A long time ago, beds were for sleeping — not lounging space for TV watchers or technology users. Now, almost 100 percent of people try to browse the web, text, or tune in for a show before falling asleep, according to a new infographic, which also reveals that one in three smartphone owners would rather give up sex than their mobile devices. In other news, we’re all a bunch of losers.
