On 10/7/17, the WSJ ran an article entitled “How Smart-phones Hijack Our Minds”. It points to mounting evidence that the “integration of smartphones into daily life” can diminish such “vital mental skills as learning, logical reasoning, abstract thought, problem solving and creativity.” Concentration and memory too. Bet Apple, Google, Samsung and Facebook ain’t gonna tell you that.
Another great quote from the article “ Imaging combining a mailbox, a newspaper, a TV, a radio, a photo album, a public library and a boisterous party attended by everyone you know and then compressing them all into a small radiant object. That is what a smartphone represents to us. No wonder we can’t take our minds off it.” So, I’d read up on this subject…while you still can….and be wary. Especially with your kids!
