    There was a time when these things did not exist.  Society did survive.  Could it survive once again without these things?  Do members of society know how to survive without them? Are people too dependent on technology?

    Nice question, didn't thought of that, it's a fact that the technological development bring both positives and negatives, if the technological development is beneficial in all respects then it should be considered as a part of human culture just as clothing and food habits. In this Era the survival of society should include the retainment of the technology. So instead of thinking that way we should ponder over the extension of such technology and chalk out strategies to prevent the society from the draw backs of over dependence.

    Just went to Europe where I had very limited cell connectivity. It was hard, because I am so used to using my phone to look up directions, or hours of a store, train schedules, etc. However, if I was out in nature and had no need for those items, I bet I could make it a few weeks before wanting to 'plug back in.'

    I was not bothered when I did not have cell phone and internet before so why would it bother me now. So, I think I can last forever without a cell phone or internet. The internet takes most of my time and I noticed that I am spending less time in the garden which I enjoy doing too due to working on the hubs and browsing the net. I must admit, cell phone - I don't use it much for talking or calling friends.

    I am sure that everyone agrees that the internet has taken over most of our family quality time. Every member of the family is busy looking down on their phones or internet playing games which are not even useful and just a waste of time. Some people are addicted to online games like candy crush or even gambling websites which is not good really. So I think we are better off without these gadgets. Don't get me wrong I like the internet and my phone but it doesn't mean to say I can't live without them, I can.
