If it is not intelligence and not necessarily impulse control, then what? Think about the article heading:
Wasting Time Is New Divide in Digital Era
IMO it is so completely dead-on I wonder if the author has realized it.
Any initiative, then, that discourages spending too much time on computer games or tv (e.g. something as simple as time-limit features) should be encouraged if you ask me (you didn't).
Adults who spend time on liquor, gambling, etc. is one thing. But right now very smart people are thinking very hard about how to make products (games, tv-shows etc.) that consume as much of a childs time as possible, and that is what I think is unhealthy, apparently more so for the poor.
