    Does that include the usage little red dots below the "word" technilogy, or only recent developments in the technological industry? :D

    Um, yes :rolleyes:

    I start to develop hives if I go 36 hours without spending some quality time with my iBook.

    I'm even taking it camping next week.

    I dont suffer from any kind of DDS... just because I went backpacking 3 weeks ago and just happen to have a portable DVD player and solar charger in my backpack doesn't mean a thing.

    Mmm, technically it would be "damn it, damn it, damn it", but it might also be expressed as "dammit, dammit, dammit". The latter is not in the Apple spellchecker either, if I remember.

    Technilogy is hard, isn't it?

    No no.. as a long time Forum poster and short time mod (another forum) I constantly wish for a shortcut button or auto-spell checker. I cannot spell to save my life.

    Guys, go read the article, DDS is not what happens when you are without technology... it's what happens when you depend on a device that you have no idea how to use. Anyone working in an office will see this daily. So, if you have DDS with your Mac, it means you don't know how to use it...

    You're right!!!

    May we say that MS has a DDS monopoly as well?

    Damn! People are suffering outthere ... People could start a sue against MS because of that :p

    No, I don't have DDS, I use Mac ;)

    Of Course

    I have to have technology. Especially my eMac and iSight. Safari is how I get my news because I rarely watch TV. Anyhow, yes...I am a sufferer of this syndrom that plagues millions across the world each and every day.
