Always on

I wonder if I'll ever become fully accustomed to the mobile phone culture.

Lying in the garden this evening, finishing 'Century Rain' *, I noticed someone nearby was talking on her phone whilst sunbathing. I suppose it's as valid a use of time as any, though I personally wouldn't have found it entirely compatible with relaxation.

Yet I also saw two people kicking a football about whilst using their phones (and men can't multitask, supposedly). I presume they weren't talking to one another.

Do people never put the things away?


*: Which turned out to be pretty good. I'm sure I'll try other books by Alistair Reynolds fairly soon.
