Americans Look at Their Smartphones More Than 9 Billion Times Daily, Up 13 Percent From 2015

How many times a day do you check your phone?  A hundred?  A thousand?  Are you literally looking at it RIGHT NOW?  It's scary.

 According to a new study by the consulting company Deloitte, Americans checked their phones a total of NINE BILLION times A DAY this year.

 That means we looked at our phones a total of about 3.3 TRILLION times in 2016.

 About 175 million Americans have smart phones, so that means the average person checks their phone roughly 51 times a day, or almost 19,000 times a year.

 The study also found almost HALF of us check our phones in the middle of the night . . . 90% of us check our phone within an hour of waking up . . . and the first thing we look at in the morning is our texts.

Couponing mom claims she was attacked during Kroger visit

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- On Friday just before midnight Megan Wilson says she was trying to get rid of some coupons before they expired, when she got far more than she bargained for.

"He grabbed my bun pulled me back and smashed me into my cart. When I came to I was on the ground and my leg was under the cart," said  Wilson.

"He started shouting 'Come on, there's other people out here. Nobody has time for this,'" added Wilson.

She said he got upset that she was holding up the line. She told WREG she went back and forth with the man before things got physical.

She posted a video on Facebook detailing the alleged attack.

She claimed her shopping cart was knocked over during the violent check out melt down. Wilson said the man took off out the door leaving his items behind.

WREG reached out to Kroger. In a statement they said they are saddened by the incident.

Kroger said it will work with police to resolve the situation between the two customers. Wilson believes all of it could have been avoided.

"15-20 minutes of harassment before the attack. It could have been prevented," said Wilson.

Americans Look at Their Smartphones More Than 9 Billion Times Daily, Up 13 Percent From 2015

NEW YORKDec. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- A new survey released by Deloitte today confirms American consumers' dependence on mobile phones continues to rise as the platform of choice for work, home and self across an increasing range of tasks. Consumers now check their smartphone more than 9 billion times per day and increasingly do so while engaged in other activities, such as watching television (TV) – with 89 percent of consumers reporting simultaneous use of the TV and smartphone. 

"Among the most interesting findings is how our reliance on mobile devices has changed the very nature of person to person communications; texting and other short forms of communication are beginning to dominate, enabling us to communicate more frequently and effectively," said Craig Wigginton, vice chairman and telecommunications sector leader, Deloitte & Touche LLP. "This year's survey data confirms that not only is the smartphone the central hub of consumers' everyday lives, but consumers are willing to pay for a range of applications gaining steam in the market such as IoT for the home and car."

Suspects Pocket Dial 911

DANVILLE, Ky. (Advocate Messenger/LEX 18) -- A routine trip to a local diner allowed Danville's Police Chief to serve a side of a justice to some would-be robbers.

According to the Danville Advocate Messenger, police say two suspects were sitting inside their car outside of Brothers' BBQ discussing their plans to rob the restaurant. Unfortunately for them, one of the men had accidentally pocket dialed police dispatch.

Serendipitously, Police Chief Tony Gray was enjoying dinner and talking to owner Mike Southerland when he got a phone call. 

“They start to walk out together, then Tony gets a call — I see Tony’s police face come on, so I knew something was up,” Southerland told the Advocate Messenger.

Gray was told that dispatch had picked up an accidental call and could hear people discussing robbing a business. They were triangulating the location from key words, including the mention of Chief Gray's name. 

"Basically pinged the cell phone to the parking lot and they were planning to rob this or another business here in the area,” Sotherland told LEX 18.

“There was some conversation about when they should do it, they might be recognized if they do it in Danville, and I think they did talk about some different locations …” Gray said, noting that he hasn’t heard the actual tape yet. “Somewhere in the conversation, my name was brought up.” 

Chief Gray and other responding officers searched the parking lot until they found the men in their car. One of them had a mask on his person.

The men, identified as Robert Bourne and David Grigsby, have only been charged with public intoxication. The 911 tape will be turned over to the prosecutor's office to see if other charges will be filed.

Chief Tony Gray told LEX 18 that it appears the two were just drunk and not actually going to rob any businesses.

Bourne and Grigsby are not allowed to come back to the restaurant. the two tried to go back to the restaurant and apologize but Southerland asked them to leave.

Alan Thicke dead @ 69

2016 has killed again, and this one was pretty unexpected.  ALAN THICKE died yesterday at the age of 69.  That's not exactly young, but there was no indication there was anything wrong.

 He was apparently still pretty active, because TMZ says he had a heart attack while he was playing hockey with his 19-year-old son Carter in Burbank. 

 A source says he started having chest pains shortly before noon.  Then he got nauseous and vomited.  He was rushed to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

 Alan was best known for playing the dad, Dr. Jason Seaver, on "Growing Pains", which ran from 1985 to 1992.  More recently, he appeared on "How I Met Your Mother""This Is Us", and "Fuller House".

He was actually on Twitter earlier yesterday, saying, quote, "Season 2 Fuller House looking good.  I even like the ones I'm not in!"

 He also wrote the theme songs to several TV shows, including "Diff'rent Strokes" and "The Facts of Life", and the game shows "The Joker's Wild", and "Wheel of Fortune".

 In addition to Carter, Alan had two other sons . . . Brennan and, of course, ROBIN THICKE.  He's also survived by his third wife Tanya . . . who had just posted this photo two days before her husband's death.

Robin called his dad, quote, "the greatest man I ever meant," and said, quote, "The good thing was that he was beloved and he had closure.  I saw him a few days ago and told him how much I loved and respected him."

 There have been tributes from various celebrities, but nothing yet from the "Growing Pains" cast.  Several members of the "Fuller House" cast released statements, though.

 Bob Saget Tweeted, quote, "So sad is the passing of Alan Thicke.  Such a good husband, father, brother, and friend.  He will be deeply missed.  Rest in peace dear Alan."

 And Candace Cameron Bure said she was "sad beyond words" at his passing.  She's known Alan most of her life, since her brother Kirk Cameron played his son on "Growing Pains"

 (Here are a few more.  And you'll find more random celeb tributes here.)
