Why Do Tech-Obsessed Jurors Disobey Judge's Instructions?

A great article in the February 2012 issue of the Rotarian magazine is entitled "Tech savants: Five things you need to know about the gadget generation," authored by Patty Lamberti, a professor at Loyola University Chicago. (LINK is below)  The five things are:

1.  They are blind to technology etiquette.

2. Multitasking is hurting their brains.

3. They dislike conversing face to face.

4. Their only news comes from Facebook.

5.  Life without technology leaves them depressed and anxious.

Numbers one and five as she expands on them in the article explains a lot about misconduct by younger jurors.
