What can be said, really?

There's an ad I've seen a few times recently. It's for a phone, but which one I can't place, and I haven't found any video of it online. Anyway, three white cuties--one guy and two girls, I think--are in a ski lift. The voice-over tells us that one of them is checking email. Another is shopping for one thing or another. The third is... surfing the porn sites? Probably, although they don't say that. What none of them are doing are raising their eyes from the screen and taking in the stunning winter view.

So, to sum up, technology allows you to go anywhere and behave as if you were .absolutely nowhere. Which is a good thing, apparently

Have they built any ski lifts yet that just drop people off at the edge of a cliff? It may be time.

I'm pretty sure the Acme Company that Wile E. Coyote buys from thought of that. :-)
