I'll admit it: I am one of those inconsiderate douchebags who have to bite their lip to resist the temptation to pull out their iPhone during your boring conversation. I never used to be this way, although I'm an introvert by nature and am not big on social interaction anyway. Yet, slowly over time, I have found myself feeling this overpowering desire to pull out my phone when there's a lull in the conversation or the topic is simply not that interesting. It's not that I really care all that much what's happening on Twitter, Facebook, or one of the million other social media sites. My email could wait. So could the Instagram feed. Maybe I am alone on this. But it feels as if the iPhone has changed not only how I use technology in my everyday life, but to some extent the way I approach the life outside of said technology. Like having my brain rewired, differently.
