Technology is, was, and always will be a gem of our society. Our great grandparents were careful to monitor the use of black and white television watching with their children.

You know your parents cautioned you against watching too much colored TV and playing too many computer games on into the night.
Common Sense is the name of the game. Neither one of these two sentences was created recently.
“Too much of a good thing is no good.”
“Everything in moderation.”
