It definitely still is necessary to be book smart in todays world. I got a 36 on my ACT and now Colleges are literally giving me money. Smart phones (iPhone from my perspective) only allow us to be more efficient in certain areas of our daily lives.

You can access anything, anywhere. Everything ranging from advanced quantum physics to how to bake a cake can all be found by the tap of a finger on a screen. It is instant, quick, and effective. That being said, do you think technology- specifically smart phones are making us dumber?
How does this make us dumber exactly?

I think the real argument you're going for is whether or not modern technology has made people lazier and less self-reliant, and in that case, the answer is yes, it definitely has.

But as for making us dumber I don't really think so, cell phones (and most technology today for that matter) just make information more accessible.
However some of us are pathetically attached to technology, but at the same time I can't blame them. It's hard to live without it.
^ that was a tiny bit unrelated

And even if it were somehow possible to make you a master of quantum physics by tapping your finger, that's not bad at all.

It may make googling something 10 seconds quicker, but I'd say they make us just as dumb about computers. Which is not at all.

Although I suppose that's just helpful, so no, it's alright.
