Ms. Vavra, a cosmetics industry executive in Manhattan, looked up from her iPad, where she was catching up on the latest springs looks at Refinery29.com, and noticed that her husband, Michael Combs, was transfixed, streaming the N.C.A.A. men's basketball tournament on his laptop. Their son, Tom, 8, was absorbed by the Wii game Mario Kart on the widescreen TV. Their daughter, Eve, 10, was fiddling with a game app called the Love Calculator on an iPod Touch.
One family. One room. Four screens. Four realities. The family was in the same room, but not goether, Ms. Vavra recalled.
