I wonder why this, just another addiction, in my book, is
being hyped up to be a good thing?

Being a bus/metro commuter myself, I have noticed this sort
of antisocial behavior. But it doesn't strike me as
something to be proud of. Similar to the endless cell
phone conversations with a virtual tavel partner. Strange
cultural shifts.

We may end up just like the movie Matrix, where everything
done and everything perceived is virtual.
