Technology has given us advantages that are very helpful, but humans do not know moderation. we tend to push things farther then needed. Technology is something that does have the power to destroy us and how we depend so much on it, it eventually will. We give it that power and it may not destroy us in all those stupid movies where the robots suddenly turn bad this may not be true but it will destroy by either completely disconnecting the world or by killing the planet. Not all technology is bad such as chairs and pencils but technology like smartphones, tablets and laptops can be because we are abusing it.

Technology is beneficial to the human society, in many ways it is like having all the answers right next to you. Technology has helped the police locate criminals, educated children, find shops and for that occasion of playing a few games. If you think about it, phones and ipods are a everyday need for calling work mates or doing online shopping. Technology is building society more than wrecking it.

Technology has connected us rather than destroyed us. We can share our past, enrich our present and expand our futures through the use of social media. Skype and Google hangouts are great ways to connect with friends, family or co workers near and far. Texting, calling, and e-mailing have revolutionized the way we keep in touch and these forms of communication only continue to advance. http://www.ercsms.com...

Secondly, technology allows us to find creative alternatives and innovations to using nonrenewable and costly resources. From hybrid vehicles to energy efficient light bulbs, there are ways to save everywhere. One machine can do today in minutes what in years past would have taken days to accomplish.

The advancement of medicine and medical treatments has saved many lives and prevented many illnesses. Even the simple act of dialing 9-1-1 or 0-0-0 is made possible because of technology! It is almost impossible to ignore and even harder to avoid technology’s impact in our everyday lives.

Technology has helped us be united as one and is one of the key features to help us catch crime. We can take pictures of number plates, have a web cam on our car (front and back), we can pick up the phone and call for help, we can type into Google maps to know where we are going and many more amazing benefits all thanks to technology.

There is even proof that robots will become parts of our lives, already successful with the robot frame. The robot frame is when there is metal around the outside of the human leg to help the person to walk. It is generally used if the human has had an accident or a leg injury. http://blogs.wsj.com... shows that robots will help us. So technology is certainly beneficial to our society.

Overall, if it weren't for technology we wouldn't be as social, as prepared for crime, as strong and we certainly would have a lot more deaths than if we didn't have technology. Technology allows you to search up valuable information for an injury, education, a recipe or a friends contacts. Technology is certainly helping our society!

The art challenges the technology, and the technology inspires the art.
