I wish I could afford a Smartphone…. and the monthly data charges 🙁
If most of the use of mobile devices is before 1pm–I think there is probably a lower level of production at jobs and home.
But when I see a 2 1/2 year old playing games on an Ipad I really feel behind the times. It seems to me however that imagination is being usurped while required responses take over.
