Creepy Phone Issues

From the Daily Mail:
Young people's attachment to their mobile phones is eroding their personal relationships, according to a new study. 
The claims come after research revealed that young adults - in addition to sending over 100 texts - check their mobile up to 60 times a day. Experts behind a new study have now said compulsively checking a mobile phone is an addiction similar to compulsive spending or credit card misuse. 
They said their research showed mobile and instant messaging addictions are driven by materialism and impulsiveness - which also plays a role in behavioural and substance addictions.
Not at all surprising.
