Phone addiction: comic edition
|January 16, 2012||Posted by Sophy Bot under Internet culture, Mobile technology|
It’s not exactly a secret: pretty much all of us are addicted to our smartphones and other internet-connected devices. Gizmodo recently posted a real-world game where everybody at your lunch meeting / romantic dinner / non-LAN-party social gathering stacks their phones face down on the table; the first person to check their phone pays the entire bill. Saturday Night Live poked fun at our screen addiction this weekend with a parody commercial for an app that sends realtime notifications about “what’s in front of your face” and the Simpsons got in on the action with their own mock social networking app, SpringFace. And so, here’s another set of comics (and one comic infographic) depicting the modern internet-connected life: the phone addiction edition.
…and for your bonus unrelated comic: the distraction that is the internet.
