STUDENT LIKE HALEY OPENS THE APP WHEN SHE GETS TO CLASS. THE APP DETECTS SHE IS ON CAMPUS AT THE RIGHT TIME. WHEN SHE LOCKS HER PHONE THE TIMER STARTS AND EARNS REWARDS.

I USED TO BE ON MY PHONE A LOT IN CLASS, BUT NOW I WANT THE OPPORTUNITY TO SEE RETAKE THE CLASS. YOU GET MORE WORK DONE. Reporter: POTENTIAL BAD NEWS FOR HOLIDAY TRAVELERS. UNITED AIRLINES IS ANNOUNCING AN EXTENSION OF THE GROUNDING OF THE BOEING 737 MAX JETS FOR ANOTHER MONTH.

THE MOVES BY FEDEX AND UPS COME AS AMAZON ANNOUNCED IT WOULD INCREASE DELIVERY OPTIONS BY ADDING MORE VEHICLES TO ITS FLEET AND HAVE MORE PLANES TO BOOST THEIR EFFORTS. I WAS CHECKING MY APPS, LIKE, ARE THEY ARRIVING? OH, IS IT GOING TO ARRIVE? I’M GUILTY OF THAT. I NEED — I JUST HAPPENED TO PURCHASE SOMETHING OVER THE HOLIDAY WEEKEND AND I’M LIKE, I’LL SHIP TO THE HOUSE. AND I LOVE THE TECHNOLOGY WHERE YOU CAN TRACK IT AND LOOK AT IT FROM CITY TO CITY AND THEN TO SPRINGFIELD AND THEN OUT FOR DELIVERY. THERE IS SOMETHING SATISFYING ABOUT CHECKING WHERE IT IS TO SEE IT IS ON ITS WAY. IT IS ALMOST HERE. IT’S ON ITS WAY. I’M ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE WHERE IN THE OLDEN DAYS, LIKE EARLY 2000s, WHEN ONLINE SHOPPING WAS JUST BECOMING A REALLY BIG THING, I WAS SO NERVOUS ABOUT IT BECAUSE I DIDN’T WANT TO ENTER MY CREDIT CARD INFORMATION. I FELT IT WASN’T SAFE. NOW FAST FORWARD TO 2019 I DO A LOT OF ONLINE SHOPPING BECAUSE IT IS CONVENIENT. THAT INFORMATION IS WHO KNOWS WHERE. DO YOU LIKE TO ONLINE SHOP, OR GO INTO A STORE? I’M PROBABLY 70/30. I USUALLY BUY MOST STUFF ONLINE, BUT CLOTHING I’D RATHER JUST TRY ON IN THE STORE. I USED TO BE THE TYPE — IF I WANT TO BUY IT I WANT IT NOW AND HAVE IT HOME NOW. NOW THE ONLY GOOD THING ABOUT ONLINE SHOPPING IN MY LIFE IS THAT’S MADE ME BECOME MORE PATIENT BECAUSE I’M AN IMPATIENT PERSON, BUT ONLINE SHOPPING HAS FORCED ME TO BE PATIENT. I LIKE IT, COLLECT IT, BUY IT, WAIT FIVE DAYS FOR IT TO ARRIVE BECAUSE I’M TOO CHEAP TO PAY FOR THE TWO-DAY SHIPPING. I DON’T THINK I HAVE EVER PAID $20 FOR SHIPPING. SOMETIMES YOU’RE ORDERING SOMETHING THAT IS NOT EVEN $20 AND THEN YOU HAVE TO PAY AN EXTRA $20 FOR SHIPPING. SOMETIMES THEY DO TWO-DAY SHIPPING WITH AMAZON PRIME BUT I DON’T SHOP THAT MUCH TO MAKE IT WORTH IT. I CAN WAIT FIVE DAYS, MAYBE. BACK TO THE STORY ON CELL PHONES IN THE CLASS. I’M NOT A FAN OF CELL PHONES IN THE CLASS. CHANGING CLASSES IN THE HALLWAY, YES. I DON’T KNOW HOW TEACHERS DO IT TODAY. WHEN I WAS GROWING UP WE COULDN’T HAVE IT IN SIGHT AT ALL IN THE CLASSROOM. I FEEL LIKE THERE IS A LOT OF CHEATING OPPORTUNITIES WITH TECH AROUND YOU. I’M TELLING YOU, I COMPLETELY AGREE WITH YOU. KEEP THOSE CELL PHONES OUT OF THE CLASSROOM, ONLY IN THE HALLWAY. THANKS SO MUCH, KAYLEE. MORE INFORMATION. MORE FUN ON OZARKS FOX AM AFTER THIS. CAN YOU IMAGINE DOING A MATH TEST AND BEING LIKE —
