Kind of an oxymoron, right? Could a “smart phone” make you not so smart? That was the finding in a study done by the McCombs School of Business at The University of Texas at Austin. The study basically found that smartphones were such a distraction, they ended up making us look dumb. We basically already knew this, right? That phones, for all they do, distract us from the matter at hand. But note that this study seemed to indicate that the phone distracted us even when we weren’t getting notifications.
