What else will I check mid project to make sure I'm not repeating the same easily avoidable mistake others have experienced and documented?

Why is it a bad thing to be available easily to friends and family?

What else are you going to use to avoid police while driving?

And so on and so forth...
All of that. I don't spend a lot of time looking at my phone, but JFC you have to be retarded to think life isn't better with them.

- Ride apps means never picking a designated driver
- Mobile boarding passes means I don't have to do much when I get to the airport unless I'm checking baggage
- Photographs whenever of whatever, including whiteboards at work, businesscards, grocery lists, someone's license plate, location of my car in a garage
- Can see and talk to my loved ones without need of a complicated camera/PC setup
- Literally never lost no matter where you are
- Can fuk off to the store or to get my haircut or whatever during the day if I don't have a meeting going; if someone needs to reach me, they can
- If I'm out of town and out with the fellas, I text my wife on state change (going out, safe back at hotel) so she's not worried


The value is just incalculable. If you don't like them, don't use them. The luddite sanctimony, though. Wow.

It's really what you do with the phone. Some people just don't like wasting idle time. For example, you can stand in line at the DMV and twiddle your thumbs, looking for someone to strike up a conversation with about the weather, or you can be researching whatever your heart desires.

You can sit on the shitter and admire the paint on the wall, or you can be watching a DIY video on how to fix that [insert whatever is broken in your house].

Search for that investment opportunity, look for a new job, research that car you wanted to buy, read that interesting article, the options are infinite.

I agree that most people may be staring at their phones playing Bejeweled or taking a selfie, but there are people out there who use the resources available to them with the little time they have to get what they want.

Either way, why you're having a reaction to what people do with their phones just boggles my mind. Let people be, man.

I use mine for pron but sometimes it's hard to focus with all the "dings" each time a work email comes through. It's also harder now that I have a cube instead of an office.

We've enforced this ban on many occasions. Many employers in the area have boxes in the office and employees are expected to leave their devices there throughout their shift.


Moderation.

What do teachers in K-12 do these days? Not that you necessarily know, but I've always wondered about it. I would put a box at the door and require each student to dump their phone in there before every class.

It varies greatly. The good teachers have strict policies.

Here's ours:
Quote:
CULINARY DEPARTMENTAL POLICIES
Cell Phones: Cell phones are not to be used during class time for phone calls, checking messages, email, taking photos, texting or calculating. You will need a basic calculator in your classes. Cell phones are a distraction, unsanitary and must be turned off and in your locker during class time.
Cell phones can be used only during class breaks in the upstairs hallway near your locker.
CELL PHONE USE IS NOT PERMITTED ANYWHERE ON THE FIRST FLOOR.

Do you treat them like unruly children? I picture you doing this in your class
