Do you usually have your smartphone or tablet with you while you watch TV?

I only watch TV on my laptop, and even then only one show. I prefer to play games in my spare time.

This implies that 10% (give or take) of the smart-phone-user population does not watch TV.

04/27/12 5:14 pm

I use viggle too. Free giftcards for watching TV? Sure why not. Too bad they don't have the $5 amazon giftcards anymore.

My dad watches Fox News when his talk radio DJ goes off the air (he's a Tea Partier..ugh) and I fiddle around on my kindle and try to zone out (I hate politics period) I drive my sister nuts by texting her and hitching about how retarded politicians/Obama is lol

Yes because I use the Viggle app which earns me points for rewards by watching tv. And I can check my phone during commercials.

Drives my husband insane because it doesn't matter how good a show or movie is, I have to grab my phone and check my messages or something.
I think I'm addicted to my iPhone.

Yup, especially when I watch movies. I have to go to imdb to research everything about anything tv wise.

Yes. I usually only watch tv when my husband is at work. In which case we both need to be in contact with each other in case of emergency.

04/26/12 7:40 pm

Yep, my iPhone's always by my side, until I go to bed. Then it's sayonara till morning...

Before the iPhone I would say no. I only had my iPad. Now it's in my pocket mostly all the time.

@David OR, if you watch TV at the gym, at a friend's house etc (like me), then use that to answer the question. I say usually yes I do have it with me, just because I almost always keep it with me to begin with.

04/26/12 5:07 pm

David just go buy a TV and then you can answer it or you could just rent one or you could borrow one from a friend, damn they questions are just toooo tough sometimes!

There is a name for questions like this that make assumptions, maybe "gotcha" questions. How do I answer if I have no TV?

Not usually but I might have my cell phone in case I get a text or my iPod.

Another of my favorite apps is the Directv app since I have on demand it can stream a lot of my favorite channels to my IPad. If its good weather I go outside and drink coffee and smoke and watch Fox news, just awesome!
