My pet peeve are drivers swerving on roads while looking at their phone - oblivious to their erratic behavior. But this does not mean for a second we should get rid of our phones.
I've heard others say that the problem with society today is that we are all stuck in our phones. Only, I don't remember there actually being more talking to strangers on trains and buses over my lifetime. However, I love that I can talk to my family around the world while I'm driving my car and swerving erratically... ok, maybe not while driving, but any other time.
I think it's great that 911 is available practically everywhere now. I think it's great a have games to play while standing in a long line. And the detailed tools I have at my disposal is something I still am amazed at. Facebook for all it's overreaching is such a blessing as I see pictures, and stay in touch with friends scattered miles away.
But tech is like church... if you use it to hurt people, it's a curse. If used to help, it's a blessing. So like we should use church, use tech to connect, reach out to, and help people.
Because People Matter.
