Yanks say to-apple-may-to. Europe says to-samsung-maa-to.

40% of Americans own an iPhone with 35% owning a Samsung. Across the Atlantic ocean, the EU5 (France, Germany, Spain, Italy, and UK) prefers Samsung with 35%, followed by iPhone at 27%.

Chick-fil-A: Better at parenting than you & gives little Johnny ice cream, too.

A local Chick-fil-A in Georgia is challenging family members to put down their phones during meals. A cell phone coop is conveniently located at the table. Everyone puts their phone on silent, places it in the box, and if everyone successfully completes their meal without needing to reach for their phone, they get FREE ice cream.

Wonderful concept.

Unfortunately, everyone is now furiously chewing food and swallowing after two-three bites, thumbs tapping on chicken like an email message, while everyone is wondering how to take a selfie without a phone.
