Mormons might have a better chance to survive the odds with smart phones, since they have the gospel...the anti-Ego, the anti-pride, the anit-disturbance, the anti-love.

What it does with being connected to the outside world is : It makes you look inside of your head and inside of your demanding personality, but shutting off the outside world.
Car crash, ignorance toward people and kids, time consuming withdrawel from your work place are the results.

A person that is walking toward me being locked up to his ear and phone, is not being present in reality in that environment, where I am seeing this person.
The phone connected person has lost identity, "it" has become a tool for those who talk or mail him.

Sending in messages at late night, your mind is still searching for answers while you are at sleep, because our mind is not mortal, it will travel always and cannot stop a route selected before going to sleep.

That is why studies have proven, using E-connections during driving is like drunk driving.
And being drunk is not Mormon- like :)

Correction to the above post :

Hope it does not sound like a drunk driver... it was supposed to be anti-hate not anti-love, realy this may serve as evidence, that tipping in messages does take some focus away !

Smart phones are only as smart as the person using them. What is needed are "common sense" phones.

So it is not really smart phones that are the problem, it is being expected to be on call at all hours of the day and night that is the problem.

Its like late night broadcast of the Olympics, record or DVR it, and go to bed! Obviously we cannot access all the info that is out there and still be healthy and active in meeting the demands of our own life. Here's that oft-maligned word again: discriminate as to which info is really of value and worth your time. It can be a good thing.
