Oh, Gwyneth Paltrow. The Oscar winner recently made some comments about how much she loved Spain and how different it was from the US, citing their enjoyment of life more — and attributing it to a lack of cell phone connectivity.
"They aren't running around as much as in New York. They enjoy time with the family. They don't always have their BlackBerry on."
So . . . the key to happiness is letting your BlackBerry die and not recharging it right away?
Maybe she meant not having it always attached to your head (which gets awkward in intimate situations anyway), but I don't think that my level of happiness would shoot up if I turned my cell phone off.
What do you make of Ms. Paltrow's quote?
