    Or being the only one with a data connection. Everyone glares at you like "why don't you look it up and tell the rest of us"

    A person sees your Galaxy S3 and quips "oh, I hate android, I thought you had an iPhone "

    If it was smart it would go into flight mode when it senses drunken patterns in your typing

    Or sense via accelerometer movements and gyroscope input that you're in a vehicle and disallows texting or other communication

    "Computer! Open messaging!"

    "Unable to comply! Texting while driving is not authorized"

    When your sister calls you from Walmart, on her SMARTPHONE, and asks you to look up and see how many usb ports and if there is an hdmi port on her Chromebook. Uh, hello?

    I only see Chromebooks at Best Buy. So the question is legit.

    I would only disagree with you if she had bad signal, slow Internet, or her Internet usage wasn't free.

    But I get the same a lot now. Mainly checking the lottery results for my dad and the weather for my mum

    Or when people expect for you to know what the weather is suppose to be. And, get mad at you if its wrong.:thinking:

    or like checking your teenaged daughters location on family maps and finding she isn't really working late.:(:mad:

    I'm sure smart phones and access to the internet ruined or changed the good old fashioned pub quiz. They'd have to do something like, anyone caught with a phone or a tablet will be instantly disqualified.

    That doesn't need a smartphone - dumbphone, SMS and a friend on the internet will do it.

    Someone asked me today (I work in Mobile at Best Buy) if I knew of any restaurants in the area (San Jose, CA). The person had an iPhone. SHEESH.

    TBH I don't think there's anything wrong in asking a local person for a second opinion, especially about something like finding a good restaurant. Sometimes real local knowledge is better than what one might read on the interwebs.

    Some of us don't have that location, restaurant, maps, friends stuff on the phone BY CHOICE.
    Even if I could find family with a location service, doesn't mean I can make them answer a phone or text. Since they are all adults ---

    I can look up an item to see what components it has, etc. I can check my own weather and baseball scores.

    On the other side, though - I can tell you what bird, plant, tree you just saw, or how to find M31 without a data connection.

    I totally agree. I was mostly "venting" because it was a situation in which we had already discussed smartphone features, etc...

    I happily obliged, don't get me wrong. Just wanted to share an experience.
