Text Messaging Destroys The Family Road Trip First it was people complaining that children watching DVDs in the backseat were killing the spirit of the "family road trip," but now you don't even need a fancy expensive in-car entertainment system to lose out on all the joy of family bonding (fighting) in the car.

Textually is pointing to a story saying that children in the UK spend a good portion of time text messaging their friends during road trips. They also prefer to listen to music, rather than actually talk with their family, but I imagine that's been true since the walkman first came on the scene. [via Techdirt]
