Using mobile devices during social situations is OK. Its 2013 going on 2014 and that is just how our world is now. If you look back on TV Shows and Movies you will see many futuristic episodes and scenes imagining the future just like how we live now. People talking to each other on computers, (Skype), people talking to each other face to face on phones (Facetime), people looking at another person and seeing everything about them in front of their eyes instantly (Google Glasses). Its the future and WE are actually a part of it! Its awesome. You can get in an argument with your friends, make a bet, and find the winner within seconds with SIRI and Google. Check ALL of your party in and tag a group photo to share with your friends and family on Foursquare and Facebook. It is just a way of making everyone in your life feel like your together all the time even if your miles a part.
