Looking back, technology has provided us with more freedom and less consumption of time and resources. Today, mobile phones are probably the most effective tech out there. It provides us with more than one way to reach a person plus has fun little gadgets along the way. You can also access the internet, which is a pretty big thing, if you ask me. The World-Wide Web literally connects over 700 million people across the globe. Due to the shift in technology, we can learn whatever we want to learn on any topic we want.
Imagine the amount of labor that must have been involved in industrial processes when the invention of tech did not exist. Electronic gadgets have entered homes of people to rescue them from the boredom of daily chores. Imagine the amount of time people must be spending doing household chores during the time there were no machines and household appliances. It's better not imagined. Today is the age of robotics. Machines can learn, adopt new things and perform tasks just like a human would.
It is almost impossible to enlist all the positive effects of technology on society. The fast-advancing technology, has improved the quality of human life. There's less risk, less effort, less mess. There's more freedom, more ease and more speed - all because of that ten-letter word - not a word, a reality - technology.
