Smart phone proximity inverse correlates with cognitive capacity

«We see a linear trend that suggests that as the smartphone becomes more noticeable, participants’ available cognitive capacity decreases. [...] Your conscious mind isn’t thinking about your smartphone, but that process—the process of requiring yourself to not think about something—uses up some of your limited cognitive resources. It’s a brain drain.»

Sounds like addiction to me.
Ha - horrified but not surprised! Thanks for sharing.
Thanks Alexander. I'm gonna add this to my "smart phones are bad" pile of studies.
