Fascinating numbers on what we do

August 20, 2013

We check our phones 150 times a day, that is once every 6.5 minutes and in 2017 there will be more mobile phones than people.

And when we are not checking our phones we are taking pictures on them with 1 in 10 of all photos taken in history snapped last year.

In fact, we took 375 billion photos in the last 12 months.

These extraordinary pieces of information and countless more about our habits and wants are contained in a video produce by Travelport one of the world’s largest travel reservation systems.

Each day Travelport produces 1.2 billion itineraries and makes 225,000 hotel reservations.

And talking of travel, since it took flight in 1970 the Boeing 747 has carried 3.5 billion passengers, while the new A380 superjumbo is more fuel efficient per passenger than a Toyota Prius.
