Funny how every few decades the definitive "This new ___________ technology will be the end of civilization!!!" rant comes out - dating back what, 100 years?"

The telegraph of 1897 was a "tool of the devil" and its ability to instantly send information will overwhelm the morale human mind...

...At least that's what the the owners of then then lucrative Pony Express letter service wanted us all to think.

P.S.

"...These companies make it easy for you to snack on their content..."

Snack on their content? Ummm...ew.
