The Onion: Best Tech Critic Ever
I love The Onion. The satire is odd, biting and mostly clean. Here's my latest favorite high-tech missive, and I'll quote directly:
"A new report published this week by researchers at Stanford University suggests that Americans spend the vast majority of each day staring at, interacting with, and deriving satisfaction from glowing rectangles."
The article satirically claims we "spend 90% of our waking hours" in front of these screens, be they TVs, laptops or mobile phones.
The Onion may be overstating things, but by how much? How much time do you and your family spend staring at some kind of tube? I know for me, it's way too much. Send your hours and feelings to firstname.lastname@example.org.
