    I don’t believe in a generation ruining a product. That makes no sense. Humans will be humans no matter what period of time. We’re just affected from what’s around us.

    Smartphones and texting is kind of confusing as many of our parents did not have smartphones and texting growing up. So many people don’t get how to “text” right (I as sure he’ll dont)

    But it may even out as time goes on I believe.

    We look right through the screen to the content, and the environment of the phone is invisible to us.

    The phone now is spread across the world from Africa, to the Middle East, to Asia, to Oceania, to North and South America, to Europe and the Russias.

    We are enchanted by the smart phone, we can't take our eyes off it, or our block our ears, or stop feeling it in our hands, we are enchanted and entranced by the smart phone.

    The illiterate and the literate are enchanted by the smart phone.

    Does the smart phone have a different effect on the literate or a different effect on the illiterate?
    Literacy gives us the literate individual, while the illiteracy of traditional tribalism gives us full emotional engagement, and the new electronic tribalism also gives us full emotional engagement across the world.

    Fortunately for prosperous nations literacy is the antidote for both traditional tribalism and electronic tribalism.

    Unfortunately for impoverished nations without literacy, electronic tribalism is placed on top of traditional tribalism, driving them into a frenzy, and we see this every day in Africa, the Middle East, and parts of Asia.
