We use them to keep connected with friends and family, to navigate the world, find a date, take photos, watch videos, and play games at one of the high-end pay by phone bill casino sites, all at the swipe of a finger. Reports now show that more people use their mobile devices to have a bet or wager online, and because these online sites are operated under strict rules and regulations, and have to be licenced to run, increasing numbers are turning to online sites in preference to going out, for instance, to a bricks and mortar casino.


There is no doubt that the Smartphone has changed our lives yet we are still only starting to understand the full impact that this new technology is having on our lives, our relationships and the lives of our children.


Infact, there has been a great deal of research carried out on Smartphone usage, but we are still only scraping at the surface of how this use interfaces with our relationships. Questions like: Is the smartphone helping us be better connected, or is it taking us away from our relationships, and does using the smartphone help us to take a few minutes out from our busy lives, or is it distracting us from real problems, need to be addressed.


What should always be remembered is that the Smartphone is not the real problem as it is actually a pretty impressive tool, what is the issues is how we use that tool, how we use the computer we can carry about in our pocket or bag that is the real issue.


If you ask most adolescents if they could live without their phone, the answer would be a resounding no, but that answer is not just limited to adolescents as many adults would give the same reply.


Take Australia as an example, almost 85% own a smartphone, that is around 16 million people just in one country, and Australia is only the fourth biggest nation of smartphone users in the world, our love affair with the smartphone is well and truly established, so much so that it is the 'must have' fashion accessory to have, and there is even phubbing to contend with.


'Phubbing' (for those who do not know) is the act of snubbing your partner in favour of being on your smartphone and we have all witnessed it (as well as doing it.) How many times can we go into a restaurant and see a couple hardly speaking to each other over the table whilst they are texting away or taking pics of the superb meal, they are out enjoying on Instagram?


Knowing when and when not to use a smartphone, or where is appropriate to take pictures is one thing, but being able to put down that mobile device is a completely different matter.



You have probably used a magnetic air vent car mount before, but the chances are pretty high that you have never used one quite like the Spigen Air Vent Magnetic Car Mount. What sets the cheap yet useful hands-free device apart from most of the others is the fact that it doesn't need magnetic stickers for it to attach to the smartphone. The ones we have used before, usually have the included magnetic stickers which you must apply at the back of your phone for the setup to work, but not with this one. The Spigen car mount simply uses the magnets that are already present inside the compatible smartphones to attach itself to them.



The system is simple to work with and of course offers more flexibility than magnetic sticker-based car mounts and it doesn't let go of your phone during bumpy rides either. Considering that it costs about $6.99 on Amazon right now, we would say that this is an excellent buy, or even a MUST buy! As of now, the Spigen Magnetic Car Mount is compatible with the Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, S6 Edge+, Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge.


Japanese girl using xperia in shower

 

Sony is one of the most popular and first company that makes its whole flagship series water and dirt proof, while we are all amazed with that sort of protection that Sony gave to its flagship smartphones Z series (Xperia Z2, Xperis Z3, Xperia Z4... etc), the question that has never been asked is why making it waterproof ?

 

Making a smartphone device fully operational under water is a big deal, especially in the japanese market, the feature is not just used for just protection or premium-look but to Sony it has a whole different reason !

 

Apparently, the exclusive waterproof smartphone's existence is rooted in a peculiar user habit of Japan's female population! ...young japanese teenager girls, to be more precise. According to Panasonic executive "Taro Itakura", 90 to 95% of smartphones sold in Japan are waterproof because young Japanese women prefer to use their smartphones even while they are taking their showers! That's right your Sony Xperia or Sharp AQUOS smartphone are considered as a "must products" in Japan, possibly right next to soap, shampoo, and a trusty sponge all because that young japanese girls like to shower with them.

Can you really take a proper bath when your attention is preoccupied with the latest notifications and updates? We don't know, but we certainly cannot underestimate Japanese women!
