Smart Phone

As someone who does not have a Smart Phone, and has no notion of getting one, I found this article interesting.

So the content on your mobile phone is more interesting than me

It really saddens me to see mothers collect their child from school at the end of the day, walk out with the child, holding its hand and speaking to someone else on a phone at the same time

Re: Smart Phone

Agreed I.A. and then the children are put in front of similar devices to look at on their own, in stead of the adult engaging with them or reading together. We wonder why some children don't read books or communicate any more. A worrying trend. Our daughter in law in a primary school teacher and some of her class cannot cope with eating/toileting/communicating. Just another child abuse trend, in my opinion. Sad and very worrying.

Re: Smart Phone

It's not just mothers, I have lost count of the number of people we have seen this summer alone , who go to some really nice places to eat , some with stunning views and gobble down their food so they can get onto their phones
I have seen a table of 2 parents and 3 youngsters who were all deeply immersed in either tablets or iphones , all not even looking up from the table, or talking to one another

Re: Smart Phone

To be honest if it was not for needing the l/line for B/Band I would get rid of my home phone . The contract deals they offer now on mobiles are making home lines extinct.

Re: Smart Phone



I've never seen anyone actually talking to another person on the Singapore subway - I wonder how many missed their stop off station

Re: Smart Phone

I often leave my phone in the car, and it can be up to a week before I miss it. I doo use the laptop a lot at home, but when we are out who cares about internet? No FB account, twitter is for the birds and I don't care whats up.

Re: Smart Phone

I can’t understand how people can be permanently on their mobiles.

When I use my phone it is usually to make/confirm an appointment or it’s my wife asking what I want for supper – 30 seconds max!

What am I missing?

Sure, all the time.

But I mostly use my Google Translate in the supermarket when I can't find something and don't know the Russian word for it.
