Two things: It's not a NYC article; it's Reuters, looks like Reuters Japan.

Second, if the authors had been at a mountain snow festival with me last Friday I would certainly understand their comments about smartphone use. There were hundreds of people there, mostly young people and families with children.

I was shocked (!!) that, considering the event and the scenery, I was the only one carrying a camera (new Sony RX10, bought as a complement to my GH3). There was a guy who had a "Nikon" camera bag with a tripod attached, but I never saw him take the camera out of the bag. Everyone else was using phones - even for big, formal group photos. This was even new to me...why would you take a photo of your child's class, teachers, etc., with a Samsung smartphone?

Of course I disagree with the referenced article, but last Friday was maga-weird, and a bit scary.
