Mitch Albom: Apple bites into (our) holiday humanity

We are missing something. Collectively, we already have missed lifetimes. An iPhone can't smile, hug, cry or share a memory. An iPhone can't bake, taste or pop champagne. An iPhone can't tell you the family stories — no matter how clever an editing program you have.
