    Log out for life in the slow lane

    Life, Usnisa Sukhsvasti, Published on 05/10/2015

    » It's quite amazing how dependent we are on technology. The other day, the internet was down at the office, making life quite miserable for those working on a deadline. My emails were not coming through, I couldn't download pictures, and I couldn't use Google to check facts. Only the spinning icon seemed to be working.
