Watched an NBA game the other night and they showed a scene of people

sitting court-side, seats that have to cost hundreds if not thousands of dollars, and all of them were ignoring the action and looking at their phones.

2. I'm going to a music concert where they put your phone in a locked bag until exit . You keep the

locked bag with you
and if you need to use your phone in an emergency there are stations set up outside the performance area where they can unlock your bag, or you get unlocked and return the bag at exit
They will have professional pics from the nights event online to upload
I understand the artist's request
You can always come without a phone to begin with!

3. I remember a geek conference years ago where the audience complained...

that the wifi was so overloaded they couldn't follow the program on their phones.

Looking up never occurred to them.

4. A lot of artists are not allowing phones at their concerts

Jack White is joining a long list who are locking them up before you come into the show.

5. I'm a baseball fan

And I see people sitting in front row seats at the World Series looking at their phones constantly.

I would give my right arm to sit in one of those seats and WATCH THE GAME!
