Company offers $1K to use flip phone for a week

"Our glorious candidate would possibly maybe be a self-proclaimed smartphone fiend who's continuously up to this level on the most modern tech knowledge".

"The more you use a Wi-Fi-enabled mobile device in your daily life, the better", the company said in a press release.

All you have to do is explain, in 100 to 200 words, why you're the ideal person for the social experiment. The person selected will be informed no later than July 8th and will be sent guidelines on how they are expected to record the experience.
