Phoned It In

Phone
A device that was originally created for contacting someone over long distances without much effort.

Today, there are many variations of the phone but most of them do every stupid thing that you don't need it to do. Because of this, the corporations jack the price up to inhumane levels.

It's still possible to get a normal phone which does what it was originally intended to do but if you have one your friends will make fun of you.
