Technology does not make us happy (probably!)

Incredible essay from Brian Lam at The Wirecutter, sparked by a study about how technology might not be making us happier.

Happiness is the most important metric in personal technology. If it improves lives, it is important. I've always suspected that sitting around on the internet was a sort of rot, but I had no proof until I read this piece on the Stanford study. I just don't know why this research isn't getting as much attention from reporters as new iPads, CEO changes, earnings reports, acquisitions, and other bullshit that only affects the greedy. People think I'm crazy for complaining about tech news and how stupid and boring the mass media internet has become, but I think they're wrong.

Am I doing it wrong?
