Internet & Networking While browsing the ever-wider world web today, I came across a story about IBM's patent of a sort of "Facebook Remote Control." It was appalling. Do we seriously need more single-purpose devices that will enable us to sit around more wasting more time than we already do? Does anyone really need to seclude themselves from the world even more to publish their lives on yet another teen-infested network? Must we really always be connected to the net? Read on for my ramble concerning a dark side of technology.

It seems to me that this entire rant is against technology. Technology is for me the biggest achievement humankind has ever accomplished. Technology makes the things people want possible.

Now you are claiming that people are using that technology the way they want and that that is bad. You would like to take the technology away if people don't use it the way you would like them to use it.
