When I say this photo and read the statement I realized how much time people are now on their phones rather than having conversations. Although there are many benefits of having cell phones to have banking and info a finger tip away, it does take away from sitting down and having many conversations that would have been great to pass down. We gain but we lost allot as well

I was discussing at noon with my husband about how much better the old times were. We were not slaves of our phones and our computers, we enjoyed the real life and the nature.

Ahaha! I guess there is truth to that... Although, I personally like that we have lots of info within our reach now, that would have been harder to get before smartphones. Plus, depending on our use of these gadgets, communication can actually be more enhanced now. For example, it's easier to get in touch with people who are far away - people who you just can't actually visit for an actual face-to-face conversation. And we get to not only talk to and hear the person on the other end. If we use some app capable of video calls, we can actually see the other person as well.

I agree! Many more pluses than negatives. Progress is good!

Yes, those were simpler and in my opinion, nicer times. Another member and I were recalling the days of looking up people's telephone numbers in the phone book. That sounds like it was another lifetime ago.
