Recently I took my family to dinner at our favorite Thai restaurant.
While we were waiting to be served, my wife was busy checking fabric samples on her mobile (she is a home stager).
My older son was engaged with some app on his new iPhone.
My younger son was busy listening to music on his iPod.
I, not possessing any of these devices, was left with no one to talk with, twiddling my thumbs — alone for all practical purposes, despite the 3 other people at my table.
What an odd digital world we live in.
