Thought from a Boring Meeting
When i'm frustrated or bored while on one of the many, many virtual meetings I have to attend for my job, I find the temptation to use my iPhone almost irresistible. I suspect this is because using my iPhone lets me assume control of my situation and choose the data that I want to see rather then being dependent upon the boring presentation on my computer screen. In other words, iPhone = control, while Meeting = confusion/boredom. It's a dangerous situation, and one I attempt to nullify by putting my phone away in my bag.
