    Not for nothing, but they're right.
    Also the title of this thread is a bit clicky-baity, the cnn article states: 7 ways the iPhone has made life worse, not that the iPhone made our life worse. Perhaps I'm splitting hairs but I can see the downsides but there are also upsides.

    I hate them all!

    That's it, I'm switching to Android!

    CNN reputation is gone, so they have to go the Forbes/Buzzfeed way.

    CNN are bitter because due to iPhone we can all get real news info rather than the info they feed ;) They have lost control and they hate it.

    1. Of course this article is for smartphones, but iPhones makes for a catchier title.
