Technology Has Changed Human Lives

"The real problem is not whether machines think but whether men do." - B. F. Skinner, an American psychologist, author, inventor and social philosopher. The way technology has impacted our lives is evident in every walk of life. Human mind has achieved everything by the power of imagination. Man has ushered in an age dominated by revolutionary technological developments.

Albert Einstein once quoted, "Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world." From the day of landing on moon to a trip to Mars, from the introduction of Microsoft Windows to the inception of 3G and 4G technologies, from tape-recorders to Apple iPods, from landline phones to latest smart phones, from the origin of World Wide Web to Web 2.0*and Web 3.0 technologies, from Internet Search Engines to addictive social networking websites, from blogging to internet shopping, computer technological developments have impacted our lives in a way that it is almost impossible to imagine this world, without their presence!

Depending on the way of usage, is technology beneficial or harmful to society? We need to analyze it keeping in view how has technological developments shaped our lives over the decades. It is the question where you need to look at both aspects of development in technology. While it has made our lives amazingly simpler and easier with anything at just a mouse click away, it has created several negative health impacts, psychological problems and stress in daily life.
