The ipad makes me bad at my job....and my life



Hi my name is Allison and I am addicted to the Ipad. Hi my name is Allison and the Ipad makes me a slacker at work. Hi my name is Allison and when I don't have the Ipad, I want to turn around, run home and get it. 
I forgot the ipad at home today. I usually bring it with me where ever I go. The Ipad belongs to P and I, but he has one provided by his work, so I carry our personal one with me most days. When I get to work every day, I unload my bag and set up the ipad at my desk so I can surf the internet and read your blogs through out the day. 
Without the ipad today, I felt vulnerable, exposed, and almost naked. But, on the flip side, I was so productive today. I got so much done, I feel like a rock star. 

Food for thought. But, Ipad, I pink winky promise to never ever leave you alone all day again. 

Are you addicted to technology?

Sad, isn't it?! Somedays I drain mine far too fast... I actually thought of challenging myself to have a certain battery % left at the end of the day... Cause that would mean I didn't waste my day away. *blush*

i am the opposite really. i hate what technology is becoming and how no one can leave the house without all of theirs and everywhere you look, people are texting, walking around with earbuds, and on ipads. i just don't like what it's becoming.

on the flip side, eric just bought be a kindle fire for my birthday and while i think it's cool, i could have completely done without it. i just upgraded to a smart phone like 3 months ago.

so no, i'm not addicted but i know that when i have my kindle, i can't stay off the internet. i guess it's a form of self control as to why i don't conform.

oh my gosh - you are killing me with this post! so does big brother not see you on your ipad? now that I have the iphone I am sneaking on it at work too - only if I am alone though. I do like not using the company internet to read my personal email. My company blocks A LOT of sites but I don't have unlimited data so I must watch my usage!!

i don't have too many gadgets, but according to my dad (who uses my sister's ipad whenever he gets the chance) the games "stack the states" and "presidents vs aliens" are addicting!

I'm so fixated on my iphone, and laptop. It's sad that if it came up missing, I'd offer a reward for it.

Oh God! So badly addicted? I was to a few games and apps on my smartphone. However I resisted those in time!
