Do People Do Way Too Many Stupid Things With Their Smartphones?

       A GEICO commercial about that very subject ran a few months ago.  It was funny, but sadly it’s true.  Here’s a list of 10 Other Dumb Things Men Do with Smartphones from Men’s Health magazine.  Laugh and enjoy!

  1. Dropping one (up to $400 worth) into a toilet; a recent survey shows that one in five users have done this!
  2. Sending pictures of your junk to…well, anybody (just check recent reports of what some athletes have allegedly done).
  3. Cheating at Foursquare, which tracks GPS signals from smartphones.  So if you call in sick, make sure you stay home.
  4. Don’t be a jerk with your phone, such as getting sports updates while you’re on a date (another recent commercial).  And can you believe that some theaters are arranging special sessions for people who must tweet?  Get a life, folks.
  5. The GEICO Syndrome – see my opening comments above, and add to them the “fart” app.
  6. Typing things in stupid abbreviations.  LOL.
  7. Texting instead of speaking.  Do you know how many relationships are ended with a text?  I don’t, but one is too many.  Don’t be a coward.
  8. Mafia Wars and watching porn – okay, you get two for one here.
  9. Secretly video-recording the making of sexy time.  Not cool.
  10. Adding something to your permanent record.  Like the idiot who dissed a company after receiving a job offer.  The HR manager read his tweet and withdrew the offer.  The guy is probably still unemployed.

       It’s simple, really.  Just use a smartphone for its intended purposes…

    Hey just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you
    know a few of the pictures aren’t loading correctly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue.
    I’ve tried it in two different internet browsers and both show the same
    results.
