genConnect Lifestyle Expert Maura Thomas warns us of all the technological distractions we should be on the lookout for while at work – whether it be on your iPhone, other mobile device or desktop computer.

Thomas lists Twitter, Facebook and other social applications, e-mail, and other “attention thieves” that threaten to lower our productivity at work.
