Thanks, Apple, for Giving Us Something to Talk About!

18 Sep

What can make people forget about Duck Dynasty’s new episode coming on? Apparently, it’s the new Iphone update. Tweet after Tweet, people were venting about their update. If they weren’t complaining, they were complaining about the people complaining! What ever the reason, the IOS 7 has consumed the lives of millions of people.

Apple released their new update this morning, and the overload of users trying to update at once is causing some errors and lengthy downloads.

Why do we care?

Because the thought of not being able to access their phone scares the ‘you-know-what’ out of people. Most people won’t even stop using their phones to cross the street.

How often do people check their phones? 58% of smartphone users don’t go 1 hour without checking their phone.

I have friends who have even checked a text or answered their phone while in the shower.

We have become emotionally attached to an OBJECT. We’re dependent, protective, and attentive to our phones, which sounds a lot like a bad relationship (haha).

    Good idea, but I was concerned you were just going to be posting others’ tweets, which falls a bit short. Instead, you connect these illustrations to some more substantive discussion at the end. Nice job.

      But don’t forget your title!
