The cheaper this stuff becomes the less real interaction between people as everyone has their heads down in virtual interaction. I wonder if in the future we're destined to lose our voices?

I am sure in the near future, almost everybody use visual visors on their head, talk to each other either thru it or thru their advanced cyber palm on hands.

I am sorry to correct you. They are toys, instead they are tools of better living in the digital era.

I assume yoou meant NOT toys. Even so they are still made by exploited child labour.

There's a balance
I'm seeing families all sat in a room, heads down, no conversation
Mobile devices in restaurants as both partners sit opposite and communicate with other people - heads down. I assume they're talking to others - if they're talking to each other that would be sad...it happens in work environments now...people two desks away communicate by email / messaging.
people half watching films - missing key scenes as they "multi-task"
People in cars heads down - missing the views
I could go on. Maybe I'm just getting old and the technology is starting to surpass me. Don't get me wrong I have it all ipad, iphone, laptop, pc at home and office, pc in music room. I'd say I am an over user in the office environment. I just feel when you move to the living room/car/restaurant/party/concert you should switch off and enjoy the moment with the people you're with.

lol I witnessed someone doing that with toilet rolls once, I mean does it really matter what colour?!!Grin

But on the other hand have you tried to get through to a big company recently? Tried to get through to E.on on the phone but I refuse to wait more than half an hour using my phone bill so tried emailing them instead. You get an instant (automatic) response all right but it takes five days (min) to actually get an answer and then you cant reply to the email because its a non-reply to address! And if you email again, yep another 5 days wait or if you use the complaints email its 10 days! lol

well, they don't want their boss hearing what they're saying !!!!

Seriously (or perhaps that is serious in some offices), if they're saying "oh look the sun's some out" email is a bit silly, but if they want to give me some info, email is often more sensible than verbal communication. I'd only have to write it down and type it in again. And you don't have to interrupt anyone else's afternoon nap I mean train of thought Smile

Er..you posted this about 3 weeks ago, Kombizz asking us to give our contact details to someone somewhere in the world.

And the reviews that I have red on these devices say they are very poor.
