Is your smartphone your possession – or your obsession?
by Jack Wedam
About the author
Jack Wedam has written two books calling out tech companies-Google Glass Can Read Your Mind (2014) and Cunningly Smart Phones: Deceit, Manipulation, and Private Thoughts Revealed (2015). While many journalists and writers were lavishing praise upon tech companies and tech billionaires, Jack Wedam was calling them out. It was not good for book sales. However, it was a wonderful opportunity to establish credibility.
The author goes even further in this book to exposes the dark ugly side of smartphone addiction, social media addiction, video game addiction, and how the unscrupulous can brainwash “influence” people “towards a desired outcome.” (Spoiler alert-US Patent 8,095,492 )
About the book
Smartphone addiction is now obvious to almost everyone. Just a few years ago, everyone was in love with the new tech toys and social media. Saying anything bad about Google, Google Glass, Facebook, or smartphone was like telling someone that their baby was ugly. Now many are questioning their relationship with their smartphones, hence the title of this book.
Have some been pulled into a silent invisible electronic vortex that results in an altered state of mind? How did we get into this mess? Do you think the Central Intelligence Agency might somehow be involved with this mess? Wink.
Learn how smartphone addiction and social media addiction activates the same pleasure/reward pathway in the brain as cocaine. Can new technologies allow the unscrupulous to covertly addict and brainwash “influence” the innocent and unsuspecting? Is this just hyperbole? Be open-minded and examine the evidence—then decide for yourself.
If you are a smartphone addict, a social media addict—or know someone that is—you should mindfully consider reading this book. This book can help you as well as those you care about and love.
Now you need to decide—do you want a red pill or a blue pill?
