Fathers and multitasking. I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. Mobile devices have changed our lives a great deal…and not always for the better. The software firm MobileIron conducted an international survey not long ago that found men with children at home have fewer boundaries between their work and personal lives than women do. One third acknowledge using mobile devices for work while eating with friends or family, more than a quarter admit to using the devices for work while driving…and more than half…while using the bathroom. MobileIron VP or Strategy Ojas Rege…
“Fifty six percent of young men use their phone for work while in the bathroom. So if it’s the guy in the cubicle next to you lends you his iPhone, I think you just have to say no.”
Maybe a good Father’s Day gift would be a gadget called PhoneSoap, a charging station with a built in sanitizing UV light. There’s more at PhoneSoap.com. You can find us at BootCamp.com. I’m Fred Fishkin.
