It sounds like something out of their college brochure. Technology is just a tool, and you don't need to drop a hammer to find yourself. You just have to use it properly, for what it was intended for. People who are addicted to their cell phones are addicts just like any other addict. Put the blame were it belongs.
I guess it might be a because I'm a wee bit older, but I am not tied to my phone, or to any piece of tech. In fact, I turn my phone off at night same as my computer. I walk in the park every day, sometimes with my phone listening to music, but many times not. Sometimes I walk with other people and talk with them. But I do keep my phone close by in case I do need to use it for what it was intended for.
