RESEARCHERS HAVE LOOKED INTO
SMART PHONES, AND WHETHER OR NOT

THEY HAVE A NEGATIVE IMPACT ON
PEOPLE'S RELATIONSHIPS.

THE TODAY SHOW
TALKED ABOUT THIS RECENTLY.

"PHUBBING IS IN FACT RUINING
RELATIONSHIPS.

COUPLES WHO PHUB
THE MOST HAVE THE MOST
UNHEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS."

WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK?
I THINK IT IS TERRIBLE.
IT IS SO RUDE.
SHORT ATTENTION SPAN
PEOPLE DO THAT.

THE APPLE WATCH MAKES THIS EASIER.
YOU KEEP CHECKING YOUR WATCH
AND PEOPLE SAY, I GUESS I

AM BORING YOU.
ALL IT MEANS IS THAT YOU
ARE WITH YOUR SIGNIFICANT

OTHER, AND WHILE THEY ARE
TALKING TO YOU, YOU ARE JUST

CONSTANTLY LOOKING AT
YOUR PHONE.

OR YOU ARE CHECKING OUT WHAT IS
HAPPENING ON SOCIAL MEDIA.

YOU SHOULD NOT DO THAT WHEN
PEOPLE ARE TALKING TO YOU.

THE
FLIPSIDE IS THAT YOU ARE ALREADY
DOING IT SOMETIMES WHEN PEOPLE

START THE CONVERSATION.
IF I'M
ON MY PHONE AND MY WIFE COMES

IN, AM I DUTY-BOUND TO DROP IT
INSTANTLY?
I THINK I HAVE
FORTY-FIVE SECONDS.

I THINK YOU CAN
FINISH YOUR THOUGHT.

DON'T START A SECOND THOUGHT.
HAVE YOU GUYS EVER GOTTEN
INTO AN ARGUMENT AS THE

RESULT OF BEING ON YOUR PHONE?
I AM A MAN, AND I AM MARRIED, SO OF
COURSE THAT HAS HAPPENED.

SHE DOES IT TO ME
MORE THAN I DO IT TO HER.

I DO THE GUY THING OF LIKE,
UH-HUH, YEAH.

SHE DOES NOT EVEN
HEAR WHEN SHE IS ON HER PHONE.

MINE DOES THAT TOO.
I GO TO THE TOTALLY RUDE
MACHINATION, BUT SHE IS SILENT.

YOU ARE NOT LISTENING, BUT AT
LEAST YOU ARE RESPONDING.

I HAVE THE COURTESY TO BE
INAUTHENTIC.

SHE DOES NOT HEAR
ME AT ALL.
WE HAVE SORT OF GOT
IT, SHE KNOWS ñ AND I TRY NOT TO

ñ I USE IT LESS, I AM AWARE THAT
IT IS RUDE.

SHE WOULD SAY THAT
I USE IT TOO MUCH, AND SHE IS
RIGHT, BUT I LIVE IN THE

INFORMATION AGE.
I DON'T WEAR A WATCH, SO MY
EXCUSE IS THAT I AM JUST

CHECKING THE TIME.
WHEN SHE WALKS
IN THE ROOM I WILL PUT IT

DOWN, BUT I AM AFRAID THAT WE
HAVE REACHED THE POINT THAT

SHE WILL SAY, WHAT
WERE YOU DOING?

NO, YOU SHOULD FINISH
YOUR THOUGHT.

I DON'T THINK ANYONE IS GOING TO
FREAK OUT IF YOU WERE ON

YOUR PHONE AND THEY STARTED
TALKING TO YOU AFTER THAT.

WE HAVE HAD SERIOUS TALKS ABOUT
THE PHONE AND PHONE ETIQUETTE.

