Wi-Fi As An Addictive Drug

Blogger David Haskin found himself addicted more to WiFi than coffee, which he gave up five months ago. His confession came as the WiFi Alliance released the findings of a study showing that 80 percent of respondents would rather quit drinking coffee than lose their WiFi connection. Haskin said he brings WiFi travel routers when he is on the road, and stops by coffee shops, not to drink coffee, but to check his email even if he does not need to. He also admitted to stopping in a parking lot outside coffee shops to get a quick WiFi fix as well as taking his laptop to the sofa every evening to surf the Web “mindlessly for hours and hours.”
