The November 2, 2009 issue of New Yorker magazine shows a reality scarier than Halloween. As their kids trick-or-treat, the time-honored tradition of annoying neighbors to get free candy, the parents on the cover of New Yorker magazine are busy checking their smartphones.

The cover may, at first, seem hyperbolic. But it may be closer to reality than you think. So if you’re in charge of taking some kids out tonight, think twice before taking your iPhone along for the experience.
