Few Smartphone Users Watching Movies, TV Shows

I can’t say this is very surprising as the numbers are relatively low. After all, outside those of you who commute or travel frequently for work, when are you not in front of a laptop or iPad.

There were quite a few funny ones, and even included complete selling out for Eminem. I think the Doritos dog was hilarious, as of course was the VW one. What was […]
