Are Americans too dependent on technology?

I'm Canadian and say yes we are too dependent on technology. I like to mix the old with the new. This may sound silly to you, but I don't own a dishwasher and never wanted one. The old way is great and it takes seconds and reserves water (which is already on the top of the list between the U.S. and Canada.) I may use an old bike where I have to pedal harder than the 12-speed I own because it makes my muscles sit up and take notice. LOL I don't sit in front of the TV and gawk at it for hours, and I use my time on the computer within limitations and spend more time with my spouse and friends and well as do my artwork. I am not a pill-popper and believe that sometimes it's wiser to try to work things out naturally (we can't always do that of course and thank God for some medications.) I don't own a cell phone, but my husband has one and if I go out at night alone in the car I take it along, but only for emergency purposes. If I want to contact someone I try the good old telephone and if I can't reach them then I will email them. If someone does a good deed for me or I just love 'em and miss 'em then I will ACTUALLY mail a card or letter to them the good old fashioned way. In other words, I like to work a little harder and not end up a lump that appears to have had a lobotomy because of the easy way technology has led us in. Technology certainly has it's perks, but, I'm careful with it and believe in using my brain instead of letting machines do my thinking for me, or pills to keep me going.
