There may be an element of truth in it, and does compare with TVs taking over from books leading to lower literacy skills. It's no big deal, and there's nothing to stop people reading books as well as using PCs. Eating properly and exercising regularly is also known to increase IQ. You can probably tell I don't do much of either :(

The "Ask Jack" column in the Guardian seems pretty potent too! Although I wouldn't class it as an unavoidable chore, having never read it.

This line alone suggests to me that the people they picked had no life. I don't know of anyone who has to rush off and check their email, if I did I don't think I'd know them for long!

Absolute rubbish I don't believe that at all, see ya all later folks I'm off to sell the computer to get some pot!

It seems it's less of a risk to your health than using a PC.
