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.

Although not OS related, it's a nice article. And the author are not against technology as some guys here seems to think.

It pretty much reflects our society. You have to consume content, even if this "content" is simply crap. Consume, consume, consume. And this is a new era! (!) Today everybody produces content, just because there are a lot of people who will consume this content, no matter if it's just shit.

I didn't think about these things before Twitter. This article just reflects almost all I think about it. And it seems to answer the question author points: "Must we really always be connected to the net?".
