Multitasking madness
Multitasking madness

Beware of the multitasker. He or she isn’t being honest, for anyone who claims the ability to talk on the phone, surf the web, cook dinner, send a text message, balance the checkbook, and fly a crop duster all at the same time is terribly misguided. He or she might even be suffering from madness.

“Jobs” – Did you think just a moment about going to go see this movie but didn’t because you thought it would be too “techie,” too “geekie,” too “nerdie” or perhaps be just too boring for the average (or the “analog”) person?
