I noticed in the comments of that video that a lot of people are showing pride at either not owning a cell phone at all, or they still own their flip phone from 10 years ago.

To me, the problem doesn't have anything to do with that. I have owned a smart phone for the past 2 years. Love it and get a lot out of it, but I never have it out when I'm with company.
Of course, the problem isn't the technology. There were jokes (as well as serious concerns) about teenagers spending too much time talking on the phone back when phones had rotary dials, weighed 5 pounds and plugged into the wall.

It's not the tool that's the problem -- it's the tool who uses the tool!

EDIT: This is my 8000th post! You're all invited to celebrate my promotion to Vice Admiral.
