YouTube Mini-Movie Shows the Tragic Side of Our Mobile Life

Cell phones are supposed to improve our lives not replace it. If you have friends or boyfriends who can’t put down their shiny objects – show them this sad You Tube film. It has all the great characteristics of a tragedy: boy meets girl but uses mobile phone when cuddling, boy makes phone call in Nature while hiking with girl, boy proposes to girl with just one hand (the other is taking a selfie). You’re probably reading this on your smartphone aren’t you?
