    We are starting to see a backlash against that:
    Quiet cars in the commuter trains; people telling the loud chatters to
    shut up. I and many others, have zero interest in the details of
    somebody's latest affair.
    Evn though I am semi-retired, I like to use my quiet time to wind down.
    Though I freely admit, that I will look at my images, to see how I may
    improve them, during "down time."

    Attention new posters. Beware: ACF is under attack by a small number of
    trolls who post false and misleading replies to questions here, and run
    campaigns of lies against some of the long term regulars in order to get
    them killfiled.

    These are my recommendations to filter their malicious trollspam

    By filtering out messages containing
    <<>> AND <<>> AND <<>>
    in the "From:" header and messages containing "ccountrynet" in the path statement
    you will knock out more than half or even three quarters of the trollspamming in
    this group.

    I also recommend filtering all crossposts, anonymous remailers, and any
    posts with these providers in the path:

    My son has friends all over the world. One day I asked him
    what their gender was. He replied "I dunno, I only know their nicks.
    Does it matter ? ".
    He has yet to talk (face to face) to his neighbors.
    I worry about him sometimes. Maybe he's worried about me.
    Strange world. Phil K. Dick didn't imagine anything like this.

    are you actually saying his snooping on what other people are doing on
    their phones is acceptable behaviour??

    and even if he does 'accidentally' see it, he's making a big deal out
    of what isn't any of his business. so what if someone uses facebook.
    they have a billion users, which means the chances of seeing someone
    use facebook on a subway is not all that low.

    how do you know they're addicted?

    and how is it different than 'being addicted' to a desktop computer,
    other than mobility?
    you don't know what their experience may or may not be, and why does
    the experiences of total strangers matter to you?
    so what? the world is changing, whether you like it or not.
    especially those who look over people's shoulders to see what they're

    nothing strange about it. it's one of many things that are different
    than how it was when you were a kid.

    having friends all over the world is a good thing.

    then you'd better be planning to punch out in the next couple of years,
    because beyond that, it will be difficult to *not* have a smartphone.
    who said anything about voice calls? a smartphone can do *so* much more.
    that won't work for you when you can't find a phone booth. phone booths
    are being removed because just about everyone has a cellphone.

    and good luck if you break down on a highway, miles from anything.
    that's going to be a *really* long walk.

    Somehow my observation about cellphone addicts
    on the subway has turned into me being a pervert/peeping
    Tom spying on peoples' private lives. Methinks the
    closet Facebookie doth protest too much. :)

    Actually I chimed in to provide the minority view.
    I find Wolfgang's view -- that anyone who doesn't
    use a smartphone must not "get it" -- to be surprisingly
    common. It's one thing to find cellphones and GPS
    useful. It's quite another to find them constantly
    indispensible and to think that maps are outdated and
    "hard to use".

    I would not take an accusation from nospam too seriously.

    Guest Guest

    methinks you're making incorrect assumptions.

    first of all, using a smartphone on a subway train does not mean
    someone is addicted. how ludicrous. if they read a newspaper instead,
    would you say they're addicted to a newspaper?

    second, the only way you could see what people were doing on their
    smartphones to the extent of describing icons and scrolling lists is by
    intentionally snooping. your intent was to find out what people did
    with their phones, but without asking.

    third, i do not use facebook.
    at least you realize that.
    they are quickly becoming as indispensable as laptops and desktops are

    Pay nospam no mind. He's like a Jehovah's Witness or Scientologist
    but his "god" is the latest technological gadget.

    Probably the most hypocritical of all of nospam's remarks yet. I
    wonder if he leaves Apple tracts on urinals.

    Isn't that the thing people do where other people "friend" them? No
    wonder nospam doesn't do it. He couldn't get a friend if he had the
    only life preserver on one of the Titantic's lifeboats.

    No. I'm saying you are not prepared to apply to yourself the
    standard which you seem to believe Mayayana should apply to himself.
    He wasn't commenting on the behaviour of just one person.

    Well besides some of the silly stuff (I don't do Facebook, Twitter, or
    Instagram) there are some Apps this old fart finds useful on his iPhone.
    ....and I don't use it to pass the time.
    However, when away from my desktop or laptop, I have access to Skype,
    Dropbox, Evernote, email, online banking, a very good calculator, the
    ability scan a document to produce a PDF when there is no other means
    handy, a light meter which measures incident & reflected light, some
    GPS & mapping apps including Google Earth & maps, a decent calendar, a
    note book which shares notes taken with my computer and iPad, and of
    all things a very good level. Then for those photographers who from
    time to time find it an economic necessity to rent lenses or camera
    LensProToGo has a very nice App.

    There is much more. All I can say is, I am in no way a smartphone power
    user, but when I find a need for one of those Apps I am happy to have
    it with me.

    Here is a sampling of some of the Apps I find occasionally find useful,
    none of them are Facebook or Twitter.

    You must be at least 17 years old to download this app.
    Frequent/Intense Sexual Content or Nudity

    I can't download it. I need Frequent/Intense Sexual Content |
    Nudity. I don't qualify for the former, and I only have the latter
    when I take a bath. And taking a bath can hardly be classified as
    "intense", unless we have a power cut.

    it's two totally different things.

    i don't care what people do with their laptops or smartphones. i don't
    look at their screen to see what apps they're running. i don't consider
    people addicted to a smartphone just because they use one on a train
    (which is one of the most ludicrous things i've read in a long time). i
    don't go into a rant about how kids are having their lives screwed up
    by smartphones.

    so what if a total stranger wants to spend their train ride using
    facebook or playing angry birds or reading or even reading a
    paper book or newspaper. it's their time and they get to decide what
    they're going to do with it.
    exactly. he was commenting on the behaviour of the entire train. that's
    much worse.

    or, he's talking out his ass. he really didn't see everyone's screen.
    he just wants to rant about facebook.

    I believe the "frequent/intense Sexual Content or Nudity" & the 17+ age
    limitation is standard Apple language when anything below the navel is
    illustrated or discussed.
    The best part of iTriage is you don't have to "friend" anybody, and you
    can self-diagnose all your STDs.
    ....and at least you are 17+ years of age.

    Ah .... thank you for clearing that up. You are a true virtual
    Well, I suppose I can download it then. I will, when I get a
    STDs would hardly apply to me. They used to, but when I found
    I could no longer maintain the necessary postures long enough to
    satisfy the client's wishes, I retired. So I'm free from worrying
    about them anymore.
    BTW, don't ever try to self diagnose palpitations (a recommend
    letter on the page above)
    * "iTriage proved to be a great comfort to my girlfriend and I
    as she was suffering from palpitations. We used the app to check every
    possible symptom/cause and looked at related videos and photos. After
    seeing all this information she was satisfied that she was indeed fine
    and nothing was seriously wrong. ITriage saved the both of us a lot of
    anxiety, a possible hospital visit and provided peace of mind at the
    touch of a button and did it all for free. I certainly will recommend
    this very useful app to others." Dan, Pleasantville, NY

    The girlfriend could be looking at WPW. Sometimes a visit to
    the hospital IS best.
