Why Our Love Affair Keeps on Growing
CONNECT WITH HBB ON SOCIAL MEDIA
We as a race sure seem to enjoy complicated relationships and those complications even reach to our smartphones as on the one hand they are offering us so many useful features and functions that we enjoy using, whilst on the other hand we have developed an almost emotional attachment to them.
Now this could be construed as going that one step too far by many but if you look that the way the smartphone manufactures market their devices it becomes obvious that this attachment is all too real. Cleverly rather than just listing the technical features of their phone’s manufacturers will often highlight how their device will make them feel.
Just ask anyone who has either lost their smartphone or had it stolen how they feel. There are many mobile users that would tell you that it felt like a minor disaster to be without their phones, and many would turn back and return home from a night out to retrieve them.
In fact, phubbing or phone snubbing, the act of ignoring your partner in favour of a mobile phone is blamed for relationship failures and is up there with money and child issues for causing arguments between couples.
This might seem unreasonable but just take a look about when you next visit your favourite restaurant or wine bar. Check out how many arrive and the first thing they do is make sure that their smartphone is close to hand. See how often they glance at their screens or if in a group see who is not joining in with the conversation.
There is some thinking that we have become so attached to our smartphones as they have become part of an extended self which makes users feel a great loss if their phones are not available. Its rather like taking a pacifier off a toddler, they will become anxious and the same is argued happens to someone attached to their smartphone.
Truly, our smartphones play an important part in our lives, they enable us to browse, shop and buy for goods and services as well as source entertainments like live play at online casinos where amazingly, you can now join in with live casino games, played in real time and broadcasted from a real bricks and mortar venue with real-life dealers and croupiers.
Who would have thought ten years or so ago that it would be possible to sit yourself at a table and enjoy a live game of blackjack whenever and wherever you want right from your mobile phone?
It’s no wonder then our love affair with our mobile devices continues, and currently there is no sign of that slowing down.
