Here’s a definitive sign that Americans have taken multitasking way too far: They’re looking at their smartphones while doing it.
Nearly 20 percent of young adult smartphone owners in the U.S. between the ages of 18 and 34 use their smartphones during sex, and nearly 1 in ten U.S. adults who own smartphones use them during sex.
The survey from Harris Interactive on behalf of start-up Jumio did not ask respondents what they are “using” the phones for. Perhaps there’s something much more kinky going on here. Probably though it’s just a lot of people surreptitiously glancing at their iPhones to see if they got a text or a new comment on their Facebook post.

Less than 2% of all Android devices are running Google’s latest operating system – almost three months after it was launched.
Phone manufacturers have long been criticised for not bringing Android updates to their devices in a timely manner.
Android 4.1 Jelly Bean was unveiled in July, but is installed on 1.8% of Android devices, according to Google’s stats.
More than 55% are still running Android 2.3 Gingerbread, just under two years after its launch.
The stats are based on the devices which accessed Google’s Play store over the last 14 days.
Several key Android devices, including the Samsung Galaxy SIII, are yet to receive upgrades to Jelly Bean.
Samsung has promised to roll out Jelly Bean to the UK at the start of October, and availability is expected imminently.

For about five years now, the question for smartphone buyers has been a classic either/or: “Android or iPhone?” Answering that question is more difficult than ever, thanks to large advances in Android, as well as the emergence of a third viable option: Microsoft’s beautiful Windows Phone OS.
This week, we’ll attempt to break down your three options, looking at each operating system’s greatest strengths and weaknesses. Which one you choose should depend largely on how you use your phone.
For the first part of this comparison, let’s look at the iPhone and the iOS operating system. The most oft-repeated (and spot-on) description of the iPhone and its operating system is that Apple knows what you want and gives it to you and doesn’t let you change it; you can’t really alter or customize the experience because — well, why would you want to?

The Apple inspirational note left of the desk of Instagram user “M” and discovered by New York Times columnist Nick Bilton, sums what it means to be an Apple employee.
Basically, “Team Apple! F**k yeah!”
The Instagrammer who posted the photo of the note included these words: “What greets you on your first day at Apple. I’ve had this taped to my dresser for two years. Words to live by.”
The letter left on the desk of new Apple hires reads as follows, according to “M’s” image:
There’s work and there’s your life’s work.

After months of talk, Apple finally announced the release of its latest tablet device at an event in San Francisco, Calif. on March 7.
World, meet the new iPad. (That’ right, “iPad.” Not iPad 3, not iPad HD, not iPad 2X — just iPad.)
While the device doesn’t look too different from its predecessor on the outside, like the iPhone 4S before it, the differences are mainly internal. Share your thoughts in the comments below!

New versions of Twitter’s mobile apps are coming in to land on a device near you.
On Tuesday, the official Twitter Blog announcedupgrades for the microblog’s apps for Android devices, including the Kindle Fire and certain Nook tablets, as well as on Apple’s iOS devices.
The iPhone and Android apps will both feature a swipe shortcut that lets the user view a profile and reply, retweet, favorite or share a tweet without having to leave her home timeline.
Both apps will also get a “find friends” notification, which explicitly warns the user that she’ll be uploading her mobile contacts to Twitter’s servers. This is likely a response to the controversy that erupted last week when the blogosphere discovered that Twitter and other popular apps like Facebook and Instagram were swiping users’ address books without notifying the users.
