How often do we become distracted by technology; whether it is by immediately viewing a new text message or clicking on email pop-ups that appear on our screen? 

Tristan Harris' Ted Talk suggests that we  treat our phones like slot machines constantly refreshing our popups/emails to see 'what we have won.'  Being in the recruitment game, the probability of myself becoming distracted is very high.    

Do you agree with what is said in this Ted Talk that better designed technology will reduce the probability of becoming distracted?
