God bless this laptop: London vicar welcomes techies

The Rev. Canon David Parrott blesses computers and mobile phones on the altar of the St. Lawrence Jewry Church in London Jan. 11.

The what: A venerable British church has done what e-mail addicts and workaholics have been doing for years — invoking the Almighty's blessing on their high-tech gadgets.


Blessing the tech?

We often hear a deity's name invoked regarding some piece of technology, most often a stapler in my case. However, a blessing is rarely what the petitioner seeks.

More often, it's simply a devine danging that the person has in mind.
