It has never been entirely clear why unplugging is so difficult for some people, or why some allow technology to disrupt their personal relationships. Forbes offers up yet another report on married couples whose love life is suffering thanks in part to their technology and e-mail infatuation. Therapists argue that a constant digital umblical to the office creates more work and increases stress, frequently leaving couples either too busy or too tired to have sex. We've been seeing these reports for years now, and it seems like people just aren't getting any better at putting down the crackberry. Of course it isn't the technology or constant connectivity that's causing the problems -- it's just that many people can't let go of stress and/or distraction. Or they feel that they must stay connected to show dedication at work, even if what they're discussing via e-mail at three in the afternoon on a Saturday isn't all that important. While some people's answer is to ignore technology entirely, the answer for techno-junkies has more to do with learning to relax, than learning how to master the off button.
