A creepy compulsion.

Can you believe that some
genius ‘geek’ has invented a ‘sat nav’ device to guide us around the local shopping mall ?
What next ? … Will they be fitting the bloody things to baby buggies and mobility scooters ?
As one who has never used a ‘sat nav’, does not own a ‘BlackBerry’, has never ‘tweeted’ and does not know his ‘apps’ from his elbow, I have to wonder where all this ‘smartphone’ technology will end and do we really need it ?
Well if my observations are correct, many people can’t live without it. In fact there are some of us who are completely obsessed with it, for it seems that everywhere you look fingers are jabbing at, or flicking across small screens searching for Gawd knows what. Take a look at the crowd at a concert, a play, a movie, even a funeral and you are likely see several ’addicts’ sneaking prolonged peeks at their smartphones. It seems that these sad specimens just can’t help themselves.
Perhaps someone can please tell me, can these poor sods find help at …
… ‘Apps Addicts Anonymous’ ?
