“On my days out in the city, when I get to observe people in public spaces such as restaurants, parks, and trains, I tend to think that we have developed a collective addiction to technology. I myself find it hard to go through a day without going online to see my Facebook feed or to read the news from across the globe. There is no denying that technology has contributed to the quality of life we lead nowadays. Just think about the knowledge in store for us online. At no other point in time was knowledge so accessible as it is nowadays. Keeping in touch with my relatives in Australia is much easier now that I have Skype and do not have to nervously watch on the clock while talking to them over the phone, so as not to get a high phone bill.”
Technology has become an integral part of the life of 21st century. There is no denying that. Given its presence in our everyday lives, it is no wonder that there are advancements in the field every now and then.
