Yes, I think we are. However I am not that bad. I can still imagine mylife without it. I mean I have not been in this error to long in fact I think I would like some more simplicity in my life.

I think we are very much technoholi and particularly me..when i fiinish seeing tv i move on to the computer and next i go to the mobile phone and this has been my world for nearly two years and i cant imagine a world outside this and think that it would be difficult if these things are not there and if suppose ther is no current in my house then the major sufferer would be me more than others...

You betcha....I often take a break from all the technology, as I grew up in an era when only the rich could afford a TV! I am very grateful that I grew up, NOT techno-dependent! Sometimes I don't go near my computer for days...my cell phone I never use, unless I am going on a job-site, in a remote area, with NO other persons on-site....and only carry it in case I get injured. My home is not reliant on energy sources other than electricity! And still not that dependent on it! I heat with wood, therefore when the power is out (which is often on the small island I live on) I can cook on my wood stove, I collect my roof water, and pump it up to two by 10,000 gallon water storage tanks, so I always have water when the power is out! And I have Coleman Propane lamps for light! Cleaning the house, I opted for all wood floors which are swept! I hang my clothes to dry...and my washer is a gas-powered wringer-washer! I have chosen to be self-reliant, so that when power, etc., fail, there is really NO undue hardships! Good question!
