I'm hoping that the next generation will rebel by rejecting their parents' generation's obsession with the so-called smartphones. There are far too many people walking, driving and just plain standing in the way while they selfishly fiddle with their devices. There are also physical issues. I used to work with a guy who was always complaint about his sore neck while he sat hunched over his phone. Duh! According to recent research: “The hours you spend on your smartphone could be putting up to 60 lbs. of pressure on your spine, a new U.S. study says. …..People spend an average of two to four hours a day with their heads tilted over reading and texting on their smart phones and devices. Cumulatively this is 700 to 1400 hours a year of excess stresses seen about the cervical spine.” —For the love of god put that phone away!
