Our glorious MyBroadband staff writer had his wisdom teeth removed this week, which meant a day and a half of lying around having to find ways to keep entertained that didn’t involve his mouth.
When days are dark, friends are few – and it was technology that got him through this tough time.
Netflix and GTA V–both via PS4–kept his spirits up as he tried to swallow soup while not dribbling on himself.
Technology also meant he could communicate with the outside world – his colleagues asking me why he was “taking so long at the dentist”, and when he expected to return.
Yes, if there is something you can rely on to make you happy, it’s great tech and gadgets.
