Smartphones and tablets aren't totally responsible for computer-related static loading, but they certainly are making the problems worse. Now that it's so easy to constantly be on-screen - switching from desktop to laptop to tablet to smartphone and back again and again - our muscles are never getting any downtime.

If 9/11 Had Happened In 2014 Would We Have Seen WTC Selfies?

Terrible public behaviour has always been with us. I believe that the taking of selfies at tragic events will subside as people establish new norms of public etiquette. At present we just don't know how to behave.

I, myself, am a self confessed social networking addict. My thumb will always gravitate to the Facebook App without a moments pause and I really don't always realise that I'm browsing the feed. Is it really an awful habit? I'm not convinced either way just yet, but I did believe that 48 hours without it might be torture. I'm happy to report, I was wrong.

The digital age is upon us, and has been upon for us for quite some time. No longer do we communicate with our mouths as we type down in a tiny messaging box the words that no longer reach our eardrums.

Smartphones and tablets have quickly become a part of our everyday life. More than half of Brits use a smartphone or tablet whilst watching TV, 81% of under 25s sleep with their phone next to them on the bed and a shocking 35% of tablet owners admit to using their device in the bathroom.

I heard murmurings of a new dating app called Tinder. Someone had dressed it as "Grindr, but for straight people". Now, for all of you who don't know, Grindr is - in my limited knowledge - an app that uses your location to search for potential mates that are in your area. You make contact. You agree to meet. You agree to meat.

How Long Until Our Entire Lives Go Digital?

Children are growing up entirely computer literate, which will be beneficial in our modern, digital world, but really, why do eight year olds need smart phones? Children should spend their youth discovering the world first hand, exploring what is around them, and not doing it through a screen.

Why Are They Called 'Smart' Phones Anyway?

I must at this stage confess, I have an iPhone 4S. A bizarre statement to make while trying to recruit members of my anti-smart phone army, but bear with me. I have only had it since December and, no, it wasn't my choice.

How Will You Be Watching the Rio Olympic Games in 2016?

Mark Hillary | Posted 05.11.2012 | UK Sport

I believe it is likely that a majority of fans will be consuming the Rio Olympic coverage on their phones. If you remember how the BBC Olympic app worked, allowing sports fans to select news about their team only or even a particular athlete - now overlay this with the ability to get a live feed from all sports all the time and that is probably what normal will look like in 2016.
