    Exclamation Tragic!

    Woman shakes baby to death

    MIAMI - A FLORIDA woman, angry because her baby's crying was interrupting her game of Farmville on Facebook, has pleaded guilty to murder after shaking the infant to death, a newspaper reported on Thursday.

    Alexandra V. Tobias, 22, of Jacksonville, entered the plea in the January death of three-month-old Dylan Lee Edmondson before Circuit Judge Adrian Soud on Wednesday, the Florida Times-Union said.

    Tobias could face up to life in prison. The newspaper said a sentencing hearing has been scheduled for December.

    The Times-Union said Tobias told investigators she became angry because her baby was crying while she was playing Zynga's FarmVille.

    She said she shook the baby, smoked a cigarette, and then shook him again and that the infant may have hit his head during the shaking.

    Zynga claims more than 230 million monthly active users of its games, which include Mafia Wars, Treasure Isle, Zynga Poker, Cafe World, FishVille and PetVille in addition to FarmVille. -- AFP

    Just like the Korean couple who raise the virtual child but neglect their own flesh and blood

    And the Japanese mother who locked the baby in the car who later passed away due to the heat, to play whatever name is the game (lots of small metal balls)

    These are the ones that are lost in their own "world". Cannot tell the difference between real and virtual anymore . . .

    A very similar issue is gonna happen to iPhone / Windows Phone 7/8/9 / smartphone users soon. See them in MRTs engrossed in it even on the escalators.

    That's why I only listen to music on my Nokia. Good enough.

    Feel its very "sterile" to be obsessed with technology with everything we do nowadays. One really ought to be without the internet, go to somewhere with big open spaces / natural.....no need to be China or what, Indonesia or Malaysia is good enough. Slow down life....
