There are times and places where it doesn't really seem appropriate to whip out your smartphone. Off the top of my head I can think of several: movies (seriously, why do people answer during a movie), camping (maybe I'm wrong there), Antarctica (pictured - really, all your energy should be focused on keeping warm and eyeing that hole in the ozone layer), during class (as a former TA at a major University, let me tell you this is a growing problem).
For WME Prize-A-Day Day 3, tell us your horror stories about people (obviously you'd never misuse your phone, right?) bungling a social situation with their gadget.
Did some buffoon start check their favorite team's score and yelp during a meeting? Misusing a phone in the car is always good fodder. Maybe some vile parent didn't notice their child wandering out into traffic because they were emailing? Come on, folks, make us lose our faith in humanity.
Today's prize: A 1 Gig Memory Card - SD, MiniSD, or MicroSD. We may not be able to add capacity to people's brains, so I guess adding capacity to people's phones will have to do.
How to win
Simple. Just comment between now and 10 am EST tomorrow morning with your horror stories. We'll pick the winner at random. Don't forget: Every entry in a daily contest doubles as an entry for the Grand Prize and the two Second Prizes! Namely: A Smartphone of your choice plus $300 to spend in the WMExperts store and a couple of Slingbox Pros.
