Dumbest Article Ever

A year's worth of research: http://www.cnn.com/2010/TECH/mobile/08/25/nielsen.phone.use/index.html?hpt=T2 . . . really? Women more than men? Blacks and Hispanic more than whites? Teens do the most texting? What indepth info! It took a year for them to arrive at this information? I'd love to know how many staff members they had on this project and what the total funding amounted to. I'm not a scientist, nor am I an investigative journalist, but I truly think I could have come up with this same information in much less time than a year. Now, I wouldn't have had the racial differences down to the minutes, but is there anyone that doesn't know women are on the phone more than men? Is there anyone that hasn't watched a woman with a cell phone in one hand, a cigarette in the other, and wondered how she was driving her SUV? Men don't multi-task when it involves the phone, so if they are going to be participating in anything else, they have to get off the phone. This took research, really? Now, as to teens doing the most texting. Are you not simply dazzled by the brilliance of this research? Who has the audacity to print this like it's actually news! Apparently that answer would be www.cnn.com. Well, what a lovely piece of journalism. I know we can all rest, knowing, the research has been done and is now stated, fact.
O ye simple, understand wisdom: and, ye fools, be ye of an understanding heart. a Proverb of Holy Scripture
