Everything is smaller

As our devices have gotten smaller, our vices remain just as vexing. We still buy more than we need and waste as much as we consume. We get things more quickly, but our tempers and patience have grown shorter. We’re likely to blow up over tiny inconveniences.—iGods: How Technology Shapes Our Spiritual and Social Lives, electronic edition

Basically, all technology can do is magnify who we are—both our good and our evil traits. Which is both a bummer and a blessing. Hopefully it will show us more quickly how totally we must rely on the Holy Spirit—if he can catch us between texting and Facebook updates!
