I strongly disagree. I've been in the IT field for 20 years and you would think I wouldn't be able to live without Internet, yet my current house is in a very poorly serviced area so I haven't had Internet at home for about 4 years. After a couple months of withdrawals, I got used to it and became much more productive with my home projects. I also save a boatload of money by not having a data plan on my phone. (Seriously don't know how people can justify spending ~$100 just to have Internet on their phones.)
Also, get off my lawn!
