Do Gadgets Make You Happy?

I like this NYTimes blog about happiness. Our relationship with our personal tech is complicated, but overall, do you think we're better or worse off for being so addicted to our gadgetry?

Does your phone help you remember things you might have forgotten, and take photos of memorable events? Does it piss you off when the screen cracks or when it crashes? Do you hate telecommuting or getting work calls at 11pm? What if we lived like wombats and just ate food and shit and had sex? Does that sound so bad?
