The Emptiness That One Feels After Losing A Cell Phone

Many of us have become so dependent upon that little palm-sized three ounce piece of technology we call our smartphones, that just the mere thought of losing it, we'd go out of our minds. It wasn't all that long ago when we didn't have to worry about keeping up with something that has become an integral part of our lives.

Can You Think of Anyone Who Doesn’t Have a Cell Phone?

New Pew Center research says 85 percent of Americans now have cell phones. Everyone we know has one, right? Except maybe Grandma. She's in that 15 percent that miraculously moves through life without a mobile phone.

One out of every two people over the age of 18 owns a smart phone.

What do you do with your smart phone? If you actually talk on it, you're one of the few!

This is the Most Forgotten Item at Hotels

Have you ever checked out of a hotel, traveled home, and then realized you left something behind in the room?

I have. On a road trip to the north, my family stayed at a hotel in Wichita, Kansas, and when we got home we could only find one Dora The Explorer sock. In the process of jumping on the bed and running around the room, our 3-year old at the time must have shed a sock and a cleaning person whose daughter also may have had just one sock, hit the jackpot.

What is the most common item hotel travelers leave behind? It has something to do with your smart phone.

How Often Do You Check Your Phone?

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.

Hipmunk Android Travel App Sorts Flight Options by ‘Agony’ [VIDEO]

Even people who really enjoy traveling will tell you not all flights are created equal, and that’s where a new Android app called Hipmunk can help.

Designed as an alternative to traditional flight search sites, Hipmunk’s developers say it “doesn’t just show you the cheapest flight first — the app instead sorts by ‘agony,’ which incorporates important factors like how long you’ll be traveling and how many stops you’ll make.”
