Both are valid situations. Sitting at Starbucks or outside. Alone or with company (please, ignore me being this stubborn, but when spending time with friends, family, or at events: I put the phone where it doesn't interrupt the time being together with people, folks etc.). It's always kept on silent mode with vibrating alerts enabled. In my pocket, feeling the different types of vibrations, I'm able to decide if it's even worth taking a look at it, or the conversation can go on without interruption.
I rarely go out to pubs, clubs and the likes. And there, my priority isn't browsing the web, at all, instead having a good time with friends.
You see, your last post clearly shows YOUR priorities, not mine. I leave all this browsing, youtubing and time wasting stuff for at night.
Thank you for your input, but please, accept that other folks, other usage patterns. Because I'm not having the slightest objection against YOUR habits (this is clearly speaking about using cellphones). I respect that you like to type fast with both hands.
So, this is just nitpicking, cause we're getting too spoiled with all this super futuristic "can't live without" applications, innovations.... give me a break.
And don't look down on me for this, but always liked and still prefer to write letters or some notes, with the good old pencil, pen. Technology evolves, but that's just too much, for ME, no one forces me to get used to, if not interested in some gimmicks. I'll pass, and life goes on. Wich direction I'm choosing? The most enjoyable, for ME, not for the sake of "getting the latest life changing innovations".
