you cant blame cell phones... maybe the frying the brain part, even though there is no evidence to prove any negative side effects from cell phone usage (when I say no evidence, its not definitive, there are pros and cons on both sides).
We must blame our culture and the individuals who succumb to this. I own a phone, I text, I use it. Its a great tool. An amazing piece of technology. I also put it away for hours in the day to focus on whats in front of me. We cannot put blame on technology.
Guns dont kill people, people kill people. Cell phones dont ruin social interaction. People who abuse their cell phones and are too self absorbed to see how their digital actions affect others are what need to be adressed. Same with Facebook, Television, etc, etc.
Their motto is "Dont Tread On Me"...
