Yeah, I have to admit I didn't get this at first, but it seems obvious now. Which is a little bit of a disappointment. I was perhaps reading too much into the ads.

I was thinking more along the lines about how mobile devices have possibly made us more isolated from each other. Not because they're difficult to use but because we're too busy staying connected to our own worlds till we're not paying attention to the one around us. I don't know if that's true; it just seemed to be what was implied by the ad. And somehow the new Windows phone is going to save us from this.
