Also, what most users don't know is every movement they make is being tracked and recorded, amongst, every single other operation they perform on their phones, compliments of Apple straight to Big Brother databases.
Sure they may be worth $70 billion more, but look at what they are doing to people. Turning people into senseless drones, completely desensitized of anything resembling a human.
Lol, and people can't do that with any other phone, right ?
Lets be honest, people in big cities many times don't know each other, and are naturally shy and protective of themselves, so if the perfect excuse is there, they will grab it in order to not have to be looking at strange people, with the benefit that if the other people do the same, they are all spared of some awkward moments when they are feeling observed by strangers.
Yes, it would be very nice if people would just get along in a big city like if it was a small village where many people know each other and say "Good morning!" or "Hi, how are you doing ?" every time they come cross each other, but we all know that is most likely impossible and truth be told, undesirable really, that only happens in the movies, in real life people have to look out for themselves, saying "good morning" to a complete stranger in order to begin socializing can actually be dangerous because you don't know the person from anywhere, he / she could be dangerous.
And all I'm describing here is not sad, it's just human nature, you have to look out for yourself. Being in a train / subway station looking at your cell phone can be productive and saves you from potential hassles derived from contact with strangers.
And the main point is, people already behaved like this before cell phones, even before listening to an MP3 player / CD player / Walkman or to the radio. They either read the newspaper, looked at an ad on the wall, looked at their watch, adjusted their clothes, slept a little bit, etc. People just don't go out engaging just because it's apparently the "happy" thing to do in the movies.Edited by tpi2007 - 11/29/12 at 9:52pm
