    These are the sample insights:
    - ATM maching
    - Money transfer
    - Internet accounts
    - Internet banking
    - Internet shopping malls
    - Cellphone Network provider - specifically wire tapping our calls

      Overall, technology can be trusted.  There will always be the odd failure or glitch, but we're getting good at making things that work.  Except Windows, of course.

      On the other hand, you should trust the people providing the technology about as far as you can throw them.  Plus, there will always be thieves, modifying that tech for their own purposes.  Card readers at the ATM for example.

        Thanks for your views but there are many people who lost a lot of money from this new technology. What do you think about that?

          Not sure what you refer to.  The dot com collapse?  But that wasn't the fault of technology - that was from the stupidity of investors going crazy over business "opportunities" that actually had little to do with technology.

            I agree with you there. Do you believe technology will make us more comfortable in the future?

              From the use of fire (at one time very "high tech") to now, nearly all technology has been used to increase comfort for humanity.  Even the atomic bomb, being used now to generate electricity, does.

          Those people should use common sense and learn how to use Adblocker, NoScript, Ad-Aware, and Malwarebytes.

      People can't be trusted, not all, and not technology.

        Somehow, you are right. But why do you think so?

          We are for the most part responsible for our actions. While some bad behavior/actions are due to psychological trauma and abuse like that, most of the time people commit acts and they use technology that are detrimental to others like hacking, nuclear, killings people by the use of biological weapon of mass destruction etc. smile

      Technology should be trusted as we are living in such an era where nothing is possible without technology. Though it has some bad sides, when think of its advantages we cannot live without it.
