literature review
Literature Review

"Using GPS-Enabled Cell Phones to Track the Travel Patterns of Adolescents." – J. Fortenberry

  • Describes how GPS tracking was used to study the daily routines of a group of teenagers.

literature review1
Literature Review

"Communication Problems." – Leslie Haddon

  • In the 1990’s, over 37% of people found phone calls disruptive at some points of every day.
  • People left the phone off the hook to stop the calls.
  • In the later 1990’s, caller ID helped determine what calls to answer.
  • As cell phones grow more popular, so does the “Ignore” button.
  • Each release of new phone technology gives call receivers more control over their communication.

literature review2
Literature Review

“FDA concurs with British finding on lack of cancer link to cell phone use.”

  • In the initial years of cell phone popularity, studies showed a link between exposure to the small radiofrequency exposure emitted by cell phones and cancer.
  • The same studies were repeated in 2005, using more modern cell phones, and the same results failed to be replicated.
  • Modern device technology exposes users to

less radiofrequency radiation.

Literature Review

"Emotional Attachment and Mobile Phones." – Jane Vincent

  • “We interact with a mobile phone in a way that we do not with other devices. We fondle it, we clutch it in times of crisis, and we know that our loved ones are doing the same.”
  • Article states that some humans develop an unhealthy attachment to their phone.
  • Interactions with the opposite sex are

the largest cause of attachment.

"Text Messaging During Simulated Driving" - Joel Cooper

  • Conducted a study using a driving simulator to compare driving ability with and without texting.
  • Results of the study:
    • 0.3 second delay in braking reaction time
    • 3 meter decrease in following distance
    • 600% increase in accident rate

discussion
Discussion
  • Further benefits of text messaging
    • Delayed response time is more acceptable
    • More time to think of a ‘tactful’ response
  • Further benefits of GPS tracking
    • Police can monitor traffic flow
    • If phone is left in a stolen car or handbag, it can be traced.
    • Possible to track a crime suspect and prove they were at the crime scene.
    • Also able to track proximity of sex offenders to schools/playgrounds
