With the ever growing number of 'smart' phones,tablets,notebooks and other wireless technology are we really better off with them? I can remember a time (not that long ago) when there were NO cell phones(let alone smart ones),the only tablet you had was the one you wrote in and texting,IM'ing,etc.was

a science fiction fantasy. If you were not at home....you werent at home.there was no texting,surfing the web(which didnt exist yet) or any thing like that.If you wanted to remember a phone number you had to write it down and or commit it to memory.Now in this 'tech world' half of us cant remember our own phone number let alone someone else's.What did we do before GPS on phones? Ask for directions or better yet learn to read a map....So, are we really better off with all this technology? I can't say for sure,but before it,things were a lot simpler....
