According to ABC news, 16-year-old Annie Levitz from Mundelein, Ill. began to sense a different type of feeling in her hands. They would feel tingly, numb, or just plain hurt. Annie had been texting her friends. Finally, she went to the doctor, he diagnosed her not with text dependency, but with carpal tunnel syndrome. After this she was told that she must wear a brace on each hand and take in cortisone injections. She also had to have surgery. All of this pain for nothing other then texting, that’s right! Texting an a regular old cell phone. Over 4000 texts sent every month, She believes, though, that there might be a cure. Not for the texting, but for the carpal tunnel, an iPhone. “I do think that since it’s touch it won’t be as rough on my hands,” she said.
So there it is, a new marketing plan for Apple’s greatest invention. The iPhone.
