Top 5 most annoying problems caused by tech
Technology has solved a lot of life's little problems, but it's created some new ones.
These are the top five most annoying problems caused by tech.
[SOUND] At number five, The Phantom Buzz.
You feel that twinge in your leg and you check your pants pocket, your phone doesn't display any information on the lock screen.
You dig deeper and you check if there are any notifications Nothing.
You put it back in your pocket, then buzz.
You don't belive it.
At number four, tablet face.
That's getting smacked while reading in bed.
You're reading a story on your phone, e-reader, or tablet, and all of a sudden physics fails.
Either your hands failed or somehow your gadget changed form and begins hurtling towards your head.
Face meet glass.
And yes, the same problem does exists with books.
At number three, the movie phone checker.
Tech also has its weird ability to change people.
Let's say you're trying to watch a magical wizard boy take on evil magic man in the movies.
You're trying to get engrossed into the story and then out of the corner of your eye a six inch screen glowing Staring at an illuminated movie goer never makes anything better.
At number 2, Fear of Missing Out or FOMO.
Back before the days of the internet if somebody cancelled with you, you probably wouldn't know what they did otherwise.
Nowadays, your friends can either post a photo or status to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or even check in on Torn.
You can see the lives people are living even though we all know, on-line versions of people are usually distortions and it could still cause the dreaded FOMO.
And at number 1, The dexter Zombie Walk.
All you wanna do is get from point A to point B. Then you spot someone in front of you.
Arms close to the body, head slightly down and then there's that distinct zombie like shuffle.
Clearly, this person is messing about on their phone.
You can't shove them out of the way.
You're doomed to be behind this person until you see daylight.
Wait, hang on my phone is buzzing.
I'm Matt Ayers.
