Smartphones are the new cigarettes.

What do people do when they’re waiting in line? Walking? Waiting for a friend to show up at a restaurant? They light up, in a matter of speaking. Do you engage in gadget reflexive action?

    now i wanna write an app that looks like a cigarette burning down, tap to drop the ashes, and listens to mic input to simulate taking a drag.

    Thats a GREAT analogy Krishna! I haven’t even thought of it like that. And I know when I’m without my smartphone, I go through withdrawals…always wanting to check twitter, or my email…or even rss feeds.

Tell me what you think!
