An acute condition which renders
incapable of remembering
why he or she unlocked their iPhone, even when this was done as little as one or two seconds
It arises due to the multitude
of gleaming white numbers in little red circles presented to the sufferer
once the phone is unlocked, indicating suddenly riveting unread emails, thrilling Facebook
and Twitter messages, essential weather forecast for tomorrow, exciting app updates, tantalising missed
Skype calls, potentially life-changing calendar invites and many
more, which inevitably cause the sufferer
to forget immediately what they were actually supposed
to be doing, e.g. making a simple
She: Why didn't you pay the credit card bill?
He: I was going to but when
at my phone, I saw five new emails, which I had to read, and a missed Skype call, which I had to return … and then I forgot
what I was supposed to do. Sorry, I think I've got iPhone Blindness.
