Social Etiquette: Phone Stack

It’s no secret that we’re increasingly turning to our mobile devices as primary communication tools. It does voice, email, text, social media, video conferencing, you name it. But have social conventions and etiquette caught up with technology? When was the last time you had a group dinner where no one reached for the phone at some point during the meal?
