iWorship my iPhone

Have you people-watched lately? The best places are where they wait—like airports or bus stops. How many are thumbing their phone?  Watch people at sporting events, malls, and doctor’s waiting rooms….same thing.

I’ve seen couples sitting side by side, smiling at their phones. Now eye contact is iContact. Never before has it been easier to be connected to the world and disconnected to someone sitting next to you.

Thoughts are shared in tweets. Status updates suffice for phone calls. And iPhones can do it all. It’s convenient too. Siri recommends our travel routes and advises good places to eat. iCal warns about our food intake. No time for a lengthy call?—just text and use an emoticon expressing the right sentiment.

iBelieve we need to keep a balance between our virtual life and the real relationships we share with those around us. While it's never been easier to stay in touch with hundreds of facebook friends and twitter followers, it's also never been easier to lose our real connections. We need face-to-face time, not facetime. 

iCan tell you how much iNeed you and how much iCare about #youforever, but it will never match putting the iPhone away and doing it with a real heart with real words in real time. 

"I fear the day when the technology overlaps with our humanity. The world will only have a generation of idiots." Albert Einstein

iHope Einstein is wrong.
