Lighting up a darkened environment, such as a train at night, with your jumbo tablet screen is inconsiderate. Others usually don't really care if you ask nicely first. When in public, turn screen brightness down as a courtesy.
9) Share only with permission.
Sharing pictures of current locations is a great way to update friends and family members. Don't take photos of strangers, however, without permission — and never post pictures of strangers on social media sites.
10) Exercise good taste.
Keep the content on your screen at a General Audiences level. Don't call up risqué videos, photos and websites in public areas.
And, finally, please do share this week's column — with anyone you think might agree (or even benefit). All of us in this digital world thank you!
