A recent study found that the average iPhone user touches his or her phone 2,617 times a day. Each user is on his or her phone for two and a half hours over seventy-six sessions. And that’s for all smartphone users. Another study on millennials put the number at twice that. In every study I read, most people surveyed had no clue how much time they actually lost to their phones.
I was really excited when I got Siri on my iphone. If you are an iPhone user, let me explain. Siri enables you to speak questions into your pjone and hear your phone speak back an answer. One of the first questions I asked was “What is the meaning of life?” and Siri sidestepped the question by telling me, “It is a film by Monty Python.” Undeterred I repeated the question and a got a differen answer: “Try to be nice to people, avoide eating fat, read a good book every now and them, get some walking in and try to live in peace and harmony with people of all creeds and nations.” That left me with a question even Siri cannot answer. If my phone knows how to behave itself ina multi faith society, then why is Jesus so offensve when he talks about different religions?
