Blaming the new tech

Talk to the Hand

How tech impacts people skills

Though not a new book, Talk to the Hand by Lynne Truss should make an interesting reading especially to those suffering from ‘the utter bloody rudeness of everyday life' arising from new technology. When people look for a piece of technology to blame for modern manners, it is often television that cops the lot, but we forget what an impact the telephone had when it was first introduced, the author reminds. With the advent of the phone, people could choose to conduct real-time private conversations with people who weren't there, she adds.
