Walking into things Instead of Looking where you're going
. . . or driving into them
Spelling like a cretin
Thinking a 'smile' or other of its ilk suffice instead of really typing something meaningful
Displaying ever nauseating minute of your life to everyone
obviating the need to plan ahead, hoping "There's an App for That!"
selfies - reason enough to ban the blight
You most painful remark, however is:

that's still true, even with the current phone-in-face melding. I've seen what passes for pictures. A "Disc File Camera[^]" was not a Hassleblad. And it showed. It wasn't even an "instamatic". It would pass for a decent cellphone.
I'd consider driving the car into a restaurant bad manners. I don't want to smell their exhaust. If the person they were with weren't similarly brain-dead, I'd imagine they're sitting at a table to be with them and not watch them grinning at their phone.
A house can be a home or a prison.
I'd be rather annoyed if people had a face full of food wherever I went.
Those miserable devices are ringing and glowing and generally destroying real human interaction, particularly common sense and courtesy - in virtually every venue.
As it turns out, unlike the examples you chose, the use of these devices recognizes no boundaries or limitations in its (mis)usage. Like smoking: once upon a time someone would ask "do you mind if I smoke?" - this changed to where they'd light up the damn things anywhere and everywhere. With a little luck, we'll continue down the path and outlaw them devices in public places.
started using Office 365 for mail and just found setting the junk email filtering just dumb.
1. the settings panel (as far as i can tell) does not actually allow you to navigate all settings, you have to use the search.
2. so i want to search for the Junk Email, because that is what the folder is call. and "junk" or "spam" are the words that have been used for oh, i dont know, 20 years maybe.
3. but no, have to search internet how to switch off, because the the setting is called "Block or Allow", junk provides "Junk email reporting"
so 4. - add in aliases to the search.
**1. correction - there is settings navigation but is on the far LEFT when you are interacting with the search on the RIGHT, expecting menu to be under the settings icon I just clicked, and not do the dumb thing of replacing panels that on the edge of my peripheral
Anything that is unrelated to elephants is irrelephant Anonymous - The problem with quotes on the internet is that you can never tell if they're genuine Winston Churchill, 1944 - I'd just like a chance to prove that money can't make me happy. Me, all the time
I think they have moved on from tourists being herded into endless Hotel Miramars and Bellvueses and Bontinentals with their international luxury modern roomettes and their Watney's Red Barrel and their swimming pools full of fat German businessmen pretending they're acrobats and forming pyramids and frightening the children and barging in to the queues and if you're not at your table spot on seven you miss your bowl of Campbell's Cream of Mushroom soup, the first item on the menu of International Cuisine, and every Thursday night there's a bloody cabaret in the bar featuring some tiny emaciated dago with nine-inch hips and some big fat bloated tart with her hair brylcreemed down and a big arse presenting Flamenco for Foreigners....
