Technology, no doubt, make us a little lackadaisical ; however, technology does great things like enhancing our experience as related to science and helping us come to important conclusions quicker.
Technology makes us a slight bit lazy. No doubt about that. I mean we have calculators, cars that drive by themselves and phones that do absolutely everything we could ever need them to do. Every time a new phone or a new generation of a phones comes out I really think to myself, “What more could we possibly need?” but apparently we do need more because something new is put on these phones with each generation. Things like 3D touch and front facing flash with a better camera. Do we actually need these things? I do not think so. I was living fine

I think technology is good, we just have to use it in the right ways. We do not need self driving cars. That is ridiculous.What is so hard about driving a car that you need a machine to do it for you? If someone is going to do that they might as well not even get their license or a car but just call ubers and cabs to take them where they need to go. I mean sure it may be helpful when you have a crying child in the back, maybe you can get the bottle for them really quick while still driving.

I remember being younger and not being able to wait to see my friends because we did not have phones then so every moment we had together was just so amazing to us. We couldn’t for our playdate. We couldn’t wait to get out of school so we could see each other or go to school to see each other and when we were had holidays or vacations and we were away we would come and have things to actually talk about for ours. We could talk about our vacation and what we did while we were away. Now, we don’t even need to do that because you post your pictures online, and you text each other while you are away so when you come together there is
