how attached are you to your smartphone?

iPhone 4

Wait, what? AllTwitter:

79% Of People 18-44 Have Their Smartphones With Them 22 Hours A Day [STUDY]

Quick: what’s the first thing you do when you wake up?

Yawn? Hit the snooze button? Go to the bathroom? Brush your teeth?

If you’re like 80% of 18-44-year-olds, the answer is “check my smartphone.”

But… the snooze button is on my smartphone.

Most mysterious: What’s this “22 hours a day” thing? What about the other two hours? I mean, either the survey doesn’t count hours slept, in which case it would be something like “16 hours a day,” or else it does count hours slept and smartphone users are getting only two hours of sleep per night, which would seem to be the biggest story.

I supposed I could check the actual study AllTwitter linked to, but I’m too lazy. And also I’m complaining about the headline, which should be more obvious and clearer.
