You know it's a Monday when...

You wake up at 1:00 a.m. and can't go back to sleep! Also, I went on Facebook and realized other people were experiencing insomnia too. Comforting...sorta.

This morning, I talked about the Closing Ceremony for the Olympics. I did not watch the opening but I did see some of the closing last night and I was impressed. It was so awesome to see the visual things they did to make it so special to London. The John Lennon face was cool (and a little creepy). Here are some highlights.



Do you ever rely on your cell phone/mobile device so much that you think you might be a little too invested in it? I just read a bunch of survey  results from a company called Lookout Mobile. I have their app and you can retrieve your phone if you lose it and other cool stuff. Anyway, their study showed some surprising facts about mobile device use. Here are some quick stats below. The full page is located here.

Highlights

Smartphones are essential to our lives.

  • We constantly connect. Nearly 60% said they don’t go an hour without checking their phone. Younger folks were the most addicted: 63% of women and 73% of men ages 18-34 say they don’t go an hour without checking their phones.
  • Our connection never sleeps. 54% said they check their phones while lying in bed: before they go to sleep, after they wake up, even in the middle of the night.
  • We need access everywhere. Nearly 40% admit to checking their phone while on the toilet.

We sometimes break rules of etiquette to stay connected.

  • We act rudely. 30% admitted that they check their phones during a meal with others.
  • We take risks. 24% said they check their phones while driving.
  • We behave inappropriately. 9% said they check their phones during religious services at a house of worship.

We have emotional reactions and concerns when we do not have our phones.

  • 94% are concerned about losing their phone.
  • 73% say they felt panicked when they lost their phone.
  • 38% are most concerned about the cost & hassle of replacing a lost phone
