I'm not an addict.
Seriously I'm not.
Ok fine, just hold on while I light a smoke and grab a cup of coffee and I'll tell you all about it....
Technology just invades and infiltrates my life. It parades its expensive little appeal right under my nose, laughing at the empty pockets on my jean pant. I don't think I actively go seeking it. It just appears right there in front of me, and well, by hook or by crook I inevitably end up owning the cunning device.
What's worse, online - it's all free, or close to free, so there's even more places to get hooked into the interwebs.
So let's take a quick inventory.
