Don't forget that computers are tools. Use them, put them down, then go live your life!

You Are Already Living Inside a Computer. Futurists predict a rapture of machines, but reality beat them to it by turning computing into a way of life.

Suddenly, everything is a computer. Phones, of course, and televisions. Also toasters and door locks, baby monitors and juicers, doorbells and gas grills. Even faucets. Even garden hoses. Even fidget spinners. Supposedly “smart” gadgets are everywhere, spreading the gospel of computation to everyday objects.

Nowadays, people often don’t seek out computers in order to get things done; they do the things that let them use computers.

Computers are a tool.
Use them to get the job done, then go & do something more interesting instead!
 Anyway, when did the gadgets get smart, and the people become dumb?
