I do like the idea of having a phone that can just make calls and text, but also tether a laptop. I would definitely use that feature during my commute.
I could see myself buying one of these "dumb" phones this year. I want to set a better example for my kids and not be on my phone all the time.

Each has their pros & cons unfortunately with no clear winner.

Nearly all Windows computers store BitLocker encryption keys in TPMs.
Found myself re-implementing the same CDN setup over and over again for every serverless project I worked on, so I created https://github.com/smoketurner/serverless-cdn as a GitHub template repo for people to start from
We are living in an age where everything from clothing to furniture to technology is cheap and disposable.
