What about my phone?

You don't have to turn if off if you don't want to. Only make calls on it if it's an emergency, and certainly no texting, or playing games, or messing about with it.

My oven is electric, are you saying I can't use it?

Perhaps that is something that you could work up to. In the first instance we are really just talking about things with screens.

Beware of

TVs in pubs

If you go to the pub and the television is on. Sit away from it. Watching the tv at the pub is most definitely cheating.
