Advantages and Disadvantages of Technology

            Albert Einstein once said, "It has become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity." Even though he was referring to atomic bombs, his point is still valid. We are becoming slaves to our own technology and it is happening faster than we can comprehend. Technology has now became an essential part of our lives and we cannot live without it. Our rapidly advancing technology is limiting and crippling our society's inhabitants. We live in a high tech world, and the more advanced technology becomes, the more it seems to have control over our lives. It is difficult to imagine a world without technology. Technology have a lot of advantages but it has a lot of negative sides and the negative side can have serious and long-term consequences. As now technology is everywhere, surrounding us, it is stopping us from being ourselves. People who use technology have lack of bonds with others leading to isolation. Technology also leads to depression, diseases and wrapped sense of reality. Technology causes pollution that leads to natural destruction.
             Social isolation is characterized by a lack of contact with other people in normal daily living, such as, the workplace, with friends and in social activities. We isolate ourselves by walking around in our own little world. With technology we our creating our own little world and we keep ourselves away from others, "little worlds."

(134) in the book Feed, the people had their own bubbles with their own Sun and seasons. .
             All this leads to isolation. The use of online social media outlets causes us to meet face-to-face with much less frequency resulting in a lack of much needed social skills. We can see that today, as Google Glass by Google is the first entry in the wearable tech market.
