It's when a person has nothing to do or is idle and that person unintentionally takes out a gadget to preoccupy their time. For example: a student waits at a bus stop and unintentionally takes out his cell phone because he is bored.
It's kind of along with the concept of fiddling your thumbs, biting your nails, etc. and it can be anything "technology based" like blackberrys and ipods. and the term is not OCD.
My professor told me this awhile ago and i thought it was called "techno-boredom" but when I did a recent google search, I could not find it. I THINK he said it was a term dubbed out by Nextel.
Thanks in advanced.
