    This is absolutely correct. Between my phone and iPad I have noticed an definite increase in neck and shoulder soreness. A lot of mine attributed to Infinity Blade II.

    Gadgets they'll get you every time. I have a solution for that coming very soon. I think I just landed a job in the oil fields of Norther California and should be pulling up stakes in about a week and won't have nearly as much time as I have in the past three years. I may even have to step away from the Eye Of PapaMag we'll see.

    Neck pain and shoulder is not the only problem we're headed here. Do not discard carpel tunnel syndrome; especially, the way smartphones are growing in size in time we're gonna have to use the whole palm of our hands to key in a single keystroke. I have somewhat average size hands I'd like to think compared to an orangutan's. But seriously, my sister comes from a line of Android devices and she could not stand having to pull out that massive phone to type, she just used the speech to text. Great advise to anyone loving to do this but lets say you're in a noisy surrounding, then what?

    They're a huge pain in the neck, hands, spines, shoulders, and not to mention our wallets. Instead of taking pain killers we're gonna have to find a side job just to help us buy these shenanigans every year.

    Yeah I guess Dave, working as a Field Engineer once again. It is good news since both my wife and me lost our jobs, with this she can stay retired and has earned it.

    Well it's good news Craig the oil industry is still working but remember to follow all the safety classes, (its always a good field to get into) I hope you don't have to spend too many days at a time in the field.

    All my days will be in the field, but that's ok I kinda like it that way. I'll be tracking production and cost so it's the best place to be to get the real time percentages. Thank's guys hopefully I'll have some evening time and drop in often.
