Getting in Bed with Gadgets - The psychology behind why we feel so addicted to our gadgets

Getting in Bed with Gadgets - The psychology behind why we feel so addicted to our gadgets | ten Hagen on Social Media | Scoop.it

There’s no question that in recent years, regular smartphone, tablet, and other gadget users have developed a strong bond with their technology.

 

More and more people find themselves riddled with separation anxiety if they leave their phone at home, or even if it’s in a different room. For many gadget users, a popular time to get really plugged in to technology is in the downtime right before bed—in fact, more and more people will say that they can’t sleep without spending time reading a tablet, browsing the web, or watching Netflix.

 

But this particular time for gadget addiction, right before going to sleep, can be more harmful than helpful to good rest. New studies show that not only are most people sleeping with their smartphones in the bed with them, they’re also struggling to sleep well, even if they don’t realize it. Not only does the light from your gadgets suppress sleep-inducing melatonin, there’s a good chance that you’ve been woken up by a call or text message in the middle of the night recently. In fact, many people say that if they happen to awake in the middle of the night, the natural reaction is to reach for their phone.

 

The psychology behind why we feel so addicted to our gadgets is a field that is just now burgeoning, and for the future health of technology users everywhere, it’s probably worth looking into.

A Crypto Currency Backed By Gold? How Retail Gold Investors Can Benefit From Bitcoin's Technology

A Crypto Currency Backed By Gold? How Retail Gold Investors Can Benefit From Bitcoin's Technology | ten Hagen on Social Media | Scoop.it

The bitcoin system is widely acknowledged as the most successful attempt yet to create a digital currency operating outside of, and therefore bypassing the fees of, the traditional banking system. Additionally, the limited supply of bitcoins is an excellent feature that differentiates it from fiat currencies, sparing it the vagaries of inflation and deflation caused by government manipulation of the money supply.

De ICT-drama's bij de overheid: níemand wordt afgerekend op falen | ten Hagen on Social Media | Scoop.it
De overheid en ICT-projecten vormen een slecht huwelijk waarin jaarlijks miljarden worden verspild. Maar van een afrekencultuur is totaal geen sprake.
Laurens ten Hagen's insight:

Een parlementaire commissie naar falende ICT-projecten is geen overbodige luxe. Hoogleraar beleidsinformatica Hans Mulder van de Universiteit Antwerpen gooide eind april tijdens de eerste hoorzitting van de tijdelijke commissie ICT projecten nog (ruwe) olie op het vuur door aan te geven dat de overheid jaarlijks vier à vijf miljard euro verliest aan mislukte ICT-projecten en dat eenderde van de grote projecten op een dusdanige manier mislukken dat het systeem nooit in gebruik wordt genomen.

Big data used to be viewed as something far removed from content marketing. Brands can take their content marketing efforts to new heights with big data.

Russia's internet regulator has threatened to block Twitter, in the most detailed warning on the options Moscow is considering in its efforts to tighten restrictions over the internet.

 

"We can block Twitter or Facebook in Russia tomorrow within a few minutes," Maksim Ksenzov, deputy head of Roskomnadzor, the telecom, IT and communications supervisory agency, said in an interview published by daily newspaper Izvestia on Friday.

 

"If at any point we believe that the consequences of 'switching off' social networks will be less significant than the damage done to Russian society by the unconstructive position of the leadership of international companies, we will do what we have to under the law," he added.

A Digital Time Capsule: Google Maps Now Lets You Travel Back in Time

A Digital Time Capsule: Google Maps Now Lets You Travel Back in Time | ten Hagen on Social Media | Scoop.it

Google Maps has long given us a quick and easy way to explore the world without the hassle or costs of travel. Now, Google Maps lets you travel back in time at some of your favorite virtual vacation spots.

Laurens ten Hagen's insight:

 

Google announced today, April 23, that Google Maps Street View for desktops will now allow users to travel back in time seven years and view places on the map from 2007 to the present. By clicking on the clock icon in the upper left-hand portion of a Street View image, you can move the slider through time and select a thumbnail to view the place as it was years ago.

 

With this time travel function, you will be able to see the rise and fall of infrastructure, landmarks and the landscape of different places. For instance, users can see the construction of the Freedom Tower inNew York City and the 2014 World Cup Stadium in Fortaleza, Brazil. Or users can view Japan’s road to restoration in Onagawa through images from before and after the 2011 earthquake and tsunami. You can also use the Google Maps’ time travel function for less historic travel, like simply enjoying the different seasons in a new or foreign place.

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange gave a rare talk via video at annual tech mega-conference SXSW.

Laurens ten Hagen's insight:

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange gave a rare talk via video at annual tech mega-conference SXSW, where he came out swinging not only at President Obama but also Google and Facebook. Assange claimed that in the Obama administration, the intelligence agencies “wear the pants” and he called out Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg as part of “an unprecedented theft of wealth.”

Since the global uproar over the National Security Agency’s spying practices were exposed last summer, there have been no major shakeups, Assange claimed. When a government wants actual reform, “someone is fired, someone is forced to resign, someone is prosecuted,” he argued.
