The irony of the relationship between technology and idleness


One of the purposes of everyday technology (mobiles, laptops, etc.) is to make us more efficient. But we rarely use our 'freed up' time to 'be' but instead occupy it with more 'do'. And in modern city life, this means occupying ourselves with more technology.

Ironic, the thing that was designed to free time is now occupying time (and is quite efficient at it).
