It’s super dangerous to take a selfie while you’re driving. But since we just can’t survive without those photos, maybe this is the answer?
Chrysler just created a new car called the Portal that takes selfies FOR YOU. There’s a camera mounted in the car that automatically takes pictures of everyone inside and sends those pictures to their phones.
For now, it’s just a concept car, so there’s no word on whether they might really produce it one day . . . or whether they could add the selfie feature to their other cars.
…Now they’re just trying to figure out how to get the car to wear a bikini and make a duck-face.
How many times a day do you check your phone? A hundred? A thousand? Are you literally looking at it RIGHT NOW? It’s scary.
According to a new study by the consulting company Deloitte, Americans checked their phones a total of NINE BILLION times A DAY this year.
That means we looked at our phones a total of about 3.3 TRILLION times in 2016.
About 175 million Americans have smart phones, so that means the average person checks their phone roughly 51 times a day, or almost 19,000 times a year.
The study also found almost HALF of us check our phones in the middle of the night . . . 90% of us check our phone within an hour of waking up . . . and the first thing we look at in the morning is our texts.
Man, I wish someone would touch ME as much as they touch their phone. Then maybe my dad would respect me.
A new study found we touch our phones an average of 2,617 times a day. That includes every single touch, tap, and swipe . . . so if you’re texting, every letter you press counts as a touch.
And the 10% of us who use our phones the most touch them 5,427 times a day.
The study also found we use our phones 76 times a day, which is about five times an hour. And we’re using them for a total of two hours and 25 minutes.
And finally, 87% of us sometimes check our phones in the middle of the night.
I know that telling you to put down your phone is like telling you to chop off your left arm . . . but you REALLY should do it once in a while.
A new study found that the key to a successful relationship is putting down your phone and doing two things instead: Spending quality time face-to-face . . . and being affectionate.
The researchers say, quote, “No amount of texting can compensate for a lack of either of those factors.”
But here’s the problem. Most of us are tighter with our phones than our partners.
Another survey just found that 53% of people admit that they spend more time on their phone than with their significant other . . . and two-thirds of us get distracted by our phones in the middle of conversations.
