How smart are we for owning smartphones? And is there anything that we can do to avoid being completely consumed by our technological cravings?
Imagine my surprise when I found that my little machine was caught up in a swirling conflict involving the SodaStream Corporation, the international NGO Oxfam, Scarlett Johansson and Israeli-Palestinian relations.
Working memory is our ability to process information. We use it to ace the unexpected interview question, to improvise when we leave the notes to our dinner speech at home, and to play in the Super Bowl (well, a few of us, anyway).
Seattle didn't win the Super Bowl just because Pete Carroll is a fun guy. If you want to know how the Seahawks became the NFL's best, you have to look at how their management went back to school.
I'm glad I went -- 80,000 happy and screaming fans reminded me that we watch the game because of what it is, and everything else around it builds and adds to the culture of the whole -- including the half-time show and the ads.
It started back during training camp. While coaches developed game plans and established depth charts, the digital teams for these three front-runners huddled to craft their strategy for an optimistic season.
Jack sobbed the tears that Peyton Manning would have like to for several minutes before his mother told him to come and give her a hug. After a while, he calmed down. He took off his jersey and reverently folded it.

I'll just mention one, which (for me) stood out as the best, and probably got the most attention -- that would be Chrysler's ad with, of all, people, Bob Dylan.
Why does watching the Super Bowl make me feel as if I just survived two weeks of CIA brainwashing at Gitmo?
The term 'redskin' is of the most derogatory in nature, the reality of which most know nothing about. Perhaps this is why, Washington Redskins, the name of a football team in the National Football League, does not disgust and overwhelm at mention.
At roughly $4 million per 30-second slot, this ad never had a chance of making the airwaves during Super Bowl XLVIII. But you should watch it anyway.
From banning sodas larger than 16 ounces to proposals to tax sugary drinks, nothing has succeeded in prying the Big Gulp from Americans' fleshy fingers... until last night.
In a sea of some of the year's best commercials created by some of the world's biggest brands (almost all led by men), GoldieBlox was founded and is run by a female entrepreneur. And the ad was voted in by a popular vote.
Remember the silly SoBe Lifewater dancing lizards of 2008 or the ridiculous 'Where's Herb?' Burger King ads?
Don't get me wrong. I have a great sense of humor. And I believe young people have the right to make fun of body noises. However, we have to question why, yet again, it is the older woman who is selected for the demeaning joke.
