David Chalmers sees his IPhone as more than an Outboard Brain, but as part of his mind (Cyborg). "A whole lot of my cognitive activities and my brain functions have now been uploaded into my IPhone. It stores a whole lot of my beliefs, phone numbers, addresses, whatever. It acts as my memory for these things. It's always there when I need it." Chalmers even claims it holds some of his desires. "I have a list of all of my favorite dishes at the restaurant we go to all the time in Canberra. I say, OK, what are we going to order? Well, I'll pull up the iPhone - these are the dishes we like here. It's the repository of my desires, my plans."
