What comes after staring into your cellphone?

Walking around the city of course you see lots of people with their eyes glued to their cell phone. The other day I decided to count as we walked through the East Village. About half the people whose paths we crossed were staring into the phones as they walked.

So I wondered what comes next. And I got the answer, I think, in a comment on Facebook. People will call Uber to transport them a few city blocks, so they can devote their full attention to whatever it is that is so captivating in their phone.

I hope people are studying this, because this is a huge transformation on a societal level. No joke.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
