Bored, I'll Just Go on My iPhone!

The invention of mobile devices such as cell phones like iPhones and Blackberries have seemingly attempted to never allow its users to get bored. As Levinson points out, getting stuck in an elevator may not be as bad as long as our iPhone or Blackberry is present. We can surf the web or chat with friends, which can help us cope with the boredom experienced with being in an elevator that is stuck. Whenever we travel, we never have to be bored walking or on the bus as we just take out our iPhones and check social networking sites or websites of interest. As Levinson mentions, mobile media allows us to get any kind of information anytime, anywhere. Personally, it can be particularly helpful when I'm checking the scores in the MLB, NFL, and NBA. With vast improvements on the way, iPhone batteries and services will continue to expand allowing its users even more opportunities to surf the web. We never have to be bored again, as long as we have our iPhones alongside us.


  1. I don't own an Iphone or Blackberry, but that seems to be the way to go. They offer endless entertainment in the palm of your hand as long as you get signal. It's very helpful.

  2. I don't own one either but it's fun to annoy my friends asking for scores g the games, usually they will reluctantly comply.

  3. Enhanced productivity and entertainment at the cost of peace and quiet, and concentration.
