A tool of avoidance, the culprit of lost focus, an excuse for not taking care of other things. The addictive nature of technology is such that some workers seem unable to function without it, their ears and eyes tied to mobile phones, their minds firmly fixed on endless streams of content, their fingers scrolling, swiping, typing until they clench and ache.
