          Most people (myself included) spend way too much time on this forum as it is. I'd suggest we all try to be less connected to our devices and more connected to our families. Develop some interests outside of Oracle. Heck, develop some interests outside of "tech". Something that requires/allows you to interact with living, breathing humans -- face to face. Something that allows you to feel the wind and sun on your face (there's an app for that - it's called "go outside", and it doesn't cost a download or a subscription fee. Amazing!). Something that allows you to spend uninterrupted time enjoying something beautiful for the sheer joy and beauty of it.

          Years ago, when digital pagers were becoming de rigour, John Dvorak wrote a piece for PC Magazine, pointing out just how few people really needed one. ER doctors were among the few exceptions, just to give some perspective.

            The thing about tablets is they aren't very good for content creation, unless they have a keyboard. Phones also aren't so good, they have such small interfaces everything winds up being twitterfied, not a great way to have technical discussions.

            API's are easy. Getting people to create good technical content, including smart questions, is hard.

                  To keep in touch with those I want, I use facebook and email.

                  Oracle is my business... not my life.
                  Whilst I like a lot of the great guys (and gals boneist ;) ) on these forums for their technical ability and expertise, this isn't a 'social' forum (even if we do have a laugh about something every now and then), so I have absolutely no desire to be connecting to OTN from anything other than my works browser.

                    The more people get 'connected', the LESS able they are to manage their time. They are not willing to turn off their device, and more importantly, they are not able to ignore the 'incoming' signal. And they get so addicted to it (why do you think they call them 'Crackberry') that if the don't get an incoming signal every five minutes, they are checking to see if they missed it.

                    And if someone is one of those rare individuals who can ignore or turn off their device (manage their time), then what would be the point of such an app? The very nature of it, the very existence of it, is to feed the person who cannot or will not manage their time.

                    The very existence of flamethrowers proves that some time, somewhere, someone said to themselves, "You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I'm just not close enough to get the job done." (George Carlin)
