How do we use smartphones? Let us count the ways…

Rich Brooks on TV talking about smartphone usage

How did we even survive before smartphones?!?

I was meeting with the 207 producer at a local coffee shop to plan out our next few episodes. Because of a previous meeting, I was driving there and I grabbed a parking spot right outside! Unfortunately, it came with a coin-fed meter, and I had no coins!

Then I noticed the sticker that said I could pay with an app. I downloaded the app, paid the fee, and made my appointment.

That experience led to a discussion about all the ways we now use our phones, and we decided that would be a topic worth investigating. A callout to my friends on Facebook and I had a plethora of creative ways people were using their phones.

Check out the episode below and watch to the end for a little experiment I'll be running between 207 episodes!
