The inventor of the world’s first cellphone says he’s stunned by how much time people now waste on their devices, telling users to “get a life.”
Martin Cooper, 92, made the declaration during an interview with “BBC Breakfast” on Thursday, responding to a co-host who claimed she whiled away upwards of five hours per day on her phone.
“‘Do you really? You really spend five hours a day? Get a life!” he stated, before bursting into laughter.
Chicago-based Cooper invented the Motorola DynaTAC 8000X — the world’s first cellphone — back in 1973.
