The other day, I spent several frantic moments searching the entire house for my phone. I eventually found it on the arm of a chair I’d been sitting in just minutes earlier. Whew, what a relief!

Why does even briefly misplacing our phones cause such a feeling of panic? The answer can be found in how much time we spend on our phones. This device has gone from a simple communication tool to a lifeline and a do-it-all piece of equipment.
