Smart phone thumb
    #741076 - 07/23/14 07:49 PM (2 years, 4 months ago)

Do you get smart phone thumb?

I get a huge round piece of dead skin on my thumb.

I'm biting it off right now. :flaming:

:freshwtf:

Dude lighten up on the pressure...capacitive touchscreens don't need a lot of pressure to locate where you are touching.

And if you aren't bearing down much...then you might spend too much time on the smartphone.

Of course I'm one to talk...I have become pretty reliant on mine as well :shrug:

I really don't use it too often. I wouldn't say I really bear down on it, either.

I think it's simply from my thumb hitting the screen all of the time.

It doesn't look too crazy, just a rough patch of skin on my thumb.

Honestly, I'm surprised this hasn't happened to someone else.

Yup, pretty much. :lol:

Hmm... Maybe. I don't use it on the way to work at all. I'll only use it in the
morning to send and receive texts. I never spend extended periods of time on it.
I'll only do that rarely and randomly, usually when I'm off of work.

My skin probably is sensitive, but it doesn't seem that weird to me because it makes sense with all of the swiping and tapping and whatnot.

I'm trying to make sense of this drivel, but can't.
Can someone help me decipher it?
Might need someone like minded to help; any mentally challenged members around?

:highfive:

Word. Fuck a smart phone. It's bad enough I spend time looking at this garbage when I'm at home, I don't need to be doing it in public.


Does anyone else agree with me that people and life in general was(were) a lot cooler back before all this techno shit? People used to have character.

I'm sick of hearing from the anti technology crowd.
My phone is the shit and has made my life better.
There's nothing wrong with new technology, it's all in the way you use it.

I am the anti tech crowd...Roar.:sexymeow:

I agree with you. I really have no problem with technology, I just wish people would actually take their nose out of their phones when they try to have a conversation.
The phones probably save a business owner and its employees a ton of money.
I see the positives, but like Myco said, people were a lot more interesting before they depended on "Facespace" to tell the world who they are as an individual.

Technology isn't the problem, its the obsession that people have with it. I mean seriously I have been around some chicks that can be in a deep sleep and then wake up out of nowhere if their phone is moved. WTF?

Don't get me wrong, I don't like everything that's around nowadays.

The term 'selfie' annoys me. It's a self-portrait, why coin such an unneeded, gay term for it. :flaming:

Facebook and all other social media blow. :thumbdown:

It's great if you're a narcissist or want to post lame shit like "fml."
Who. gives. a. fuck. I mean, really. Like I need drama on the cyberweb, too.
Thanks, but no thanks.

If you've got your nose in your phone and almost get hit by a car crossing the street,
then yeah, you're a moron who shouldn't own a phone.

People have always been either interesting or not, and that's all really subjective anyway.

If someone is cool, them getting a phone isn't going to change that.

I just like that I can play music, browse the web, use gps, and do a bunch
of other things on my phone quickly and effortlessly.

Screw going back to mapquest :lol:

I showed a coworker my thumb and he was like wtfffff

I'd post a pic but I can't be bothered to turn off the location
tags on the photos... My phone will probably be all like
"YOU HAVE THIS TURNED OFF AND I AM HERE TO ANNOY YOU TO TURN IT BACK
ON EVERY TIME YOU USE THE CAMERA." And my point and shoot died on me.

FUCK MAPQUEST.
Wrong ass shit.

I would like to have one for music and as a camera, but I have an mp3 player and a nice, wait, noice canon camera. Plus I would hate to buy a phone and drop a G on it and then a newer better version come out like a month or two later.

I hate to admit it, but I would pay to see a few people get hit by a car cause they have their faces buried in their phone so much.

Unless you have sandpaper as a screen protector, I call spice.
