Yet another way our smartphones are hurting us

Yet another way our smartphones are hurting us

More and more studies are looking into the potentially hazardous side effects of screen use on youngsters, from young children — who shouldn’t be given a tablet or smartphone for distraction purposes — to teenagers, who might develop certain sleeping disorders from too much smartphone, tablet, TV or console access.

A new study published in the BMJ Open journal now reveals that scientists have found out that the more hours teenagers spend looking at a device during the day, the less they sleep, and the longer it takes them to fall asleep. More →

The iPhone was a ‘flop’… and look where Apple is now

The iPhone was a ‘flop’… and look where Apple is now

What does success look like? Well, it looks exactly like the iPhone. I just can’t seem to get this ridiculously stupid CNN article from earlier this morning out of my head, and I did some digging as a result. In case you missed my tirade, a CNN reporter essentially asserted that the Apple Watch will be a flop because it won’t instantly represent a substantial portion of Apple’s revenue.

Ugh, indeed.

At the end of my post, I noted that the iPhone was obviously a flop as well in 2007, if one applies the same logic. So now, let’s see what that flop looks like today. More →

This free app for iPhone and Android wants to stop banks from stealing your money

This free app for iPhone and Android wants to stop banks from stealing your money

Mobile app maker PrismMoney is on a commendable mission. As the company points out, more than 60% of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck. According to a study published by Bankrate earlier this month and covered by The Wall Street Journal, only 38% of people polled said that they had enough money in the bank to cover a surprise $500 repair bill or a $1,000 emergency room visit.

At the same time,PrismMoney also notes that banks in the U.S. recently raised average overdraft fees to a record high of $30 per incident, which led to the collection of overdraft fees totalling $32 billion in 2014.

It’s hard to imagine that one app can undo all of that damage, but Prism aims to try. More →

Why you shouldn’t share your iPhone or iPad with your young child

While smartphones and tablets might be helpful when it comes to keeping your kids entertained or teaching them various skills, you may want to hold off on letting your kids use them until they’re at least 30 months old. The Guardian, citing Boston University School of Medicine researchers who talked to the Pediatrics journal, says that use of smartphones and tablets at that age might have significant adverse effects.

Here’s why the iPhone is better than Android

Here’s why the iPhone is better than Android

Apple is better than Google. Google is better than Apple. The iPhone is better than Android phones. Android is better than the iPhone. The argument will rage on for years to come, and the truth is all four of those statements are accurate. The iPhone is better than Android… at some things. Android is better than the iPhone… in some ways. And so on.

We’ve covered a few posts in recent history that explain various ways Android phones are better than the iPhone, and now it’s time to take a look at the flip side of the coin and examine why the iPhone is better than Android handsets. More →
