There’s one last place in my life where the alerts, texts, pings, and emails, emails, emails! can’t find me: the shower. It is a sacred space where I process information, brainstorm, and sometimes, as a treat, anxiety-spiral over something dumb I said 15 years ago. But it has come to my attention that some of you are violating the sanctity of Shower Thought Time by actually inviting your phones into the shower. When this came to my attention, I did some digging and discovered dozens — dozens! — of waterproof phone mounts designed for the shower. Truly, I am shocked. You guys are bringing your phones into the shower?I did a little research and polled my Verge colleagues: do you bring your phone into the shower? While it seems that most do not, I received responses that muddied the waters a little. What if your phone is on the edge of the bathtub? What if it’s on a MagSafe mount just outside of the shower? What about a smartwatch? What is a phone? What is a computer? Collectively, we seem to be on the side of keeping our phones out of the shower, but there’s some real gray area to consider.
