What Technology Wants:

We don’t find happiness in more gadgets and experiences. So do find happiness in having some control of our time and work, a chance for real leisure, in the escape from the uncertainties of war, poverty, and corruption, and a chance to pursue individual freedoms — all of which come with increased affluence.

It’s interesting to think of how many people spend all their increase in affluence/money on more gadgets and not on purchasing more freedom of their time.
