You have heard people complain that this generation doesn't have an attention span. Everything comes in quick bites, whether it's the news, the weather, reading text messages, or sending emails.
"No one reads anymore," you can imagine people saying. Of course, that's not true. Most people read more than ever, what with text messages and emails constantly coming in.
However, there is some truth to our limited attention spans. If you check your smartphone for news, you know how it goes. You scroll through a bunch of headlines, to get a sense of what's going on in politics, your neighborhood, finance, technology, sports, entertainment and celebrity gossip.
There's a really cool app that lets you customize those headlines, along with a summary of the news. It's called Recent News.
