Well, technology is a general statement (wheels are technology) so I am assuming you mean the still-broad category of electronics. It is true, electronics are very much a part of our lives and is in almost everything. However, in the way of computers, TVs, iPhones, and iPods, no, it isn't. While they are important, they are often not used. Some people let it take them over but on average, I don't believe it has taken over completely. THe reason I answered yes: Since you said taking over, it is in the process for many. Not all people are being taken over but on average, yes, I think it is. I went on a retreat with friends and everyone but three of us had their phones out and were only social about 70% of the time.
