As I sat down on the subway in Boston last week and looked around, I was amazed by the number of people who had their heads buried in some kind of flat hand-held web-surfing rectangle. Now, don't get me wrong. It's not that Croatians (and other Eastern Europeans for that matter) don't use small electronic devices. The point is that they're not constantly browsing the Internet on their BlackBerry. They're not looking at pictures on facebook with their Itouch. They (generally) simply text and are done. I would guess that most Eastern Europeans would be shocked if they saw what I saw the other day. I sure was.
At the risk of promoting a rather hypocritical advertisement (isn't the point to get you to use their phone more than someone elses?) this commercial exaggerates, but is dead on:
