Technology is ruining our lives

http://www.wreg.com/news/wreg-electr...726,full.story

Its time for me to get rid off all the plastic, including my debit card, and just carry cash.

Time alone with ones thoughts, is quality time.

They say there is a lack of jobs. Seems here to be more a lack of people willing to work hard, and take pride in the work they do.

Yeah sucks, kinda old news to me. you can "disable" the RFID. Google it.

Another scam I read about was if you had your Bluetooth on on your phone and were not using it, there could be a person in the area on a laptop or even another smart phone with blue tooth that could make calls via your phone to nontool free numbers racking up the bill. of course theses people would be connected in some way to the number you are calling and collect big time, sometimes in the hundreds of dollars.

Dont use bluetooth if you dont have to and make sure your phone software is upto date.

But how is the rich land owner going to keep track of his herd.

We are all just slaves building Pyramids for the Pharos. Keep the price of our grog cheap and we'll keep working!

Fortunately we have technology that we can leverage to alert others that we interface with using technology about the hazards of technology. Technologically speaking, of course.
