Weaning myself off gadgets - by accident

Gadgets make my life significantly simpler, but I do sometimes feel tied to them.

Force of circumstances separated me from all tech for six hours recently. That made me realise I have a problem. I hesitate to say 'addiction' but ...

Today I had a working train journey planned. iPad was nicely on charge and I knew the task I was going to complete. As I arrived at the station I realised it's still charging. At home. So that work will have to wait.

Although I'm now writing this and listening to music (Aretha Franklin, since you asked) on my phone, I'm going to wean myself off tech.

So if I don't reply to tweets, emails or status updates for a couple of hours once in a while, you'll know why.
