Next time you go to a movie, watch for recent sociological phenomenon. After most people abide by the rules and shut down their cell phones as the preview begin, watch what happens when the movie ends. Instant hyperactivity, as everyone quickly turns on their phone, apparently checking to see if President Obama needed them or the house ran out of milk during that interminable 90-minute no-cell window.
Remember the old days, like three years ago, when you could actually talk to your significant other or anyone else walking out of the theatre about what you had just seen? How about lunch, when you could actually converse with your guest for 60-minutes without the incessant interruptions by those vital text messages or "crack"-berry interruptions?
