New developments on the little electronic devices seem to come in almost every day. However, you can’t walk down the street without bumping into the users. Heads down, eyes glazed, ears plugged in, they block sidewalks. Heedless of traffic, they blithely stroll across busy streets, eyes glued to their smartphones.
Back a decade or so ago before smartphones, anyone walking and talking into a little box was considered a nutcase. Now that I think about it, the same label applies today to many of those clueless eye, ear and lips roamers. They’re now making streets and sidewalks hazardous to themselves and everyone else who happen to cross their crazed paths.
