The Economist did a piece today on the matter.  Before people start seeing
red on bliss intruded upon by digital devices, I'd like to direct you to a
quote from the article:

The New York Times reported that the gentleman in question, interviewed by
the newspaper but not named, had received a brand new company iPhone a day
before the concert, replacing his BlackBerry smartphone. An alarm had been
set accidentally, it appears, and he was only able to silence it after much
fumbling in his pocket. A spokeswoman for the Philharmonic told Babbage
that the hapless interrupter, a front-row season subscriber, is mortified,
and that the orchestra and staff feel for him.
