Thomas, I think it has to do with socialization. For all the talk about "social media," we've created a world where a large number of its inhabitants are anything but social, engrossed in their little screen and oblivious to those around them. I used to like to walk around my old college campus, saying "hi" to those I encounter, but earbuds and screens eliminate conversations, they don't even hear me say "hi." These days I take daily walks on hiking trails in the parks of my city, and most people on trails don't wear earbuds and aren't engrossed in their screens because the trails are uneven and you've got to pay attention to where you step.

I like talking to people live; smart phones inhibit that. I also prefer paying $17/month for my cell phone for seniors (no text) versus my daughter's "data plan" for $150/month.
