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.

"Must we really always be watching the television?"

What is this "television" you speak of? ;-)

Seriously, I gave up television 15 years ago or more. I watch, perhaps, 3-4 hrs per year.

The only reason I watch television is for the re-runs of MASH and maybe the occasional Brit Comedy. Most television these days are geared to the lowest common denominator - one would have to kill several million brain cells on a regular basis just to find what they broadcast during prime time as being entertaining.
