My computer screen at work is by far the most viewed thing in my life. The inside of my eyelids would be number two, if sleeping counts. The windshield of my car would be number three if transparent things count (if a screen displaying ever changing images, I think a windshield should count). My family as a whole would be number four, but taken individually I'm not sure if something else would edge them out. It's "food" a single category?

I don't really like social situations like being on a crowded bus or in a long queue, especially when there's the friendly stranger who wants to chat with everyone and make it feel like camaraderie. Those are the situations when I'll get my phone out and pretend to be engrossed.

I only got a smart phone a year or so back and I have become aware of how much I use it. If I'm out with someone i make a conscious effort not to check it.

Smartphones are godsends for we social misfits, I'm not gonna lie.

Cue all the old photos of people sitting in buses and restaurants reading newspapers and books.

Also, most of the photos in that article show more people not looking at their screen, it was usually just one person.
