A third of couples mobile 'screen snubbed' by their partner
A third of people in a relationship say they have suffered "screen snubbing" from their partners being distracted by their mobile phone use, according to a survey.

And the problem, a bigger issue for millennials than older people, could be causing marriage and relationship breakdown, according to divorce lawyers.

More than a third of people (36 per cent) in a relationship surveyed said they or their partners had been distracted due to their mobile phone usage, rising to 57 per cent for millennials aged between 25 and 34. ...

Great points, Neil. I think you are dead on that people and relationships are now considered part of planned obsolescence, not just phones and other hand held devices.

What I dislike about smart phones and PCs is logistics: The "Upgrade Treadmill." After several years, one's device becomes obsolete and harder to maintain because hardware and software constantly change and they can't afford to keep regression testing apps against older systems. We found, for example, that some modern devices work only with smart phones newer than we own.

Result: hundreds of dollars for a new device of only marginally better utility. This is Planned Obsolescence with a vengeance. Same goes for increasingly computerized automobiles which become unusable at a much "younger" age once a critical part fails and costs more than the car is worth to replace.

Plus, all this compulsive computerization has resulted in a world where a crook in another hemisphere can mess up your life without warning.

Stewardship, anyone? All this ecological blather about Sustainability is risible in our culture which throws away people and things at an astonishing rate.

At the end of the day people need to realize that the phone itself is not a problem. 90+ percent of this issue is a result of social media addiction.
Divorces up exponentially, porn addiction up exponentially—all related to social media. Screen Snubbing (One researcher called it Phubbing) is just a symptom.

I remember my son calling me because he was at the Knoxville Zoo and had locked his keys in his vehicle. I had him use his smartphone to send his location to mine. I had never been to the Knoxville Zoo and they had a pretty big parking lot. However my phone got me to where he was sitting. Could it have been done without a smartphone, sure but it would have been much harder

Paying with a smartphone is very secure because your credit card data is never part of the transaction between phone and pin pad just a tokenized number is used and with biometrics you don’t have to enter a pin.

Don’t blame the smartphone for the actions of the user. They are s nice modern convenience for those who choose to use them

Maybe the Amish have the right answer in not using any of this technology. The problem today is that you cannot do anything without using a smartphone. Even now, at CVS, you cannot get their coupons without a phone. This will continue to be true for all stores, and then, like in China, you won't be able to pay without a phone. I saw an article online about how your wallet will be obsolete--all your IDs and credit cards will be on your phone.
Anyone who does not have one will be labeled worse than what a mentally retarded person used to be called.
And I think this relates to the story about small churches dying out--the idea of sitting in a large group, all facing forward, not talking to each other, while one guy talks and explains things, is completely foreign to people who are in constant comment mode on their phones with their social media friends. On TBN I have seen churches where some folk in the audience are using smartphones, I hope to read the Bible there.

Good advice Pilgrim! Just a note to show how backwards I am. I have never owned or used a smart phone. I bought a trac-phone a while back when I realized that all the phone booths were gone. I know how to make a call and receive a call and that is all.

I don’t have a personal Facebook page, and I attribute it to an experience I had back in 2007.
I was teaching at a Community College, and had just started a lecture when I noticed a student on his phone. I confronted him about getting off the phone and he said, “Hold on!”
Surprised, I stopped class, and asked, “Praytell me, what is so important that you are going to tell me to hold on?” (I sound less sarcastic typing this than I was at that point.)
His response: “This morning I had 112 friends, now I have 111. I’m trying to figure out who I lost.”
I stared at him, dumbfounded, for at least 15 seconds before kicking him out of class.
The point being, social media has so infiltrated our children’s mindset that they cannot make a choice unless it is gaining them social credibility, so moment by moment they are checking to see how culturally and socially relevant they are.

I'm glad I was not born into the mobphone generation. Watching this generation walking around with their nose stuck on the cartoon pages of the phone is sad!! I am sorry for them. And even more sorry for future generations. I have no doubt that modern technology is diminishing human intelligence.

The function of communication is essential.

The obsession of the mobile/smart phone means brainwashing is allowed to become prolific.
