Before cell phones, for most people, if you left your house, you could not be reached. This is no longer the case. Not only can your friends and family reach you whenever, but your job can as well. This has resulted in increased productivity and, in some cases, increased stress. Smartphones enable a person to do even more work on the go so, when you're supposed to be off the clock, very often, you're not. Additionally, entertainment options have increased exponentially. These are my observations.
