Amazing New Opportunities to Dilute Your Focus
Wow! What a time we live in!
New technology has made so many things possible that we never even dreamt of a few years ago. Along with the other great features of Google’s new Google TV technology it actually allows you to ”Watch and browse, simultaneously”! The TV network, ABC, has released a new iPad “app” that allows you to answer polls and play games while you’re watching their TV programs.
Have you ever tried to have a conversation with someone who is engrossed in watching a program or reading something their really in to? Doesn’t work very well, does it? So what is this technology actually helping us to do?
I feel like a cranky old curmudgeon for saying so, but how can we develop medicines for ADD and push products like this at the same time. Society is telling us that one must multi-task to be productive and now one even has to multi-task your entertainment.
Is focused attention becoming a bad thing?
