Many people who were not using their phone, wore it in his hands, as if they were weapons. It is as if holding a phone in your hand It is considered a duty in the cities. Take into account that we are in winter and in the morning the temperatures freeze one fingers. That is solved easily. I see an advertisement for gloves that allow one to drive a touchscreen at a bus stop.
There are also applications that encourage the sending of text messages as one walks, using a camera that shows the way ahead on the screen. People distracted with your phone has become the most hated New York, even more than the detested tourists. Always disgusted us people who are stopped on the sidewalk with a lost face, looking at maps and observing the skyscrapers, obstructing the step. Now, we ourselves are a threat. Before we walked down the street pending what happened to our around, taking care of us from robbers and pickpockets. Now people walk without paying attention to what is happening, stuck in an electronic device that costs hundreds of dollars.
A New Yorker who followed my daily count on Facebook told me that she was one of them. In fact, He says that he often walks with her husband and that they not talk, but both are outstanding for their phones. I realized that my walk towards the underground railroad or home is the only time that I can focus on myself, the woman, said that he asked not be identified for fear to ridicule with his confession. The rest of the day I am surrounded by people that captures my attention. I am the typical person who does many things at the same time. When you walk down the street, think about things related to work, in what should you say to nanny.
