I do see all of the complaints as valid. The rebuttals have merit as well. What it comes down to me personally is that seldom are kids responsible with technology. Having gone through the digital/hybrid model, when given the opportunity, *most* students, even those who are typically responsible, will not have the discipline to do what they need to do. Adults are the same way. Has anyone ever been on their phone during a boring faculty meeting only to gripe at students for doing the same thing? Smartphones are great -- but they certainly have caused a lot of problems as well.
