Good or Bad?

I can't tell whether this commercial makes me sad or not. On the one hand, it's very upbeat, etc. BUT on
the other hand, it depicts people in real life paying completely no attention to their surroundings,
work, friends, etc. Will our dependence on technology reach this stage one day? (as I type this on
my computer, not socializing... OOPS).

To try to answer your question of will our dependence on technology reach this stage one day, I think it will, and I think it will happen soon. I admit that I often text while I'm walking somewhere, and I'm not paying attention to what is around me. I can really only see myself becoming more dependent on my phone, not less. I think what's missing from the commercial to make it more telling of the future is everyone else also checking their phones.
