US Smartphone
We do all know that the smartphone is at the higest point right now. You are able to access anything you heart desires on the smartpone.  I have to say I use mine alot.  I work from it, send my emals, music and even watch my shows.  There are some people that dont have tv because of this.  I do also have to say that this does sound like and interesting study that they are doing.

V.Newman,

I may be an anomaly but I'm an anomaly with a long history that goes deep into many cultures ...

if you do follow the link, notice which way everyone is facing and what nearly all of them appear to be looking at!

Re: Friends
@JohnBarnes, I actually do the same thing - the TV is a passive bystander for me while I do something else like clean, do laundry, cook, etc.

My husband just tells me to turn it off, but I treat it more like a radio show.

I do however think you are anomoly in "watching" a fire though :)

Hahaha @Joe, I don't have them in the bathroom unfortunately, but I have thought about putting the smart TVs on a swivel so I can see them from multiple angles.

Re: Friends
@afwriter: Man, you've got me pining for an apartment I missed out on many years ago.  It came furnished and there were TVs in every room (bathroom included).  I would have rented it but the landlord took it off the market.  I wound up having to search for another couple of months -- and settle for a place not nearly as nice.

Re: Friends
@dcawrey: There have been a lot of studies over the past few years demonstrating that people like to multi-screen -- use a device while viewing television.

For a while, advertisers tried to leverage this with television show-specific apps to use while watching a particular program.  Nowadays, they've gone back to relying on branded hashtags and hoping for the best.

@vnewman: Well, remember, before TV, the radio (those big, funiture-like jobbies) used to be the living-room gathering point.

Re: Friends
@John it's good you join the rest of the group, even if you don't bother with the TV. At my house, someone is almost always reading something while sitting in the living room with the TV on. We watch some things together, but not everyone has the same interests.

Re: US Smartphone Penetration Hits 80%, but Still Lags TV
Mike Pouraryan,

I don't know if I really see any scary downside to letting people control what comes at them through their tv screens more and more. The whole thing reminds of Gregory Bateson's illustration that if you are studying someone cutting down a tree, you are looking at a dialogue between the person, the tree, the cut in the tree, the axe, etc. and the whole "mental" system extends well beyond the boundaries of the skull. Similarly, a really interactive mass communication system might come to resemble mass telepathy.

Nothing to worry about!  Just reassure yourself watching Forbidden Planet!
