This essential volume discusses smartphone ownership including the benefits and privacy risks. The viewpoints are selected from a wide range of highly respected and often hard-to-find sources and publications. Readers are exposed to many sides of a debate, which promotes issue awareness as well as critical thinking. Across four chapters, essays debate the benefits of smartphones, who really owns and uses them, whether they have privacy risks, and what the future may bring. Essay sources include Debra Littlejohn Shinder, Brian X. Chen, Jamilah King, Yukari Iwatani Kane, and The Economist.
