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.

Meh, says who. Unhealthy products don't appear out of thin air; to consume them, people have to actively go out and buy them.

People can chose to buy or not buy something, chose to be active or inactive. There aren't actually any secrets about how to lose weight or live a healthy life, and people can decide to do these things. Nannying people who decide not to isn't my job.
