Last night was a case in point. We decided to watch the closing ceremony of the Vancouver Winter Olympics. Normally I would not pull out my iPhone while sitting on the sofa with a loved one; it seems rather rude in an old-school way. But this was different. Halfway through the closing ceremony, around the time O Canada was being mangled by a teen pop singer, my fingers were itching. After a knowing glance from my partner, I grabbed the iPhone and checked the Twitter stream. Sure enough, it was filled with witty observations from the likes of Dave Jones (aka DoctorJones)
