In her contribution to The Guardian, digital media mogul Arianna Huffington expressed her concern about the increasing dependence on technology such as smartphones and tablet PCs.

Huffington, 63, said wisdom is the most important thing to be concerned about, but people don’t because of the “pathological relationship with their devices,” citing Kelly McGonigal, a psychologist.

According to Huffington, smartphones are blocking one’s path to wisdom. She called the symptom “iParadox.”

She added the current generation is “bloated with information and starved for wisdom.”

Huffington is a Greek-American author and a columnist. She is best known for her news website, The Huffington Post, founded in 2005.
