It is not a rare sight anymore to find a group of people sitting on a table, all of them busy with their cell phones or laptops or other gadgets. In today's "busy" world, people do not need people anymore. Just give them a gadget (a laptop, a cell phone) and they can live for hours together with it without talking to anyone. People do not have time anymore to sit and talk to people. Forgetting time, it is becoming increasingly difficult to get enough attention or a mere acknowledgement from a people these days. Why has the world become so materialistic?

Thanks SidKemp for sharing your thoughts!
Thanks for your response Lisa. And thank you for sharing a totally different view point on the subject. As you very rightly pointed out that its all about the people and the way they perceive & deal with things and people around them.
Most people forget that a printed book is an information technology gadget,invented about 600 years ago. Under it all, it's about how we relate to people, information, and things.
Thanks Renee. Totally agree with the email example. I have faced such scenarios myself. Sad but true!
Thanks for your answer Hui.
