It’s impossible to see yet a single person who doesn’t cross the street completely absorbed by a small device that he wears either by ear or by hand. You can hear him shouting, shouting, preparing for meetings, laughing, gesturing, commenting.

The bottom line is that you can safely watch for a message to come up somewhere – because that’s what matters – whatever message it is.

There is not enough leisure time.
The GSM monopolizes the attention to itself only from the rising until the going to bed.
It will go straight into the wall.
