Before the Wertliebs left for the quiet beach vacation they had planned on Martha's Vineyard, the computer issue had to be resolved once and for all. "It was a big decision whether or not to take my laptop," confessed Don Wertlieb, a Boston child psychologist and chairman of the Tufts University child studies department. To his wife's consternation, Wertlieb decided he needed it. "I look forward to no faxes, but I get some anxiety about being out of touch," he explained.
