Phone and TV When I watch TV, my phone is always in my hand. And every time there’s a dull moment, I do a quick scan. I think it’s low probability, on the show something key that I miss. But sometimes later I find out – it often was the main plot twist. I don’t seem to learn, that next time I focus on the show. But TV can’t keep my attention, it’s just way too slow. I need my phone in my hand, scan the news to get the facts. Without it I could be missing something, it’s hard to just relax. I can’t watch a whole movie, without glancing at my phone. If I don’t check it occasionally, I feel so very alone. I cycle through the same apps, something new usually on some. Because if you have a phone, you never have to suffer boredom.
