Connected, but alone?

Here’s another TED talk video I thought you all might enjoy, it’s an interesting analysis of our growing dependence on technology. Find it here.

Here’s another interesting article on CNN about the recent release of Instagram in the Android marketplace. Many iPhone users (myself included) are pretty upset about this; Instragram now lacks its exclusivity which once made it so appealing. Is this an overreaction? I’d say definitely, but an interesting one nonetheless. The article quotes a CNET editor as saying “‘the most remarkable takeaway of this phenomenon, I think: that which smartphone we own has begun to inform our identities.'” Does your phone make up part of your identity?
