The mobile phone blurs the limit, previously rather flexible, between professional life and private life, notably in period of holidays.
The mobile phone, as a generalized multimedia object, provokes phenomena of personal psychological addiction. Some intellectuals accuse it for eliminating “timeouts”, henceforth dedicated to conversations, SMS or games, and which notably allowed the observation, the reflection, etc.
Mobile phones accustomed the citizen of the beginning of the XXIth century to be able to join whoever whenever. This remarkably constitutes an important element of security in case, for example, of an accident in an isolated place. Some people reproach it for creating a feeling of emergency and artificial impatience, blurring the hierarchy between what is important and what is not it.
