    I am always cautious about technology we all enjoy it and of course I could not be on this forum without it. The biggest problem is when it is no longer available. I have seen parents so upset at their children for viewing things on the internet that the parents took away their ability to connect to the internet. This withdrawal the child needed therapy. It is terrible when you think these advances are a necessity. In the last week there was a black out with the Xbox which caused a lot of people to get very upset.

    Watch any natural disaster and you will see many people totally confused and lost not only needing help but therapy to get over it. What would happen if the internet went down and wifi /bluetube no longer worked the thought of that would scare 90% of the teen agers?
    Also I hope we don’t get so addicted that the future holds implanted phones via chips in the brain
    So we can stay connected. 666

    Glad you are back, @Thomas Stearn. I hadn't seen you post for a while.

    This video was an excellent find that condenses all the research I've done into its essence, although it did skip over the privacy invasion of having Big Bro in your pocket, but I suspect only them living under a rock are not already well aware of that aspect. Good job!

    That's where it's headed, and you can bet the minute it hits the market, the braindeads will be camped out in front of their tech store to be the first on the block to get Cyborged!

    I went off on my grandson the other day because I asked him to do something and instead of doing it he continued to reach for his phone first. He couldn't understand why I was angry. Well once we got home I lit into him about it and told him the next time I tell him to do something don't have me wait again, EVER!

    I find the insularity that the smartphone encourages is disturbing. It probably stops people questioning the political ills of our countries, a bit like the cheap gin of the seventeenth century but they could also orchestrate riots. I hate people bumping into me and the endless inane conversations on busses, but I am old and if I was twenty it would be me yapping away.
