    Like it's really bad, I spend a large amount of my free time stuck to this phone. Tell me I'm not the only one becoming a complete addict...lol

    Lol I'm a first time iPhone owner and...I don't know how I feel about these things! I now laugh and agree at how true the satire allusion to Apple is in GTA 5. The company is called Life Invader lmao.

    No more than any other phone I've had. I love the larger screen but it has not impacted the usage of my iPad at all, it's not that big. I certainly use it a ton but the larger screen has not made me use it anymore than my 5.

    It's a device that allows you to escape whatever you're trying to do. Work, planning, study, setting goals, making small talk, doing thoughtful thinking, facing reality. It's a procrastination enabler. ;)

    This is painfully true. LOL

    That said, the 6 doesn't occupy any more of my time than its three iPhone predecessors did, nor more than my iPad does. It's a great phone, but it's not dramatically better to me.

    Either that, or I've become jaded. :p

    I've had every model of iPhone since day 1 except the 5C, I spend close to twice the amount of time on my 6+ than any other.:eek:

    After the newness wears off, I found myself using my 6 and 6+ the same as my 5S. Just a tool to run my company, but a nice tool to say the least. As far as spending hours on it, there is just no way, too much to get done with less time to do it.

    Still use my iPad Air 2 for crusing the Internet in the Lazyboy as even the 6+ has a small screen in comparison.:apple:

    It's not just that new iPhone 6 and its shiny Apple logo...it is the combination of any new tech device and lack of better judgement for what we should be doing (not trying to degrade anyone or anything...even I admit that I use my 5C too much)

    I do find it sad that almost anywhere I look, all I see is people on their mobile devices.

    Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.

    People now for some reason feel the need to tell all of their "followers" or "friends" about whatever they are doing, but don't talk to their real friends, the real ones they should be interacting with. Don't get me wrong - social media and the like can be a useful tool when used in moderation, but when people are constantly updating people online about things they are doing, it has gone too far.

    I am always amazed how people became so addicted to their mobile devices. Not just the young but it cuts though all age groups. Just walking through the mall 3 out of 10 people are using their phones. Many who are not using are holding their device in their hands while walking.

    It has changed our society without a doubt!

    Life Invader is actually a joke that makes fun of Facebook. Ifruit is their name for the iPhone.

    :D

    This is very true. I myself can say I am guilty of those things. My girlfriend gets annoyed that I use my phone so much even when walking in the mall. Smartphones have changed the way we live very drastically.

    For me my iPhone is a luxury, not a necessity. It does make my life more convenient in may ways.

    Having a 22 month old son I find myself often taking pictures to post on FB or instagram, rather than just being in the moment with him. This kid will probably have 5 times as many pictures of him than I had of me when I was growing up. Just this past weekend we took him to a fun center to run around and play. Just about every parent there was calling their kids name to try and get them to look at their phone to get that "perfect" picture. After seeing that I opted to not use my phone the entire time we were there. When I get home from work in the evenings I try not to be on my phone so that I can engage my son in play.

    Many times I've considered going back to a flip phone because I know I spend way too much time on my phone (not to mention it would save $$ as well).

    probably a cultural difference or something but my sister warned me like half a year before she even gave birth that if she ever finds a picture of her child on social media that she would never talk to me again lol she literally threatened me. the people i do know who post baby pics on social media usually hide the faces
