An interesting article from the Chronicle of Higher Education on iPhone use. The Chronicle, citing a Standford Univeristy study of 200 students who own iPhones, reported that 75% of the students who own the phones said they made them feel happier. According to Stanford instructor Tanya Luhrmann, "It was not so much with the object itself, but it had so much personal information that it became a kind of extension of the mind and a means to have a social life." The article also references an extended treatment of the study that appears in the San Jose Mercury News.
