Use your gadgets to get rid of your gadgets

Upfront--I have no idea what any of this means. I have no cell, no tablet, no iPod, a cheeseball MP3 only.

But--according to the WSJ, Joanna Stern, July 30, 2104, you can use your devices to get away from your demanding devices.

Say you want to be on vacation. You can set your laptop to signal you when 30 mins is up. Close it!

Same for the phone--use parental control buttons. Have an annoying sound go off. Try Parental Timelock--a buck ninety-nine.

Or try an app that locks kids out--only lock yourself out after a time period.

Block timesuckers like FB and Insty.

Then what? Books? Yes, they still have those.

Talking to people?

I suppose--if you are desperate.
