For the first time the technology will be part of the user... a literal extension of the user; it will always be there. New technology often results in unintended consequences. For example, according to TIME magazine no one anticipated that the iPhone (and other Smart Phones) would create a constant connective pull, "Do I have email? What's happening on Twitter? Could I get away with playing Angry Birds at this meeting?"
Likewise we never would have guessed that the convenience of text messaging would result in thousands of deaths in car accidents due to texting while driving. We are now also seeing a higher level of breast cancer in young women due to radiation from cell phones!
So some questions:
Where does our desire for connectivity end? Google Glass? This new watch?
What are the unforeseen consequences of this new connectivity?
Are we more or less free due to our constant connectivity?
