Internet has taken over our lives more or less - I have to get online everyday with no exception; I have a palm top TX Palm with which I stay connected when I cannot use my laptop and I also have the latest Nokia mobile who yet again keeps be connected atg all times when by other gadgets don't work. Are we getting addicted to being connected?? How addicted are you...do you make a point to take a break from the computer??? I wish I could ;)

I'm definitely addicted, and I'm really happy with it. But that's due to a flaw in my personality. As I go older (I'm 48 now) I'm losing more and more patience when dealing with other people like my family, neighbors, etc. And due to the Internet and programs like myLot I can be in touch with people who think like me. It's inevitable, because now I can choose my friends in the whole world. It's just great.

I think some ppl really are getting far too wired so to speak, especially the youth of today....its insane how nuts kids are with their cell phones and whatnot...nobody writes letters anymore, ppl dont even have to leave the house to do their banking, shopping, booking travels, hell you can even order take out online now in many areas and so on....its nuts... I dont own a cell phone or one of those palm pilot things..I have my computer but there are many days when I just cant be bothered to be on it let alone for hours on end...I honestly think that our continuously advancing technology is damaging us as a society on the whole and as individuals really....its pathetic if you really sit down and think about it...

I know what you are saying about kids and mobile phones...it is crazy but, at the same time, I feel it has helped them in a way, for example, if they are in danger, they can alert someone in a minute or they can be tracked through their mobile phones if they are lost. I agree with you in many ways - the advanced technology is a two sided blade...unfortunately!
