Define: "smart"

When thinking of a smartphone, look at these definitions of “smart” as a verb … and my own examples of how they relate to a smartphone:

verb (used without object)

  1. to be a source of sharp, local, and usually superficial pain, as a wound:
    Her Instagram app’s middle-of-the-night beep smarted.

  2. to be the cause of a sharp, stinging pain, as an irritating application, a blow, etc.:
    The crime news in the news-feed app smarted every morning that he checked it before getting out of bed.

  3. to feel a sharp, stinging pain, as in a wound:
    She smarted after seeing how successful a former roommate seemed in her Facebook posts.

  4. to suffer keenly from wounded feelings:
    He smarted under the criticism by random strangers to his tweet on his Twitter app.

  5. to feel shame or remorse or to suffer in punishment or in return for something:
    She smarted with the regret of ignoring the directions from her GPS app.

verb (used with object)

  1. to cause a sharp pain to or in:
    Her Facebook posts with her new boyfriend smarted him every time he checked the app.

Now, you tell me:

  • Does a smartphone make you smarter, or does it smart when you use it?
