An Ugly Toll of Technology: Impatience and Forgetfulness






Are your Facebook friends more interesting than those you have in real life?
Well

Has high-speed Internet made you impatient with slow-speed children?

Do you sometimes think about reaching for the fast-forward button, only to realize that life does not come with a remote control?

If you answered yes to any of those questions, exposure to technology may be slowly reshaping your personality. Some experts believe excessive use of the Internet, cellphones and other technologies can cause us to become more impatient, impulsive, forgetful and even more narcissistic.


I do believe this is accurate, to what extent I'm not 100% sure. Ah well something to ponder over.

Well if live is lived like this these days it will only end with this...



The only difference being that you only get the one shot.

Anyone thats smart can see through the lie that is technology and its so called benefits when it comes to giving more time to spend with enjoyment and family. Life is about experiences, you cant have life through a lens or a button and expect it to teach you anything.
