Wow! I'm a tech guy and watch and read s lot of tech news and videos. A current topic for everyone is how we're all Obsessed with our phones. I say, crap....that is bullshit!
I say that because, before phones it was watches either on your wrist or pocket. Most people are checking the time or looking for notifications of one type or another.
Is it an epidemic, not. No, it is not, most people use their phone to keep connected with others. Some need a little help to move more which can be done while being on your Mobile device.
I would venture to say, that people today communicate more that at any time in history.
It is a good thing....right Martha
