Ian Somerhalder Compares Technology to a Disease

Ian Somerhalder Compares Technology to a Disease

Ian Somerhalder and Sophia Bush hold up their letter tiles while competing in the first-ever live Words with Friends tournament on Thursday (September 10) in Burbank, Calif.

The 36-year-old Vampire Diaries actor’s team won the charity tournament and a $5,000 prize was donated to the ASPCA.

Ian recently spoke to CNET about the power of technology and he compared it to a disease.

“The amazing thing about the tech world, when you look at, say, social networking and social media, is that they allow us to transfer information literally at the snap of a finger,” Ian said. “However, we’ve become so reliant on tech that we no longer rely on each other.”

“When you look down at your phone and it says 3G [service], and you say, ‘Oh, my God, it’s just 3G,’ that is a disease. That is a 21st-century disease,” he continued. “That is not a good thing that we get so impatient. That trickles down to how impatient we are with our animals, with our kids, with our teachers, with people in traffic.”

    I’m surprised he never dated Sophia Bush. They seem like they would be good together.

    FM over AM. Cable over broadcast. High speed over dial-up. High Definition over Standard Definition. The struggle continues.
