While this article is trying to make it sound like technology can ruin Christmas, the truth is, it's actually dumb people ruining everything. Every one of the stories listed in this article are errors on the part of the end user, NOT technology.

While Bethany Howell napped on the couch last week, her daughter Ashlynd, 6 years old, used her mother’s thumb to unlock her phone and open the Amazon app. "$250 later, she has shopped for all her Christmas presents on Amazon," said Ms. Howell, of Little Rock, Ark.

"No, Mommy, I was shopping," Ms. Howell said her daughter told her.
