How she could both read this news and be this news. And how the newspaper could have published this instantaneously, and she looked about for a photographer, and she had the bizarre feeling of time bending all around her, as though she were from the past reading about the future, or from the future reading about the past.”

“WE have all become addicted to mobile phones. They have become our family, our friend, our confidant and to even some they have become our lovers.
But at what cost have they taken over our lives?
We now have less real conversations with real people, face to face. We ignore friends and family members because we are playing games or using apps. We neglect work, studies and learning to do the self same.
Medically, mobiles emit radiation and microwaves which can distort memory and/or brain processes if they are used close enough and for prolonged period of times.
We are losing our society and ourselves all for the sake of a metal and plastic box.
True, phones can help, but along with money they may have also unwittingly become one of the main causes for the downfall of society as a whole.”
Anthony T. Hincks
