Playground children having more accidents because parents are too busy playing on their smartphoneshttp://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-2237034/Unsupervised-children-having-accidents-parents-busy-playing-smartphones.html#ixzz2D2hadk00
This technically doesn't belong in here. Probably more suited to a thread on their hated of technology in general. It is very very odd how the Mail tries to turn it's readers against modern technology while at the same time catering to it. Website, Phone App etc.
Yes, yes all these gizmos are terrible. People constantly looking at their phones on FaceTweet and Twitbook. We are going to make sure you hate it, too....Oh, by the way, "Follow us: @MailOnline on Twitter | DailyMail on Facebook"
Pretty funny comments, to be fair. Completely unintentional, obviously. Just sheer stupidity.
Smart phone is the ultimate misnomer, like calling the village idiot Einstein. Just take a look at the users of smartphones and those who spend their lives on facebook - not very bright at all!

Nice little example of the anti-facebook drip taking effect.
When will the medical profession accept that if someone who cannot live unless they are attached to and using either their cell phone, I pad, computer 24/7 at the expense of their responsibilities and jobs has an addiction. - Me , out there
Not one of the worst by a long shot, but from my experience, the people who use their smartphones/pads the most, are usually using it more for business purposes. These people fail to grasp how useful these devices actually are and just see them as some distraction which they don't understand.
I took my daughter out for dinner, we were chatting away (well as much as a 2 year old can) at the next table was a father and his daughter who was probably 10. The entire time they were there he was on his iPhone, he only put it down to eat. This poor little girl just sat there looking at her hands for the duration of the meal. It made me want to cry.

And you were watching what's going on at the table next to you the entire time rather than engaging with your daughter? So much better.
I am fed up having to sound a horn warning to alert fat so called "mothers"that their offspring is out of control next to a main road whilst she has a phone stuck in her ear! And before the red arrows begin YES most of them are not just fat but obese.
