A Phone Isn't A Phone


A cellphone isn't even a phone anymore. It's an unfettered portal to instant gratification. It's a constant distraction from living in the moment. People can't enjoy simple moments anymore it seems without the snap a picture or a tweet about it. Thinks about "live-tweeting" shows like Breaking Bad or Scandal for example. Instead of watching the hottest tv show out, people are mini blogging about it in almost real time. TV used to be THE ultimate distraction. Mobile devices, as they are now called, are quite often the hub of popularity for teens. This generation's self esteem is a reflection of likes on their Instagram, Tumblr and Facebook pages. That is what makes them cool these days. I look around at restaurants, on the road while driving, walking through the mall... you name it and people are on their phone. There are distracted walking campaigns because of cellphone use. Our phones are so important to us nowadays but phone isn't a phone anymore though. Who even talks on the phone now?
