Next time you're anywhere outside, pause for a few seconds to count the people you see absorbed by their smart phones. Oh well, you might say, isn't this a fact of life!

Older readers may be better equipped for these technologies but the current issue of one of my professional journals is devoted to the subject of phone and internet addiction across many generations.
I encourage you to read this very eye-opening Atlantic article for yourself.
