Study Reveals Britons Spend More Time On Tech Than Sleeping

A recent study by a UK Communications regulator reflects an excessive use of technology that disrupts our normal life.

Research by Ofcom reveals that UK adults spend an average of eight hours and 41 minutes a day on media devices, compared with the average night’s sleep of eight hours and 21 minutes.

Among those surveyed, more alarming are the habits of 16-24 years old who squeezed 9 hours 8 minutes each day by multi-tasking and using different media and devices at the same time.

For the first time since 2009, TV viewing has fallen to under 4 hours per day and people have turned to tablets and smartphones.

On a positive note however, the report suggests that children were  found to have an advanced understanding of technology devices, with six-year-olds having the same level of knowledge as the average 45-year-old.

How to Untag Yourself in a Facebook Photo From Your Mobile Phone

Have you ever been tagged by a not so close friend in a non-sense Facebook picture or photo?

Well, I was recently and what’s annoying about it is that you are in no way interested or cannot relate or at least makes no sense, because you are not in that photo or it has nothing to do with you and that photo get’s a lot of comments and updates, every single second for the next couple of days.

This is one way of spamming Facebook to get attention and when you try to look of a way to untag yourself using the mobile application because that’s what you use all the time rather than your laptop or desktop, there is just no way to do it.

How to Upgrade to iOS 7

Barely 5 days to go before Apple’s IOS7 will be launch in the market, people already find ways and sites to download and install the final version of the software even if you’re not a developer. Thanks to the never ending support like from “someone” that posted publicly the updated files.

A lot of people already updated their devices including me, and was able to encounter no issue at all. But because we cannot monitor all those who upgraded, thus we cannot tell if there was any problem encountered.

This is the same version that will be release next week, so it should work for you as well. So it’s up to you if you want to wait till next week or if you can’t wait for it. Please take note also that if you decided to upgrade now, you have to understand that there is always a chance the something might get wrong or you might run into an issues. Please be aware of the risk when upgrading you IOS.
