No, your smartphone is not turning you into a slug - your sedentary lifestyle is what's turning you into a slug. Your smartphone did not turn you into a slug any more than cigarettes did not turn you into a smoker.

If you want to be less of a slug, buy some running shoes and set up your smartphone to play music while you run.

When are we going to stop blaming external devices and put the blame where it belongs - on us.

People don't cheat because they have a facebook account - they cheat because they are cheaters.

People are not lazy slugs because they have smart phones, or the internet, or TV, or books, or whatever - people are lazy slugs because they are lazy slugs.

Smart phones, the internet, TV, books, and whatever just make it more fun.

Kalinda: "When are we going to stop blaming external devices and put the blame where it belongs - on us." Great comment. Right to the point. Got me pondering the other "external devices" we try to blame for society's ills...
