I tease my sister about always being on her "crackberry", but that is the limit of my hostility...and sarcasm...there is a little thing about responsible use that can be applied in anything...so a bunch of pointy-headed intellectuals decrying the dehumanization of technology...when these same morons gave us every ill spilling out of the 60's me-ism...
