Examples of usage in a Sentence

  1. Nikhil Pahwa:

  4. Sandra Windham:

    Parents constantly text kids throughout the day and kids get very anxious if they are unable to answer them, the content of the texts is almost never school related, though. Even during our state testing, when strict rules go into place about phone usage, parents call the school and demand their kids get their phone back. And when I call parents to report bad behavior or grades due to phone use, the phone is rarely taken away as a consequence.

  5. Arko Ghosh:

    Most superficially what we found was that smartphone users have a brain that processes touch differently than people who don't use smartscreen touch phones, however, if you dig a bit deeper into the data what you essentially see is that the most recent usage that people accumulated on their smartphones that reflected on the way that brains processed information from their fingertips. So essentially these day-to-day fluctuations that we encounter through our daily lives they imprint on the brain on the way that it processes information from your hands.
