As reliant as we are on all of our digital technology, we don't need it in every day life. Yeah it would fucking suck to have to go to the library instead of googling, and you have to check the newspaper for stuff like showtimes... but it wouldnt cripple society. Electricity is definitely a need for various reasons, but likewise, most of our modern world could be analog and we wouldn't miss much but our memes.

GPT kind of falls into the same category as smartphones, imo.

Nice to have, but if they all broke tomorrow our lifestyle quality wouldn't change much.
