The digital device, be it handheld, laptop, or desktop, has become the new member of the family. I’d go as far as to say that it is everyone’s favourite member of the family. Here’s why:
1. You want to be with it all the time.
2. You bring it almost every where you go, including vacations.
3. It’s the first one you share your joys and pains with.
4. It’s where you go for advice about anything from health to relationships.
5. It doesn’t hurt your feelings.
Is this why we’ve shifted from face time to interface time?
Inventors and scientists are working hard to create robots that behave as humans. Perhaps they should be looking for ways to make humans behave like robots.
