Technology is a good thing, right?

The other day at lunch an elderly couple came in after us and were seated in a booth a few feet away from my table.  I watched as after sitting both pulled out their smart phones very rarely looking at each other.  They continued until their meal arrived and upon finishing she picked up her phone and began again.  It saddened me to watch this couple that I assumed had been together for many years seemed to have nothing to talk about.  There was very little conversation, eye contact or any kind of human interaction during the meal.

Yes, technology is a good thing & has huge benefits, but at what cost?
