Wireless communication has altered the way we live on a daily basis for sure. 25 years ago the telephone was just used for a simple phone call. But ever since wireless communication it has gotten a little more complicated than that. We are always available at any moment of the day; a text message can be sent in a matter of seconds.

Phubbing is when you stare at your smartphone instead of actually making eye contact with the person who is trying to have a conversation with you.We are basically learning to disregard the world around us. We can thank smartphones for making our society into a big ol’ sea of stupid (___).
Have we really gotten to the point where we have become that lazy? Some time away from gadgets should do us some good.
