    Some woman was walking across the street at a crosswalk earlier today as she was texting somebody. I honked my horn and she nearly dropped the phone. It was hilarious

    I think it's good that dumb people have access to smartphones. If it helps kill them off, so much the better.

    While we're at it, I recommend removing the warning labels to a LOT of things.

    I've got it on my Incredible but don't know what other platforms carry Ultra Keyboard.
    I never use it, the text can wait a few minutes or I can slide one thumbed (portrait mode, slider keypad) if it's that important.
    People started being dumb long before smart phones. I'm a firm believer in deevolution. In my generation alone I've witnessed the ability to reason and problem solve without computer aid fall dramatically. As we get more tech smart we seem to be having less and less common sense, or at least the ability and/or use it.

    Texting Woman Falls Through Sidewalk Access Door In North Jersey
    A woman was injured in northern New Jersey Thursday afternoon when she fell 6 feet through a sidewalk access door while distracted by her cell phone.

    The incident, recorded by a surveillance camera, happened just after noon in front of Acme Windows on Somerset Street in Plainfield.

    Authorities say the 67-year-old woman appeared to be texting when she fell through the open doors.

    She fell 6 feet to the floor below.

    A girl and woman walking in the other direction saw it all, and in just a few moments, a crowd gathered to see what happened.

    The Plainfield Fire Division rescued the woman from the hole and rushed her to an area hospital for treatment of serious injuries.
    The access doors were open because crews were repairing gas lines in the area.

    The victim was listed in serious condition.
