Technology Isn't Everything
Learning to use it wisely
One day, at the DeMoss home, our high-speed Internet service lost its zip, and we had the good fortune to retain a service technician. The nice man who came to our home set a mystical meter on the box where the street cable connected to our house, and he waited a few minutes. "Ah," he said after a while, in a friendly voice. "Not enough juice coming through this line. No wonder you're getting slow Internet." With a few adjustments, he pronounced us in good shape, packed up his meter box, and drove into the night.
Back in the house, however, our Internet speed was unchanged. The next morning I dialed, er, punched in the cable company telephone number-an office only two miles away-to schedule a quick and easy return visit.
And as it turns out, with all our advancements, life has no rewind.
