Coming off CES, technology is on the mind of tens of thousands of wonks as well as marketers, brand managers and media executives. They all have one thing in common: the need to tap into technology to be productive on the job. Video conferencing, online project management and other virtual office apps make it easier than ever to bridge geographical divides and get more done during a workday. Still, almost every business transaction boils down to one human being doing something for another; it's an exchange of goods or services older than money itself. But when technology disrupts the humanity at the heart of a business, it's no longer helpful -- it's distracting. Tech can actually take away productivity.
