Gabb Wireless Creating A More In-Touch Generation

Technological advancement in phones has made nearly everything more accessible in just seconds. We no longer have to pull out paper maps for directions, carry around a camera to capture memories, go to a library for answers. Everything is at the tip of our fingers, and while it has made life exceptionally easier to navigate, it has caused a worrisome reliance. The younger generation will hardly be able to function without the device in their hand. Fortunately, Stephen Dalby created Gabb Wireless to eliminate distractions while maintaining the fundamental purpose of a cell phone.

The Gabb phone is designed for communication between kids and their parents or guardians, simultaneously preventing overuse leading to addiction and corruption of the innocent. There are no unnecessary apps on the Gabb phone that could potentially harm a child’s safety or reputation through a fallacious post. The 12 essential features on the Gabb phone include: messaging/calling, contact list, camera/video, voice recorder, gallery, FM radio, file manager, calendar, clock, and calculator. The minimalism helps with moderate phone use, keeping kids focused on living life to the fullest.

Gabb Wireless is helping kids fill the phone distractions with healthier lifestyles like implementing extracurricular activities into a daily schedule. This company is creating a better, more in-touch generation. Gabb Wireless’s brand ambassador Kelana Humphrey finds Gabb to be a valuable asset because it provides her with more time to focus on motocross.

“I like Gabb because I’m not even tempted to waste time on my phone,” Humphrey, the nationally-ranked 12-year-old motocross racer, said.

Apps like TikTok and Instagram expose children to society standards or inappropriate content, poorly rewiring their brains earlier than most parents would like. The saying ‘oh to be young again’ seems more estranged than ever since social media is expediting adulthood. Do kids even have lemonade stands or play ghosts in the graveyard anymore?

“Kids are happier when they are out playing with friends, developing talents, and connecting with humans, not sitting alone in a locked room swiping a screen,” Dalby said.

Personally, I think the world should follow in Gabb Wireless’s footsteps because we are losing sight of what is really important. Time is of the essence, and watching thousands of unrelated videos on an app is not a beneficial way to spend life.
