Can you guess how many texts your typical teen sends? Or how many cell phones are in the world? Take our challenge and see if you can pass without calling for help.
Many kids can't even conceive of a world without them. Nearly 230 million people in America alone have these phones.
Yes, that's in trillions. And that's about the equivalent to a year's worth of stuff sent via snail mail.
And yet, their fingers are somehow to tired to pick up pencils to complete homework.
Ask anyone in the room what time it is. Almost no one will have a watch, but they will check their cell phones.
But those phones don't mean we're necessarily smarter. A lot of people blow too much money on smartphones and don't really use the "smart" features.
They're actually tied for first place. Texting and camera functions are wildly popular.
Email is so old school. Nearly three-quarters of users often use text messages.
Roughly 4 out of 10 users employ their phones for email purposes. Maybe email isn't quite dead…yet.
And 75 percent of those phones allow text messages. No wonder texting is so popular.
As the kids would say, the other half are way, way behind the times. The other half might have things figured out… just a little, though.
Nearly a quarter of all phones qualify as smartphones. Already, half of local Web searches happen on phones.
But it's probably only because slow bandwidth hold back the rest. Around one-quarter of users watch video content.
Overloaded on gadgets yet? Nearly 90 percent of users couldn’t leave their phones alone and just watch television.
It's only about three hours. But some people report feelings of depression and loneliness when deprived of their phones.
It's not quite half…yet. But the other folks will soon be playing games and having fun on their phones, too.
Forget making single phone calls. Cell phones now help you connect with entire groups of people at once.
They trust the system because they grew up with it. Nearly one-third of them feel safe performing banking functions on a mobile.
So grandma is living in the dark ages. She still accesses Facebook only on her netbook.
The Web is a sticky thing indeed. People remain connected even when they're on the run.
Computers are still the primary choice. But mobile devices are catching up in a hurry.
