How to use technology to make you smarter

http://ideas.time.com/2012/11/29/how-to-use-technology-to-make-you-smarter/

Some interesting things from this:

-Kids who use abbreviations more in texting scored higher on literacy tests because they were better able to make connections since when you use those abbreviations you need to have an idea of what they actually sound like

-Emails make you way dumber than you think

It’s interesting how in the day and age we live/work in today we perform a lot of our activities without giving active thought to how they are affecting us. This stretches from privacy to mental capabilities.
