I noticed this addiction slowly coming over so many over the years. Being older I only use the telephone to talk to people. Others seem to have their whole lives rapped up in them...strange.
On the other hand by the standards of young people I guess I'm strange in that I've never texted anyone or anything in my life played a computer game...other than Pong 40 years ago, and don't have a smart phone.
I recall when I bought my current phone the young sales person was stunned that I didn't want any of that digital crap that seems to come with them. I said, "...I want a telephone...that's all...I just want to talk to my still living friends my doctor, and my bank."
The kid was mystified.