I DON'T WANT TO MAKE HER
FEEL LIKE SHE IS NOT AS

IMPORTANT AS WHAT I AM DOING.
SHE IS OBVIOUSLY THE SAME.
WHEN YOU GO OUT FOR A
DRIVE IN THE CAR, DOES SHE

IMMEDIATELY ASSUME THAT YOU ARE
THE CHAUFFEUR AND IT IS

TIME FOR HER TO ñ
ABSOLUTELY.
TOTALLY.
NOT ACKNOWLEDGING THAT YOU
ARE GOING SOMEPLACE TOGETHER?

TOTALLY, AND IT IRRITATES ME.
BUT I HAVE NO STANDING, BECAUSE
WHEN I'M IN THE HOUSE I AM

ON MY PHONE.
WHAT IS SHE DOING IN THE
HOUSE?

IS SHE MOVING THE HOUSE
FROM ONE PLACE TO ANOTHER?
IS
THAT SUPPOSED TO BE ALONE TIME?
I DID NOT REALIZE THIS
WOULD BE SUCH AN INTERESTING

CONVERSATION.
THE PHONE THING DRIVES ME CRAZY.
I DON'T WANT A RULE THAT SAYS
YOU CANNOT HAVE IT WHEN WE ARE

TOGETHER, BUT IT SHOULD BE A
LITTLE LESS.

WHAT I TRY TO DO
IS, IF I AM READING AN ARTICLE
THAT I FIND INTERESTING IN ANY

WAY, I GO OUT OF MY WAY TO SHARE
IT WITH HER.

HEY, LOOK AT THIS,
LOOK WHAT THIS GUY SAID ON
TWITTER.

SO AT LEAST WE ARE
ENGAGED AND TALKING
ABOUT THE SAME THING.

I THINK THAT IS THE KEY TO
IT.

SOMETIMES WHEN WE ARE
DISTRACTED BY TECHNOLOGY IT IS
HARD TO BE ENGAGED.

I DID IT
LAST NIGHT, WE WERE TALKING
ABOUT SOMETHING AND I DON'T KNOW

HOW IT HAPPENED BUT I GOT
DISTRACTED BY MY PHONE.
INSTAGRAM IS A BLACK HOLE FOR
ME, I GET SUCKED IN.
I WILL BE
ON THERE FOR HOURS.
I LOVE
IT, I AM OBSESSED WITH IT.

HE STARTED TALKING TO ME ABOUT
SOMETHING AS I WAS LOOKING

AT PICTURES, AND I DID NOT CATCH
ANYTHING HE SAID, AND THEN

HE QUIZZED ME ON IT.
I WAS CAUGHT.
IT WAS EMBARRASSING.
WAS IT IMPORTANT STUFF?
NO, WE WERE HAVING A CASUAL
CONVERSATION ABOUT SOMETHING.

WERE YOU ACKNOWLEDGING HIM
AS HE WAS SPEAKING?

NOT AT ALL, I WAS
TOTALLY ZONED OUT.

BUT HE IS REALLY GOOD ABOUT IT.
WE HAVE AN UNSPOKEN RULE
ABOUT THE PHONE.

VERY RARELY ARE WE BOTH ON OUR
PHONES, OR EITHER ONE OF US

IS ON OUR PHONES WHEN
WE ARE TOGETHER.

THAT IS A LITTLE BIT, ESPECIALLY
WHEN WE SAY WE HAVE WORK TO

DO AND WE ARE DOING WORK, THEN
WE'LL BE ON OUR TECHNOLOGY

AND DO WHATEVER WE WANT.
BUT FOR THE MOST PART WE TRY TO
ENGAGE WITH EACH OTHER.

IN THE PRODUCTION MEETING IT IS
A TOTALLY DIFFERENT STORY,

EVERYBODY IS LIKE
IN THE PRODUCTION MEETING.

AND I WOULD LIKE TO STOP THAT.
IT WOULD BENEFIT THE SHOW,
AND WHEN I AM IN IT I AM SURE I

DO THE SAME THING AS EVERYONE
ELSE, BUT IT WOULD BENEFIT TO

SAY PHONES DOWN.
