A new report by the Pew Research Center found that over 80% of American adults now own a cell phone. Besides actually making a call, the most common activities are text messaging and taking pictures. 13% of respondents admitted to pretending to be on the phone in order to avoid those around them. In other news, the location-based service Foursquare recently introduced a new feature that lets users create lists of their favorite places. Think you know all the coolest spots in town? Foursquare now lets you share them with your friends. And finally, if you’re trying to ease your way into a mobile data plan, Verizon is testing a $20 a month entry-level option. While the cheapest smartphone option, it only allows 300MB of monthly data. There’s no reason to buy this plan, as 2GB is only $10 more.
