Technology/Device Social Crutch

I recently attended a 2-day offsite with mid-level executives at a large client of ours. The evenings were general social events of dinner, drinks, and non-work discussion. I was so surprised to observe how often people talked about their devices or technology as a topic of discussion, referenced their devices in the midst of discussion to look something up, or dropped out of a discussion entirely to read off their devices.

In a rare night away from spouses and kids, in an intimate and friendly environment with interesting people, lubricated by drinks - we couldn't make it 5 minutes without the devices crutch being leaned upon.
