Hell, I don't limit technology, I MAXIMIZE it. I'm 62 years old, guys, and this is so much damn better than what I knew as a kid, in the "Dark Ages."
When people sometimes play one of those parlor games, and one of the questions that goes around is: "What would you most miss if you died in your sleep tonight?" my answer is twofold -- the next morning's headlines, and what new inventions & advancements I missed ever seeing.
As for addiction, I'm addicted to nothing. No more than I'm addicted to my footwear, which my primitive ancestors didn't have. What I use is what is useful to me, in ways that are useful to me. And to be more useful to me, I make sure I and my partner always have the best that suits our needs best.
I don't have an iPad, because I haven't seen any need that it solves for me. My other computers and iPhone meet my current needs. But if I thought I actually required one, I'd get it in a flash. But not because touchpads are today's hot tech item to have, like having a clothing fashion item. I'm too practical to think that way.
I recently got us the latest 3-D HDTV with interactive 3-D glasses, with a 3-D Blu-ray player, external speaker system, and HD satellite service. And my partner (in his 70s) and I love it! We lie there in bed watching 3-D and just giggle, oooh and ahhh like little kids at the wonderful images and fantastic sound. Or watch Hi-Def TV shows all the time.
Because it entertains us, and pleases us. We grew up with tiny B&W TVs and fuzzy reception from rooftop antennas, tinny sound and limited channels. You imagine we'd turn down this bonanza? We think it's great! And as I said above, only regret I'll be missing what wonders come after me.
Technology, like eat or drink, is only an addiction when you permit it to be. The focused and strong-willed person maximizes this stuff to his benefit, it does not use or control him.
I don't have toys, I have tools. Functionality persuades me, though entertainment pleases me. Though strangely enough, I play no video games, have none on my computer or iPhone, own no game devices. Not functional to me, not entertaining to me, no interest. Another reason I decline the charge of technology addiction, and feel I have nothing to limit.
