Tony Fadell, the "father of the iPod": "Apple must do something to counteract the dependence on the iPhone"
Tony Fadell, a former Apple employee known as the “father of the iPod”, he believes that Apple has the responsibility to counter the problem of addiction to the iPhone. According to him, what is needed is the equivalent of a council on power and then a way to keep track of our “consumption”.
Fadell explained his thinking in an interview with Wired: "When you speak of "nourishment" digital", we don't know what a "vegetable", a "protein" or "fat". What is the “overweight” or “underweight”? What is a digital life moderate and healthy? I believe that manufacturers and app developers should take responsibility on this thing, before regulatory agencies of the government to intervene – as with the nutritional labels. [...] I believe that Apple to maintain, and even grow, its user base can resolve this problem by the platform, giving users the opportunity to understand much more about how to use their own devices. To do this, you should allow people to track their digital activity in a detailed way, and on any device".
The former depends on Apple also hopes in the news that make it more healthy use of devices such as smartphones and tablets: "Apple could also allow users to set their devices in a "listen only" or "read only", so as not to be disturbed by the constant vibration of the notifications while you read an e-book".
