Interesting philosophy at the end about the future of smartphone use. Will it be like smoking on planes?

    I liked that. A couple thoughts:

    "'What is the point of all those instantaneous likes, shares and texts?' he wants us to ask ourselves."

    Dopamine. Little hits of dopamine. I can't remember who made that connection for me (JBP probably), but I have been filtering my device use through that filter and it has helped.

    In fact, I joined Instagram and only lasted two weeks before I deleted the app. My time management skills and my right thumb thanked me profusely.

    I love the free market. There will be solutions found for this addiction if we just allow smart and creative people to be free enough to develop them.
