Always On

By Dennis McCafferty

Just One More Minute…

You always spend more time on the computer than you originally intended.

Too Much Tech

The more devices you have, the more you have on your 'to do' list.

Always On

You multitask so much with devices that you can't relax when it's time to sleep at night.

Rude Awakening

You wake up restless, until you pick up the smartphone and plug back in.

Looking Ahead

You're constantly thinking of what you need to do next, instead of savoring what you're doing right now.

Alone in the Crowd

Most of your Facebook friends are really strangers.

Virtual Existence

You put more time into experiences created online than those you pursue in real life.

Early Adopter

You feel less of yourself if you don't have the very latest version of the most popular gadget.

Superstitious Minds

You fear that if you cut everything off - even temporarily - bad things will happen.

Absence Noted

You buy devices for family members to stay connected, yet you don't actually spend time with them.
