Do You Love Your iPhone More Than Your Girlfriend? New Study Says Maybe 6/14/17 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

 (Sound of texting on an iPhone) That is the sound of someone changing their Facebook relationship status. Obviously, you cannot actually change your relationship status to being in a romantic relationship with a smartphone, but maybe Facebook should allow you to because according to new research from Baylor University, we check our phones every 4 to 6 minutes and that 46% of people in this study said they have been “phubbed,” that means snubbing your romantic partner for your phone. As you would assume, this is causing problems for relationships and while this study concentrates on romantic relationships, this is really a problem that we all are experiencing in all relationships, romantic, business, whatever. The solution is to put the phone away, I know that sounds simple, but let’s be honest, it’s hard for all of us to put the phone down. Odds are you’re listening to this on an iPhone, but please if you do decide to put the phone away, do after you’re done listening to this. Don’t be a podcast snubber. I’m Chad Whittle on A Whittle Bit of Commentary.
