world and life has become very techie,we would forget to even breathe if our gadgets are not update and fully functional.go to a movie and we can see mobiles swtched on at any second ,people donot realise this distracts the innocent audiences attention,makes them even loose their temper.audiences should come well prepared to be away from their gadgets atleast for the duration of the movie,concert,lectures etc.even when the host or guest has requested the audience to switch off their gadgets people can hear phones coming alive.owners are just not ashamed about these incidences.people are degrading themselves.this is the sorry state today.
