Ever Have A Technological Brain Fart?

You're sitting at work doing your work and the phone rings or you get an email or someone IM's you or you're away from your desk/office and your cell phone rings or someone emails your Blackberry. Or, you're on your way somewhere while listening to your MP3 player, which of course has only your favorite gabillion songs on it, so you're jammin' either in your head or dancing in the streets. You hang up from the call, reply to the email or IM, get back from your meeting, turn off or tune out your MP3 player only to find out you don't know what in the world you were doing or where in the hell you were going before this distraction from technology. BRAIN FART!

Not to say that other things don't sidetrack us, but wasn't technology made to make our lives easier? Now it seems that it just gives us more ways to communicate or entertain ourselves to the point of adding on to the distraction of our once simpler lives?

Man! And to think I don't know what I'd do if I didn't write down my "to do" list in my notebook. Yet, I know some people who can't function without a gadget. How do you keep track of what you need to do?
