You Can't Fix Stupid
I'm sorry but there are some things technology just cannot fix.  Stupid is one of those things.

Just be present.
Just put your phone down. Whatever it is, I'm sure it can wait. I see SO many people who are glued to their devices ALL the time -- if you fall victim to a pickpocketer, as Lorna mentioned, or trip because you're not paying attention, you have no one but yourself to blame.

More danger than looking silly
The young woman in that photo risks having her bag snatched at best, being assaulted at worst, if there are not people nearby. I fail to understand how anyone thinks it's a good idea to be totally oblivious to one's surroundings in public. Earphones are bad enough, but at least your eyes and most of your brain are engaged if you're just listening to music. 

If I saw my daughter doing this, we'd have a serious conversation.

We're seeing new titles in this digital revolution, new responsibilities, new business models, and major shifts in technology spending.
