USA – Well, it’s official — robots have taken over the country. Not robots like the Transformers or the Terminator, but electronic gadgets that connect you to the web.

iPhones, tablets, and game consoles now outnumber people: 425 million compared to 315 million Americans, according to the NPD Research Group.

So what exactly is all this tech doing for us? Making us smarter? Not so much. In fact, folks would do well to sit down and do some long division once in a while. Try it, your brain will thank you.
