    I was going to make a comment but then I saw my smartphone over there in the corner and I forgot what I was going to say.

        Yep. This crazy behaviour has become so bad.

        I have a friend who was traveling in his car to visit me, a relatively short distance from where I live. He rang me on three separate occasions just to tell me that he’ll be there in 20 minutes, then he’ll be there in 15 minutes, and then that he’s “just five minutes away”. As if I needed a running commentary on something as banal as this.

        I was too polite to say anything to him. I just wondered to myself what this device has done to people’s brains that they feel so compelled to do this kind of nonsense.

      Then why not ditch your phone ? Seriously. If you are at that stage of obsession you have a problem. You absolutely CAN survive without one, you know. I’ve never had one and I do so effortlessly.

    Our household experience is exactly as the study finds. Our teenagers were having trouble getting through their homework; we made them start leaving their phones in the kitchen, and the problem disappeared.

    These people are pathetic. Every bit as much as drug addicts are. They should never have allowed themselves to be consumed by this kind of techno temptation. Anyone who spends more than an hour a day on their phones for whatever reason other than for their job, needs psychological help.

    I have never had a mobile phone, never want one and never intend to get one. I curse the guy who invented them. Because THIS video shows what it has led to ;
