    Erm. Only thing that comes to my mind is Lou Reed.

    Jeff, this is so true, it’s depressing.

    Oh so vapid, this is why I always say “you might want to leave your phone in the car” before going anywhere.

    my thought has always been, why in the world would you want a telephone in a place you go to get away from the telephone?

    parker, just like “camping” in a Winnebago with a satellite dish.

    They’re making efforts to replace all those nasty trees with cell towers. Who knows what would happen if someone got three feet from their car and had to call for an emergency supply of sunscreen to be flown in, and couldn’t make contact in the “wilderness”.

    Simple and to the point of the flawed thinking of some. I love my gadgets! But there is a balance. Maybe you are having that “perfect day” because you were not connected. Look around and maybe connect to what is around you and ,gasps, the person next to you. I like being here and stirring up trouble but I Love these simple thought provoking cartoons.

    Eh. Cell phones are always useful to have in emergencies, and lots of things happen on camping trips that are far worse than forgetting your sunscreen.

    “Getting away from it all” implies not spending all day tweeting your friends, certainly, but going anyplace off the beaten path WITHOUT taking your phone along is kinda not-so-smart, if you ask me. It’s better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it. It’ll save everyone a lot of trouble when it’s time to send out the search parties.

    Turn the dam’ thing off, but don’t leave it in the car.

    They have cell towers that look like trees. It is great to get away from it all ,but if the kid on the rocks dives in and splits his head open it is great to be able to call for help. The fault Horatio is not in our Towers but in ourselves , shut the @%&*#$#$@# thing off .

    It’s harsh when you have to come out of your virtual world. Ah, reality…

    It’s a losing battle. The generation being born now will grow up being “connected” every second of their lives. They may not be any better at meaningful conversation, but they’ll be in electronic touch with people all the time. Take that away and they’ll be helpless.

    it drives me nuts but it fits with the fast pace of change

    found myself being driven and impatient to accomplish

    the students though can be seen on campus in 4s and 5s and 3 or 4 will be on the cell with somebody else - i’ve even seen couples - one or both on cell

    i feel the same about higher ed and high school online courses in higher ed - the human component (part of the education in my op) destroyed - e-questions and answers

    will people in the next 50 years be insecure without? will there be a pendulum swing back? will there be more heart attacks? revolution? vestigial faces?

    Put down the cell phone and enjoy the beauty, folks. Some of the most beautiful places I have been to have no cell signal and I didn’t really care. I wouldn’t have even known if the phone hadn’t beeped at me.
