toward the smartphone and the larger, ongoing computing revolution which began in the 20th century. This study is exploratory, and provides any number of positions from which further research can be developed on the evolution of social life in and around computers in contemporary Western societies.
