I have been reading quite a few articles lately debating the reality of internet and/or gadget addiction. (Here's one for example).
I am generally skeptical of all of the various sundry addictions, afflictions and modern day maladies people claim to be victims of -- More often than not, I believe a bunch of that crap exists only so that some pharmaceutical company can make and sell a pill for it.
That said, I think people can be addicted to gadgets, games and/or the internet. Just yesterday I was standing in line at Qdoba trying to get some lunch but the lady in front of me apparently couldn't get off of her damned cell phone long enough to order.
Is that addictive behavior or just bad cell phone etiquette?
