Touchscreen life

Devices that were designed to make our lives easier to control now appear to be controlling us. The proliferation of technology and our reliance on it is now becoming a familiar part of modern life.

Many people welcome the intrusion as it brings with it unprecedented levels of social interactions, entertainment and other things that enrich us.

But many owners of smartphones and tablets appear to be inextricably attached to their devices and this attachment permeates their entire home life; not even time spent with their nearest-and-dearest can break the eye-to-screen bond.

This is a significant social change, this is the touchscreen life.
