In a world where everyone has instant access to the latest and greatest of the internet, it’s no wonder so many of us are so addicted to using it. The problem is, most of us are just not aware of the actual content that our internet use is actually creating for us.
It’s become very clear that the majority of the content online is not of interest to most people. I don’t think that’s necessarily wrong, but when you start reading what people are saying about something, it becomes incredibly difficult to tell what the actual truth is. As I’ve said on my blog, I think the internet is a huge distraction from reality, and a lot of the time we don’t even realize it’s happening.
The thing about internet distractions is that they are becoming more and more common. For instance, you’re probably familiar with the adage that “the internet is the biggest distraction and it is making you fat.” Well, this is exactly what the internet is doing to the obese. As the internet has become a greater and greater place to gain free access to information, more and more people are finding themselves towing the rest of the internet for the sake of staying on top of things.
Well, its true that the internet is becoming a bigger time-waster than ever, but it is becoming a bigger time-waster in the sense that you are finding yourself spending more and more time on it and feeling like youre missing out on something because youre not always able to use it. For example, if youre just reading blogs, you cant use that thing to get ideas like you do when youre reading a book.
There are two kinds of internet use. One is the use of the internet to access the internet. The other is the use of the internet to access and share information. The main difference between the two is that the internet is becoming more and more a repository of information than a medium for content. That means it is becoming less and less a medium for content, and more and more a general repository of information.
In the old days, people could be reading a book and suddenly see the author’s face pop up on the screen and they were immediately entertained, because reading the same book over and over again wasn’t so bad. Now, a book is an ever-changing medium. Readers are constantly switching between books that are very similar but not quite the same. And they are constantly switching between books that are very different but still similar. And they are constantly switching between books that are very different but still similar.
A recent study of people who used a reading device (e.g., Kindle, Nook, etc.) found that they were twice as likely to read a book as when they read a book “on paper.” So it’s no surprise that we’ve all been using a reading device to read books since we were young. The problem is, it’s been a long time between reading and being entertained and reading on a reading device is much harder for a lot of people to do.
The problem is that reading on a tablet, ipad, etc. is hard. Its not just the page you have to read but also the screen size, font size, and even the quality of the text. When you read on a tablet or ipad, its often hard to make out what’s going on so its up to you to figure it out. Its like trying to be a good detective when you can only read the letter it in the book.
I understand that it is hard to read a book on a tablet or ipad. I think this is a shame. It’s hard to get the reading experience you want while reading a book on a tablet or ipad. But for a lot of people, the tablet or ipad isn’t a good substitute for reading a book. The great majority of us here at Geek.
