I'll gladly be an honorary smartphone-less brother (I'm actually female)Luna Novem, we might be brothers -- you just described me almost to a T. I've never owned a smartphone, either, and your alternative gear is exactly what I have with the exception of the iPod model. The hard drive in the Classic couldn't withstand the bouncing when I do cardio, so I went with the solid state iPod Touch for music. Roosh's suggestion to use an old Android device for music/podcasts is interesting, but my iPod Touch also serves as a 2FA device required by my employer, so it's the better choice for me.
It's so rare to find another person who's never owned a smartphone. We are at a distinct advantage, I believe; having never become accustomed (and therefore addicted), it continues to feel natural to go without. Cheers!
