    I find such widespread smartphone addiction hard to comprehend. I don’t even want a smartphone or tablet. I find them too awkward to use, and inherently too insecure for things requiring username-password authentication, at least over public wi-fi. I value security over convenience, but it seems that for the vast majority it’s the other way around.

    BOING !!! You hit the bulls eye of my pet peeve! Just this week I’d gone to lunch with a friend that I hadn’t seen for awhile. She got 2 calls and ‘chatted’ with both callers for probably a combined 30 minutes while I sat & made circles with my fork in my mashed potatoes.
    I told her that ‘maybe we could visit another time when she wasn’t so busy’ She told me I hurt her feelings…I asked how she thought I felt. Now, we’ll no doubt go to lunch again soon, but what if one of us dies first, it’d be a treasured time of sharing is lost forever. Besides,..it downright RUDE!
