In this article, the reality of our smartphone epidemic is revealed. I think the examples are particularly vivid. These occurrences happen every day, and we as a society are conditioned to accepting them. When I took the time to actually examine the implications of the events, I had a different opinion though. This article really made me slow down and evaluate the implications of some of my worst cell phone habits. I can really see how some are viewed as rude by others. If I didn’t have a smartphone to constantly entertain myself, I would not only feel left out, but ignored as a result of everyone else posting on twitter and texting their friends. The article talks about killing the real moment for a virtual one. I think most people can definitely relate to killing a moment with some electronic interaction.
