In cartoons: Smartphones, they are your master

It’s 2015, and smartphones are now an integral part of the lives of many of us. But are we crossing the line? It probably depends on the individual. Some folks know when to shut down their phone, or at least mute them, and to talk a walk outside and enjoy the world around them. Others? Not so much.

Regardless of your own personal phone habits, there is no denying that mobile technology has changed our culture and day-to-day lives for good. In a new post from Blazepress, they gathered up 27 images that help summarize this change and how smartphone addiction rules the modern man’s (and woman’s) life.

Head to the source to check out all 27, though here are some of our favorites:

#gallery-1
margin: auto;

#gallery-1 .gallery-item
float: left;
margin-top: 10px;
text-align: center;
width: 20%;

#gallery-1 img
border: 2px solid #cfcfcf;

#gallery-1 .gallery-caption
margin-left: 0;

/* see gallery_shortcode() in wp-includes/media.php */

For fun, we ask, how much on average to you spend on your phone daily? Do you consider yourself ‘addicted’?

// <![CDATA[
(function () var opst = document.createElement('script'); var os_host = document.location.protocol == "https:" ? "https:" : "http:"; opst.type = 'text/javascript'; opst.async = true; opst.src = os_host + '//' + 'www.opinionstage.com/polls/2271596/embed.js'; (document.getElementsByTagName('head')[0] ());
// ]]>

For those that keep screen-time down to a minimum… how about your friends, family, and co-workers? How does it affect your relationship with them?
