5Across: Technology Overload

  • Aired: 10/08/2009

  • Rating: NR
Many of us are feeling overwhelmed with technology and are trying to deal with it. Some people try to take a "Technology Sabbath" - a day off from their computers. On this episode of 5Across, we convened a roundtable of folks who are either overloaded with technology or helping people deal with that overload. And for true balance, the discussion also touches on the benefits of technology, too.
