Can one equate love with addiction?
When it comes to the feels you have for your smart phone, a definite case can be made.
But there comes a point, or SHOULD…
When love, by gawd, needs to have some limits!
[via cnet]Nokia plans magnetic tattoos that vibrate when you get a call
Do you love mobile phones? Would you say you’ve got them under your skin? Nokia is researching a way to literally put them there with magnetic tattoos that vibrate when you get a call.
The Finnish phone fanciers have filed for a patent on a magnetic implant planted on or under your skin that informs you what’s going on with your phone, if taking it out of your pocket and looking at it is too much like hard work.
The idea is you get ferromagnetic material tattooed, stamped or sprayed on your skin.
That pairs with a phone or tablet, like a Bluetooth headset, and can then notify you of new calls, texts or other alerts.
If your battery runs low or you have a meeting or anything else your phone needs to remind you about, then the implant in your finger, arm or stomach vibrates.
The strength of the vibration can be altered. And everybody’s magnetic field could be unique enough to act as a technological fingerprint, unlocking a phone or computer.[Read More]
I do not want to be connected to my smart phone?
Via smart tattoo.
I can see how such crazy extremes might be necessary.
Especially considering our propensity to “misplace” our phones.
[via NewsLite]British adults will misplace an incredible 198,743 items in their lifetime, it has been revealed.
Research revealed the average Brit will lose up to NINE items every day, some briefly, with car keys, house keys, mobile phones and paperwork vanishing most regularly.
The findings emerged in a study of 3,000 adults, which also revealed ten minutes a day is spent searching for items such as sunglasses, wallets and phones.
Furthermore the study found men are far worse at losing things than women – with a third of wives claiming their husband regularly misplaces household items.

We often leave our phones…
In the most unlikely of places.
[via LiveScience] A study by mobile security firm Lookout has revealed that coffee shops were the most likely spot for Americans to have their cellphone lost or stolen in 2011. Other top 10 problematic areas:
- Apartments and condominiums
- Grocery stores
- Gas stations
- Pharmacies or drugstores
But come on…
It’s fairly sad, I think…
The places our love for technology often takes us.
Our love most definitely should be avoided.
