    Please tell me you don't sleep with your smartphone

    "NEW YORK (AP) -- You gave it a pet name. It knows more about you than your mother does. Sometimes you even sleep with it. In fact, you're so attached to it that being separated for only a few minutes could send you into a panic.

    While smartphone users worry about mobile hacking and other security threats that are making news these days, psychologists and others are concerned about another equally troubling issue: the growing obsession among people who would much rather interact with their smartphones than with other human beings.

    "Watching people who get their first smartphone, there's a very quick progression from having a basic phone you don't talk about to people who love their iPhone, name their phone and buy their phones outfits," said Lisa Merlo, director of psychotherapy training at the University of Florida."

    Well, I don't sleep "with" it. But it does reside beside my bed when I do sleep. And, yes, usually it does sleep when I sleep. Sometime during the night it turns itself off and I wake up to a dead phone in the morning. Thanks Palm Pre, you're always there when I need you to sound the alarm I set for 6:15 AM.

    I make sure my phone is far away from me when I sleep. Radiation, you know. I have a Sony Dash to keep me entertained when I am in bed.
    Touchscreens are a fad.

    Anything with a display that I can carry on my person resides on my bedside table while I sleep. Occasionally in bed with me if I'm just plain wrecked, but it always ends up either on the floor next to my bed (which is irritating in the morning), or behind my bed (which requires a bit of manual labor to retrieve).
    Let me show you what cynicism looks like.

    That's just plain gross.
    Manual labor implies I'm not enjoying myself.
