Talk Tech To Me

By Soda Says

What is it with our smartphones? As our relationship with them turns increasingly intimate and obsessive, we struggle to live with them, yet can’t live without them! In a new six-part series, join long-time journalist Jackie Annesley as she interviews a gamut of guests from TV star Anne Robinson to fashion photographer Rankin about what their phones and attitudes to tech reveal about their personalities.

It might even make you feel better about your own weird phone habits. Or not.
