We've all seen them, the iPhone Zombies, walking around so engrossed in whatever they're doing with their phones that they're oblivious to what's going on around them.

Most of the time they get away with it, before they meet a grizzly end some stranger will put out a hand, or yell, or honk a horn and they'll be startled back to reality.

Most of the time.

The 2011 road death statistics for my state are in, and there's been a 28% increase in pedestrian fatalities. Police are attributing it to the iPhone Zombie effect.

It turns out that "Look both ways before crossing the road" stuff our parents told us was good advice.

So, enjoy your geek toys, but be careful, m'kay?

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.
