Cell Phones

05 Aug

Brad Thor nails our addiction to cellphones in a comment made in his latest novel, Code of Conduct.

Cell phones had gone beyond being simple electronic devices. They had actually become part of people. Harvath was convinced that every time a person’s phone chimed, that a little blast of dopamine was released into the brain. It was like watching monkeys press on a bar for food. People were constantly looking at them, just in case a text or an email had come in. Take their phone away from them, even if only for a few moments, and they started to go into withdrawal.

It’s amazing how quickly we can become slaves to technology.
