If smartphones do anything, they can give you some perspective on how you live your life.
Me? I'm on the road a lot and working remotely about half the time. It stands to reason my smartphone is going to run a little hot.
How hot you ask? My total talk time last billing period was 3200 minutes. For those of you bad at math, that's 53 hours of talk time. And that's WITH me being on the midline between introvert and extrovert. That doesn't include significant time in Go To Meeting or Microsoft Lync. That's a normal month for me - Am I a freak? Like pictures? Here's your graph (I'm the one in blue).
How about data you ask? I came in at a robust 8 gigs last month. That seems like a lot until I see my 14-year old outpaced me. He's got first world problems for sure. Is reading fundamental to his generation? Only if it's on a device, and potentially on Reddit. Here's the data chart (He's green):
Finally, we come to the real change in my life. I'm texting a lot more and emailing less. That's part me warming up to text and part me fishing where the fish are - if you want immediacy, you've got to hit people on text....Here's your chart, which brings me in at my new baseline - 1400 texts per month, up from an average of 200 at the same time last year.
Do these smartphone stats make me look fat? Hit me in the comments if you feel like judging me.
