Have you notice how most people are glued to their phones even while watching TV? I came across this article that sheds further light on this emerging trend and I guessed it grabbed my attention because I do the same thing. In the middle of whatever particular show, I usually text friends about the show and use my various apps during commercial breaks. The article shares a lot of user statistics regarding the population of Americans that watch TV while texting including their gender and age. It also mentions how the growth of smart phones was the primary reason for the surge in cellphone usage while watching television.
I agree with most of the findings in the article because it is extremely difficult not to be on your cellphone, especially when you home relaxing or engaging in a leisure activity. I find that there's always much to learn about your phone and you would always want to discover new things. Additionally, smartphones have become little sized computers in our pockets and thus making our access to information, people and things very easier and readily accessible. I’m curious to know, does anyone else do this? And what do you use your cellphone for while watching TV?
