Last week I took my 4-year-old granddaughter to the dress rehearsal for her dance recital. Instead of enjoying the show, I pulled out my iPhone to record the performance and focused on the screen. But I recorded in slow-mo by mistake; no video! I missed her dancing both real time and digitally.
A few days later, heading down 42nd Street in New York, I happened upon hundreds of people with smartphones stretched overhead trying to capture a rare occurrence known as Manhattanhenge, when the setting sun aligns with the Big Apple’s east-west streets. Very few were marveling at the actual orb between the skyscrapers; instead they were glued to their screens.
