How do you consume media in bed?

Hello everyone,

I just wanted to ask a quick question: How do you consume media in bed?

tl;dr
I know I shouldn’t, but I do. I had this thing pictured below, but two of them broke, and it did not work very well…I used to have a laptop next to me, but I ended up selling that. Now I just use my phone, but its small and my hands get tired of holding it.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I keep meaning to bolt an old monitor arm on, but it’s not really worth the effort

I don’t. And IMO people shouldn’t either.

Bedrooms are for sleeping only.

Helps me have the proper mental separation so when I’m in bed I fall right asleep.

Yeah, I try not to also. That’s one thing I’ve been hearing a lot when trying to rid myself of periodic insomnia. Once the sun goes down the screens should go away.

If I don’t occupy my mind until I’m at the point of drifting off I’ll just lay awake worrying about my problems :frowning:

The best minds of our generation are being paid to overcome that self control.

They’re not really working on addicting people to the social aspect of an app though.

They actually seem to be doing fairly decent engineering work.

Ahhh right. Yeah, not sure how I feel about that.

Nice to have the net everywhere for work, not so nice for reasons obvious.

to specify on the iphone 13 part its globalstar that will be there first as space x internet is still beta but china also has a sat phone 3g system

its more qualcomm then apple making this push

its qualcomm setting it up in the iphone 13 x60 chip and the x65 for all customers the following year

I completly agree. And yet I use my phone in bed.
