What did we do before ?

When I have extra time to wait when I am in an airport I often take vidoes of what is going on around me. You may remember the conveyor belt and Manchester airport at 5:15 AM. This one was taken at National Airport which serves Washington, Dc this past July.  Cell phones and laptops have really taken us over.  I can remember when there was no place to recharge a devise.  Now there is even excess capacity.   So what did we do before?  Talk to some one? Read a newspaper, magazine or book?  Be bored? Be annoyed? How did we manage to wait for planes before all this technology.
