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's more about yourself, not the technology.

fun != waste your time

There are a lot of things you can do, have fun and don't waste your time. As we are at OSNews, i'll give you an example: Linus Torvalds still thinks programming Linux is fun. He changed the world of OSs having fun.

If at the end of your life you look back and say: "All my life I tweeted shits, and that was worthy." and don't blame yourself 'cause this, good for you.
