I read that 20 percent of us check our smart phones every ten minutes.
I hate to admit it, but I’m one of those helpless, pathetic addicts. I just can’t stand not knowing what might be going on inside that phone as it sits there on my desk. Has someone sent a text? What new emails have just landed? Maybe I should check Facebook. Perhaps a celebrity couple has broken up….I should see. Stop the madness! But I can’t.
If you’re not checking your phone every ten minutes, a new Time Mobility Poll says you’re probably checking it at least once an hour. And 84 percent can’t go one day with their mobile device at hand. What would we do with our hands if we didn’t have our phones? I shudder to think.
