Smartphones at the Dinner Table

Technology at the Dinner Table

Yes. Technology has made the world smaller. A global village. An interconnected grid. Call it what you want. Smartphones control our desires, and have been successful in becoming part of our daily life, even during our sleep.

A recent observation has led me to write this post. It was the rising phenomenon of using (or rather abusing) smartphones during social outings. There was a time when parents would cheap mlb jerseys smack the wax out of our ears if we brought gadgets to the dinner table. But when daddy needs to check So his mail on-the-go and wholesale nfl jerseys mommy needs to play Fruit Ninja, For the taboo has been shattered! Referring to Dan Brown when he asks “Who will guard the guards?”

It’s a cute thing to stay in touch with friends, tweeps, and random Cup strangers through the phone, but it shouldn’t replace the notion of live, physical social interaction! Apart from the cheap mlb jerseys fact that it’s impolite Me to keep tweeting that you’re tweeting and your date is thinking of getting a twitter account to have a decent conversation. It’s just absurd. 

The world won’t fall into pieces if you put your phone down for a meal. Enjoying life beyond our screens has sadly become a lost gift. With Project Glass and the likes are planning to occupy our complete consciousness, take some time to sit down, have a peaceful meal and a decent conversation with your loved ones before uploading food pictures to Path and maintaining your online existence.


  1. Great observation! Actually I also heard as well that some restaurants are designing their tables in a way that allows the customers to place their smartphones.. And some restaurants started putting signs to make customers to turn off their cellphones. (akeed not in lebanon) 😛

  2. I would like to show my appreciation for your generosity supporting all those that require assistance with this important concept. Your special dedication to getting the message along appears to be wonderfully useful and have allowed guys and women like me to reach their targets. Your own interesting useful information means a great deal a person like me and a whole lot more to my fellow workers. Best wishes; from everyone of us.
