2 Jul 15, 2010 6:50 PM I am not sure if I am addicted or if the work/life blur has just reached epic proportion.... Either way, I need help! :-)
3 Jul 15, 2010 6:52 PM Out of necessity for business in order to service my clients needs that are usually unpreditable and haphazzard.
4 Jul 15, 2010 6:54 PM I got started on computers in 1962. Have owned lots of wow technology (Commodore, Palm Pilot, Apple Lisa). But I don't have a Blueberry or iPhobe, but will likely buy a netbook soon.

6 Jul 15, 2010 7:18 PM My first impulse was to say no but when I went on vacation at Disney I still took a computer with me as if I didn't have enough to do.

10 Jul 15, 2010 8:39 PM but only computers, not cellphones, etc.
11 Jul 15, 2010 8:55 PM I try keeping a balance by using my cell phone, no smartphone yet, for calls, important calls. The balance is also helped by my wife and me being offline at home and on weekends (though I do hit the local library for an hour on Sat and Sun to check emails).
12 Jul 15, 2010 11:24 PM Email and iPhone word games are a big problem.
13 Jul 16, 2010 12:56 AM I use technology as a tool to get stuff done, but it also ends up being a time waster.
14 Jul 16, 2010 12:54 PM Thank the Lord, I have a life and can enjoy the people I'm with and not a device!
15 Jul 17, 2010 4:42 PM Can you spend 12 hours a day on devices and not be somewhat addicted?
16 Jul 17, 2010 8:35 PM Not sure addicted is correct since it is my job as well as my hobby. I enjoy learning with and about the technology.
17 Jul 19, 2010 12:33 PM I go on my computer in the evening for no real reason, seems to be a bit of an addiction.
18 Jul 19, 2010 5:35 PM Each upgrade of my mobile device, from Motorola phone to Sharp organizer to Palm to BB to iphone, has deepened my dependency.
19 Jul 20, 2010 6:44 PM Like any other tools, I use them to enhance my life - not control my life.
