MPR: Distracted: "Between cell phones and BlackBerries, iPods and iMacs, we have numerous gadgets to occupy our every second. But author Maggie Jackson worries that having all this technology at our fingertips is chipping away at our ability to focus, and could ultimately lead to an age of cultural decline."
I've been saying that for the last two years!! As a parent, I can see how our toys and cell phones and computers have INTRUDED into our personal space. I hate what it has done to us. The cell phone has become a virtual leash. Not only for adults, but for our kids too!
