I want to talk about this. I want to talk about this poignant acceptance speech by Ashton Kutcher flying around the Internet and Facebook. You have probably already seen it. I want to say a few things about his speech. Ashton is twice as old as many of the teens watching the Teen Choice Awards. He is also a midwest boy (Iowa) and went through a lot as a kid with his sick twin brother, his parents divorce, and the trouble he got in as a teenager. He is not just Hollywood fluff. He has lived.

Music – to make us feel good (or to phase out when we want to close ourselves from the rest of the world) , maps- to throw reliably unreliable information, whats-app/ sms to stay connected with people across the globe, you-tube to watch stuff and entertain ourselves, around me – to know of places around us..

Our phone is like our soul-mate!! And it makes sure, we can survive alone..

The technology that helps us get in touch with people on the other side of the planet also supports us to shut ourselves slowly and steadily, from people who are physically near us..

Have you tried using your phone for company when you’re having lunch alone? Or try buying a ticket for your phone to sit next to you while watching…
