The group suggests Apple could start tracking phone usage and provide reports to users how much time they spend on addictive services. More fine-grained control of app notifications are also requested, along with an option to go into a reduced distraction mode that limits interaction with an iPhone to essential tasks, including calls, texts, and photography.
Sounds similar like the people blaming the tobacco industry for giving them lung cancer. #itsyourownresponsibility
These Stanford "students" needs to be expelled from Stanford since they're showing that they have very low IQs.They are the epitome of the definition of the word Snowflake.Their parents have forgotten them a long time ago.
I can only laugh. You cannot make up this stuff.
All this can be seen as highly complimentary and great oppty for Apple, singling them out as the only tech goliath who might actually care and be able to do something about a wide problem. I hope Apple capitalizes on it, both publicly and more importantly by offering more and better options to winnow incoming data. The fact that it’s into Stanford computer science on campus also makes it worthy of serious attention. If Apple is open and responsive, new talent more likely to choose them over Google, FB, etc.
Info overload will only going grow more prominent with wearables and ambient computing. Human/Machine interfaces should not stress out the flesh, as individuals or society. We’ve a long way to go.
FWIW I use my Watch, often in Theatre Mode, as a way to lessen iPhone use. Haptic on watch, for instance, is less irritating than audible or vibrate for incoming calls on phone.
Sell it to Gazelle. Get a Motorola StarTAC. Addiction gone.
Make your phone less addictive now: (1) watch your phone usage, (2) turn off notifications and (3) turn your display to grayscale to minimize dopamine hits
I think I’m addicted to life. Should I wear monochromatic eyeglasses to reduce dopamine hits from that?
