This is the subject of an independent 2 minute plus video that is titled "I Forgot My Phone". The video shows situations where a smartphone user (or users) have crossed the line. Perhaps the most telling scene is the one where a group is sitting down to eat and while one woman in the group is trying to talk face to face, the others are face down, their attention absorbed by the smartphone in their hands.
Surely we are all guilty of doing things seen in this video and you probably can remember being in similar situations. The thing is, when you are guilty of abandoning the real life in front of you for your handset, it doesn't seem like such a terrible act until you see someone else doing it.

Maybe she has one. She's probably just not a slave to it like everyone else.

The thing that changed that behavior for me was the notification LED. Knowing what the notification is just by the color of the LED lets me know if its important or not. Don't have to constantly check the phone to see what made it vibrate.
