Tech detox: one family's story of a winter unplugged

As technology becomes more prolific, our quality time with our loved ones seems to dwindle.

At least that was the case for Susan Maushart, living in Australia with her family in 2009. Maushart was addicted to her iPhone and her kids were hooked on video games and social media so Susan decided to pull the plug on any devices with a screen and forced her family to cleanse themselves of their tech habits.

Maushart documents her family's detox experience in her new book 'The Winter of Our Disconnect' and talks about it with American Morning's Kiran Chetry.

Apple's Steve Jobs: taking medical leave 'to focus on my health'

He's not telling us exactly why or for how long, but Steve Jobs announced Monday he will be taking a leave of absence from his duties as Apple's Chief Executive to focus on his health.

What Jobs has told us, though, is who will replace him during his leave. Chief Operating Officer Tim Cook will be the man to fill in for the tech legend. Many are worried about Apple's future without Jobs at the helm but Cook has been in this position before; Cook filled in for Jobs during two prior leaves of absence. Those past absences came with Jobs' battle with pancreatic cancer and a liver transplant. Now, many are guessing Jobs' current absence is related to his prior health problems.

T.J. Holmes talks to Leander Kahney, Editor and Publisher of CultofMac.com and Author of "Inside Steve's Brain", about what the future holds for Apple in light of Monday's announcement.
