Sabbath Rest or New Legalism

In an article in the New York Times on March 17th Austin Considine commented on a new Jewish practice for sabbath keeping: no cell-phoning, texting, face-booking, emailing. Here's what the article said:
The experiment, which lasts from sundown Friday, March 19, to sundown Saturday, is the brainchild of Reboot (rebooters.net), a nonprofit think tank of hip, media-savvy Jewish professionals, based in New York, with staff members in Los Angeles and San Francisco.
What about you? How much rest can you get if your computer and smart-phone (even dumb-phone) are on?
