In Bed With Gadgets: Not Good – Infographic

Does this sound familiar? You’re lying in bed, ostensibly ready for dreamland. But first, you grab your smartphone and set the requisite six alarms (all of them blaring the Star Wars theme). But while you’ve got your phone out, you might as well text your buddy back like you meant to. Plus, now is the perfect time to plow through those 11 games of Gems With Friends that have been on hold. Oh, and there was that sloth video you never got around to watching on YouTube. Then, maybe it’s time for bed. But you should probably throw something on Netflix to help you pass out.

It’s a perfectly normal routine. In fact, 95% of people say they regularly browse the web, text or watch TV in the hour before bed. But all that facetime with a phone, tablet, laptop or TV does more than distract — it can make it harder to go to sleep when you finally close your eyes. That can lead to sleep loss that affects your mental and physical well-being.

Check out this infographic from OnlinePsychologyDegree.net and think it over next time you’re thinking about spooning with Siri.

Did You Know? Technology Is Depleting The Earth’s Resources – Infographic

Apple sold a record 5 million iPhones the first weekend the phone was on the market. And unlike in the iPhone’s early days, the latest Apple smartphones are not primarily being purchased by first time owners.

But did you ever stop to think about what happens to all those iPhone 3, 3GS, 4 and 4Ss now deemed out of date? While there are many recycling programs available, most smartphones are not efficiently thrown out.

Apple’s iPhones is far from the only culprit — most every smartphone, hard drive, hybrid car, satellite, MRI machine and GPS, along with dozens of other tech gadgets, are made from Rare Earth Elements.

This infographic, created by Vouchercloud takes a look at this troubling technology trend, which is depleting the planet’s supply of Rare Earth Elements.
