First off, a computer in every home does seem to be a plus.
Overuse seems to be a minus as are the kids who sit there and fall victim to inappropriate websites, unfortunately some less than desirable adults, too.
Then the mobile phone, what a curse in the wrong hands and ears, a traffic hazard, a hazard to kids and babies to the irresponsible parents who yap yap yap, about nothing really and put theri babies and children at risk while they cross busy intersections and to the elderly who can barely cross the road even with a walking stick, who keep on talking instead of watching what they are doing while they cross.
All of these are a threat to themselves and others, mindless, is the only way to describe them or more simply, stupid.
But, on the whole society has moved forward as a result of technology. Medicine and research have benefited hugely.
As for movies, in the US they no longer seem to know how to act, the technology attracts the viewers, whereas in England they certainly do know how to act, what a delight.
The factory floor does not need so many people so fewer and fewer have jobs and job security is a thing of the past, sadly, for so many hard working, unskilled for anything else people who lose their jobs.
And who can fix their own cars, nowadays?
Gone is the old bomb with which young men and boys learned to fix up before they could move on to something better.
We can't turn back the clock, but in many ways that is a shame.
What do you think of modern technology, that is for those who bother thinking at all.
