Scary Smartphone zombies are everywhere. They walk aimlessly down the street without emotion, their eyes transfixed on their PRECIOUS.
Much like Gollum thought the ring made him powerful, they think their Smartphone gives them power by connecting them to others, but it really just makes them invisible to the real world. Their PRECIOUS Smartphone is turning them into this:
There are moments when they return to the real world and interact with real live human beings. But the uncontrollable urge compels them to pull out their iPhone, Blackberry, or Android so they can text, email, tweet, or check the status of their friends. And this compulsion can occur at anytime – at dinner, while cuddling on the couch, during a business meeting while someone else is talking, and even on the can (yes, you have probably had a text exchange with someone on the toilet).
However, the Smartphone zombie has potential to be a very cool Halloween costume. But first I must pull out my iPhone and check the status of my Facebook friends to see if anyone else has the same idea. MUST check my PRECIOUS!
