In the past few decades, we have seen technology develop in ways we have never imagined. We have seen technology go from a original computer that weighed 1,000 lbs, whether you want to take that literally or not, to a Mac. Now technology has gone slim, and light as a feather. Technology was been made for leisure, but also for good. The technology that has been developed has done wonders for example in the medical field. Technology is everywhere, but is it too much?
A few years ago, cell phones were considered the among the top form of technology. Being able to call someone was from the palm of your hand, where ever you were, felt like the greatest thing on earth. Now phones are much smaller, and they are rarely used as a phone. Take a second to think, how many phone calls have you made today? Now think, how many text messages have you sent today? Did you update your face book status from your phone or your computer just now?
Technology could be used for good or bad, in all sorts of forms. There have been studies that technology has lowered kids and teens IQ's. Whether that is true or not, people are just viewing technology as a bad thing. Yes,video games, watching TV, and cell phones are addictive, I am addicted to all three, but technology is used for good as well. We take for granted the good things that come out of technology. The everyday things that we do involve technology. There are endless possibilities to technology and where it goes from here, it will help others, and make this world a better place. We as a society need to make sure we use technology for good, for example texting while driving.
