Unless you're a luddite, we can all agree that technology is wonderful. However, there have been times when products designed to make the world easier actually made other aspects of life worse.
Take cell phones, for instance, they make it easy to communicate with each other, but they also ironically distance us from our surroundings.
Actor Will Ferrell has noticed how much portable devices have overrun our lives and he is trying to do something about it.
The comedian teamed up with Common Sense Media to film a series of funny but important PSAs against the use of phones at the dinner table.
If you've had no results from chatting with your family members about keeping their devices away from the dinner table, then perhaps Ferrell's PSAs will do a better job at convincing them.
