Like anything, mobile technology is great when used at the right time for the right purposes. But when the value I get out of my time is decreased, rather than increased, by the presence of such a device, I’m doing myself a disservice. For example, the value that I get out of the time I spend driving is increased by my using my phone to listen to podcasts. But the value I get out of having a meal with my family is strongly decreased if anyone has their phones or iPods out.

Very true dCote! Isn’t it ironic how the technology meant to free us enslaves us instead?
