food selfies ruining restaurant industry

When it comes to smartphones and people constantly being on them, it seems like society is split.

Some folks are annoyed by some peoples' non-stop phone use, while others are too busy using their phones non-stop to notice.

One anonymous anti-smartphone person recently ranted on Craigslist, claiming their restaurant, in Manhattan's Midtown East, was being ruined by smartphone users!

The rant got super specific, with the author saying they studied security footage from July 2004 and compared it to a tape from this month.

sexting study 48 percent lies women dishonest Indiana University-Purdue University less into it

Blow out the candles, put down the lube, disengage the nipple clamps, and STEP AWAY FROM THE SMARTPHONE because nothing is as you thought it was!!!

Santa is a lie! Most kids don't even have a chimney! The Wizard of Oz? A lie! Dorothy was dreaming the whole time!

And sexting? Well, turns out that's a lie, too!!!

Researchers from the School for Shattering Wonderful Myths Indiana University-Purdue University conducted a recent study and sexting apparently isn't all that it pretends to be!

According to the data they collected, 48% of sexters are so full of crap that they could get a job in fertilizer sales! The study polled 155 students and, of those who admit to sexting, a whopping two-thirds admitted that they lied while doing it!

Most say they lied during sexting to satiate their partner, but weren't nearly as interested as they let on!

Ugh! Seriously?! That's enough to make our digital dong shrivel!

The study's author, Michelle Drouin, explained why SMS communication is a medium ripe for manipulation. She said:

New Study Finds That More Children Operate A Smart Phone Before They Can Tie Their Own Shoes!

new-study-finds-that-more-children-operate-a-smart-phone-before-they-can-tie-their-own-shoes

Well, isn't this just terrifying?

A new study has found that more young children know how to play with a smartphone than know how to tie their shoes!

According to the research on children and technology, done by AVG, 19% of children from two to five years old - in the US, Europe, Japan, Australia, and New Zealand - can play with a smartphone app, while only 9% know what to do with their effing laces.

Furthermore, more children in that age range can apparently open a web browser than swim on their own, and more can play computer games than ride a bike!

AVG CEO J.R. Smith explains:

“Technology has changed what it means to be a parent raising children today-–these children are growing up in an environment that would be unrecognizable to their parents. As our research shows, parents need to start educating kids about navigating the online world safely at an earlier age than they might otherwise have thought.”

Well, that's good and fine, but we think that you also need to educate kids on navigating the REAL LIFE world, AKA learning skills that will help them engage in physical activity and knowing how to be a functional human being!

Just saying!

BALANCE, people! Help your kids find a balance!

Thoughts??

Google Sells E-Books Now!

Filed under: Tech TalkTwilightBusiness Blitz

google opens online ebookstore

Are hardcover copies of the collective works of Charles Dickens, William Shakespeare, and Stephenie Meyer taking up too much space in your room? Looks like Google's got a solution!

In an effort to compete with Amazon and every bookstore in the world, Google has launched Google eBooks, which will feature hundreds of thousands of titles that you can read on your computer, as well as many tablets, smartphones, and other devices.

Here's what director of strategic partnerships at Google, Tom Turvey, had to say about the new venture:

"Publishers want more competition in the marketplace, and we already have a big investment. We're trying to extend the value of content that exists in the world by enabling people to find it and buy it."

We're interested to see how this plays out, but we're a bit concerned. Is Google still going to let us search for the Barnes and Noble website? How about Borders? They're getting PRET-TY powerful!

Will U pick up eBooks on Google?
