Every smartphone user isn’t really smart. Technology has connected us with the world but disconnected us from the PEOPLE. In a world of 7.4 billion people, as many as 2.08 billion people are smartphone users. That’s not even a half but it’s a lot. And we are showing no signs to stop ,if we agree with this, then the stats are quite surprising. It is estimated that by 2100, there will be 11.2 billion smartphone users, eye opening. Right?
Yes, technology has helped us in many ways. International calls need no money. Different internet based applications has made things easier. You can listen to international radio, do video calls. Basically it has made communication easier. It has created more jobopportunities and massive amount of jobs in the world economy. You get the latest news instantly. National, international.
But as they say, every coin has two sides.Where are we really going with this technology? Hours of online chatting, but no time to talk to friends or share the real feelings. The thing is, technology has made us indolent. Right? Everyday, every new invention is focused to reduce human labor that is brilliant, but if it has made things easier for us then it has made them too easy, thus, lazy. People are slowly forgetting to do the good old hard work. You don’t need to stand in long queues to buy your movie tickets, you don’t need to ask an actual trainer about your exercises, you don’t need to pull out a dictionary if you want information. It’s all up there in your smartphone.
And if we see, more than half the world has no access to technology. Everything is healthy if it ‘s done in limits. Overdoing anything would have devastating results, surely.We made technology, technology has not made us. Let it not overpower you. Be cautious, be aware of where technology is leading you.
I fear the day that technology will surpass our human interaction. The world will have a generation of idiots. – ALBERT EINSTEIN
