I was off work earlier this week with a bad cold (nothing life threatening or anything) and discovered an interesting phenomenon…

why is it ok when sick to curl up in bed with a book, or watch rubbishy trashy tv & dvds yet taking advantage of a wireless networkto check emails/facebook/twitter etc. garners the response of ‘i thought you were sick?’

It’s quite scary to think about the number of gadgets I have town that can take advantage of the wireless network. There’s the laptops & netbook, mobile phone, games console, ipod, toaster, ebook reader etc.

So it is an interesting thought – books & dvds are suitable entertainment when ill but twitter & facebook are not.

A sign of the times perhaps?
