I have made a small stand in the toilet where I keep my phone. That's because I can't spend a moment away from it. I do this because I feel that the phone is a private thing. I cannot keep it lying around at home — you never know who gets into your history and ...

Can you say "separation anxiety"? The term nomophobia was coined a few years ago --an awkward mash-up of no - mobile - phobia --to describe that altogether modern surge of anxiety that comes when you can't, for whatever reason and however long, use your preferred mobile device. It is not the most elegant term. To language purists, nomophobia comes off as "dreadful faux-Greek." To baseball fans ...

I’m a bit compulsive when it comes to my phone’s battery life. Since I don’t own a camera or an iPod, I rely on my smartphone pretty much 24/7. When the battery drops down to 50%, I’m a wreck. Judging by my battery OCD, you would think that I have no trouble remembering to charge [...] The post With JUMP Cable, You Can Now Charge Your Smartphone and Tablet On The Go! appeared first on Vulcan Post.

Nomophobia - The fear of being out of mobile phone contact

The term, an abbreviation for "no-mobile-phone phobia", was coined during a study by the UK Post Office who commissioned YouGov, a UK-based research organisation to look at anxieties suffered by mobile phone users. The study found that nearly 53 percent of mobile phone users in Britain tend to be anxious when they "lose their mobile phone, run out of battery or credit, or have no network coverage". The study found that about 58 percent of men and 48 percent of women suffer from the phobia, and an additional 9 percent feel stressed when their mobile phones are off.

With this photo i tried to create a sense of isolation so it would be more fitting to the phobia. 'Fear of loss of mobile phone contact' I think this image succeeds in showing the phobia because it is clear the phone is broken and unable to use.
