“…it is not unfathomable to imagine a prospective society that finds the tic itself [compulsive mobile gadget use] to be as abhorrent and vile as today’s culture does cigarettes. In that putative future, smartphone users would be relegated to special rooms in airports, where passers by would shake their heads disapprovingly at the grey faces lit from below by their tiny, blue screens.”- Ian Bogost

Not long ago, I saw someone off in the corner at a social event – juggling a beer and a cigarette while tapping away on their iPhone. Connected.
