Mobile internet access is set to overtake that of stationary computers. Do these new devices make us more free? Or is there a danger of becoming addicted to the feeling of being constantly online? How do you personally handle that?
Nowadays, we post pictures, videos, and blogs on the internet from wherever we are. Commuters quite naturally chat and sort through their e-mails on the train.
Constant and direct availability of information not only threatens to trigger states of mind where we can’t switch off anymore, we also increasingly feel that we’re missing something when we’re not online. Do mobile internet devices really have such an addictive potential? Is it possible to be obsessed with smartphones or tablets? Feel free to join the discussion!
