We tell ourselves we're only going to get on our phones for a second and 30 minutes later we're still on them. We give our children an iPad to entertain them and when we take it away, a huge meltdown follows. What's happening? Why are we, and virtually everyone we know, so addicted to our devices?
Katie Singer, the author of "An Electronic Silent Spring," explains what's going on. She talks about the radiation and the infrastructure that supports our electronic habits. But she also does a deep dive into why we've become so dependent on our laptops, computers, and phones. And she gives us practical tools (such as setting an egg timer and turning off wifi) to help us extricate ourselves from our attachment to them.
