Apple's co-founder on our over-dependence on technology to get work done.

Apple's co-founder Steve Wozniak made a rather ironic statement last week. Speaking during a tour of the Computer History Museum, Wozniak, who developed some of the earliest personal computers and had envisioned a PC in every home, said that he worried about people's over-dependence on technology and a digital lifestyle that will eventually result in expecting computers to do every possible human task.

CNN quotes him saying:

“All of a sudden, we've lost a lot of control,” he said. “We can't turn off our internet; we can't turn off our smartphones; we can't turn off our computers.”
