Smartphones – Does this ever happen to you?

Smartphones – Does this ever happen to you?

Picture the scene, you are at the dinner table and someone is constantly watching their phone and then makes an excuse (or not) to reply to a text message, a whatsapp post, a Facebook post or a Twitter message.

I mean, has this ever happened to you?

How do you feel about this?

Would you like to check your addiction to your smartphone?

In this mini series on the use of mobile phones, we are going to take you though a quiz to see just how dependent you are to your smartphone, or indeed those around you.

We will then ask some of you (if you are willing to take part) to download a free app to monitor your smartphone usage and then we will publish the results and we will podcast some of you (again, if you are willing to take part).

Here is what it looks like in (almost) real life..

The 70th annual Cannes Film Festival is currently taking place from 17 to 28 May 2017, in Cannes, France.

Spanish film director and screenwriter Pedro Almodóvar has been selected as the President of the Jury for the festival with Italian actress Monica Bellucci hosting the opening and closing ceremonies.

Ismael’s Ghosts, directed by French director Arnaud Desplechin, has been selected as the opening film for the festival.

The festival will be celebrating its 70th anniversary.

In late March 2017, the official poster of the festival was revealed featuring Italian actress Claudia Cardinale.

The actress responded, “‘I am honoured and proud to be flying the flag for the 70th Festival de Cannes, and delighted with this choice of photo. It’s the image I myself have of the Festival, of an event that illuminates everything around … Happy anniversary!”
