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.

We need to compensate for all those starving african kids without technology!

On a more serious note, it's called progress or change. People always resisted it. Luckily today we don't burn people anymore who claims the earth is round (it's flat and hollow btw). But you are free to go back into the ocean and live as an amoeba. We can all agree that a live as an amoeba is a lot less work, simpler and if amoeba do the sex thing than it's just as much fun.
