Lots of ScreensPosted: December 7, 2011
Tracking my use of computers over an evening, it’s a little shocking how connected I always am. As soon as I got home from class, I put my computer down to charge and turned on a television. In my room, I seem to leave my TV on just for the sound. While my computer charged, I used my blackberry to communicate with my friends. At a certain point, I found myself sitting in front of the living room TV with a laptop in my lap and a blackberry sitting next to me, and my TV on in my room connected to my playstation. Just about everything I do is aided by a computer.
This fact became very clear to me when I broke my laptop a few weeks back. The screen died, and I could barely keep up in any of my classes. The experience showed my the downside of being so dependent on technology; it breaks all the time.
