The power of distraction

I have played angry birds for at least 15 hours of my life. I know
this because the game alerted me when it happened. I have received
other equally preposterous rewards, like breaking 5000 digital
wooden boxes or shooting a few hundred birds out of a sling shot. I
am not sure how proud I should be of all of this, but I do know
that the power of distraction and avoidance is so strong that I
have spent much of my disposable time trying to get pigs to roll
off of leaning rock towers. And that is what the world of mobile is
doing. It is sucking my disposable time. I haven’t figured out just
how much of that is a bad thing, but you better believe I am
looking into it.
