We love our smartphones
At patch’d we are lovers of all things tech. We certainly aren’t going to give up our smartphones, and nor should you. But, like a lot of renowned scientists and neurosurgeons (i.e. really smart people) we are concerned about the radiation smartphones emit.
Can’t put it down
Repeat after me, “I’m addicted to my smartphone”. It’s ok, awareness is the first step to recovery!
Smartphones run our lives
Without them, we’d still be using cheques, calling from landlines, and standing in queues. YUCK
Some drugs aren’t this addictive!
Ever feel anxious when you’re away from your smartphone? Or catch yourself checking your emails at 2 a.m.?
Social media beats being social
We tap more than we talk. We don’t even have to brave the bar late at night to find a ‘date’ anymore.
Well, that’s ironic
We use smartphone apps to lead a healthier, longer life. But unprotected usage is worse for you than a deep-fried Mars bar, covered in lard, and deep-fried again.
