Stanford University study finds students addicted to the iPhone
Apple's little bundle of joy truly has a profound and long lasting impact on some of its owners – apparently a study conducted by Stanford University shows that its students are completely bonkers over the iPhone. The survey found that 20 out of 200 students were at the far extreme end of the spectrum – specifically they're completely addicted to the iPhone while a mere 6 percent classified themselves as not addicted at all. There are some probable reasons why so many people gravitate towards the iPhone, but the study also found that 85 percent of students use the smartphone as an alarm clock, 15 percent were scared that it was converting them to media addicts, and 75 percent say they are known to fall asleep while still being tethered to their handset. We'd surmise that results would be similar throughout any kind of cell phone seeing that these devices truly keep us connected – even to the point that we don't want ourselves to be disconnected from it at all.
