The Prince Charles Cinema in Londons Leicester Square is taking matter in their own hands by employing so-called ninjas to stop rude texters. A semi questionable method, but at list they look great in leotard.
Jon Rettinger from TechnoBuffalo rants about our constant need to check smartphones in public places.
Before Apple and Google took over the phone world, people were less attached to their devices and could go out to dinner or a movie without being distracted by their phones. Now, anywhere you go you are almost guaranteed to see someone using their phone to check Facebook, read emails, or send texts instead of socializing and interacting with the people around them.
Jon has fallen victim to this behavior but has found a fun and creative way to stop it…
Instead of becoming slaves to our smartphones, let’s take back control of our lives. Let’s raise the awareness for having less push notifications, less addictive apps, less interruptions when we meet other people.
We don’t have to stop using technology – quite the opposite. Technology is a great thing, it can help us be smarter, more productive, up to date, in the know, more social…
But we should use it smarter than we currently do, we should ask the App developers to stop making us addicted.
