The gadget syndrome – a growing concern or not?

Like it or not; this seems to be the order of the day.  For so many of us, it appears that in order to live our daily lives we need to have a gadget either in the palms of our hands, on our night tables, or even under our pillows.

We do not seem to be able to function if we cannot have a gadget in our purse or pocket and if we need to do some thing as simple as check the date or perform a calculation, then woe be onto us if we cannot find our I device or calculator to do it.  Even more humorous are those who need to consult their I device in order to retrieve their home address or home phone number.

In short, if we do not have our gadget at our finger tips then we are lost!  What ever happened to depending on our good old memory whenever we needed to remember or recall an important piece of information?  Whatever happened to being able to call on our mental arithmetic to perform simple calculations?  Or even more; whatever happened to our ability to perform simple logic processes?

I would respectfully submit that this landscape has shifted from being able to depend on a strong mental process to the dependence on the gadget syndrome.

Just my two cents for today.
