Screens everywhere – does that help?

John Moe Aug 12, 2010

Or is that a vague and somewhat biased question? On today’s show, Brian X. Chen from Wired talked about how the impending boom in tablet computers may result in a better ability for users to focus, especially when running apps that are less cluttered than what you might get on a browser. On the other hand, this vision includes a world full of screens and constant access to all the distractions of the internet. 

Do you think we’ll be more focused in the future?
