Necks, please.

My paper ran an interesting article earlier this week about a phenomenon called “tech neck”. It seems that with people, young and old but especially young, spending up to 5 hours a day looking at their smartphones or tablets is causing major neck problems. Many orthopedists are seeing a lot more neck injuries due to this.

Combined with the ear-splitting volume cranked up on earbuds, and the propensity of texting while driving, I am worried that the next generation will wind up crashed in a ditch, unable to hear it when OnStar asks if they are okay, and their smartphone gets imprinted on their face via their airbag.
