Quite so, BCB. Of course, 'real' countries that Eciwhtm mentions apparently have far more forward thinking attitudes to technology (though can't really see anyone on here who's anti-technology, not that he bothered reading the posts properly), and look where that's got them.... i.e., the UK. Mass unemployment, no money, no jobs, huge debt, rising crime levels, chronic poverty (never mind iPads, they can barely afford food/a roof over their head)...no hope, in fact, poor beggars.... yes, all that forward thinking and technology is getting them so far ahead of us we'll probably never 'catch up'. Thank god.
