(Science Daily) – Most Americans have some form of digital technology, whether it is a smartphone, tablet or laptop, within their reach 24-7.

Bugeja is not advocating against technology — in fact, he relies on it for his work and personal life — but he says we need to recognize the possible ramifications before it is too late.
