Everyone I know is now addicted to the Internet. Laurel and I have our phones out all the time, or we watch Netflix together, or read books on our Kindles, or work on our computers. I can’t even go to the bathroom without pulling out my phone to read Hacker News or the NyTimes.
Even my old technology hating Grandpa is now addicted. His tablet is out for hours a day as he checks email and stock prices.
As I drive to work, everyone I see has their phones out. Each line of cars inevitably gets held up by someone who doesn’t see the light turn green.
And it will only get worse with virtual reality now becoming commonly available.
