And whilst we’re on the subject of smartphone over-use, don’t think for one second that this is purely a teenage or child phenomena, as there’s a coined-phrase, Smombies, that refers to the screen-obsessed, status-updating, Instagram-notifying individuals, smartphone zombies. Dangerous, dozy and downright rude, Smombies are coming to a pavement, a railway carriage, a supermarket queue, a restaurant table, a cinema aisle and a theatre box, near you today. Expect no eye-contact, no human interaction, no manners, no recognition and certainly nothing of interest. The irony is that whilst they regard themselves as being increasingly ‘connected’ they are in reality withdrawing from the real world.
