    Do you believe that technology has improved our lives, or hindered them?

    As an IT guy I can see all the good that has come out of technology; our lives are easier, we can spend more time with family, etc. But I am old enough to see where it is hurting us as well; some people can't remember anything because they have it in their phone, some people can't do math without a calculator, and worst of all, I feel it is making a lot of us lazy. Which can have serious impacts on our health.

    What do you think?

    I have actually wrote a hub on this. In short, technology can ruin relationships. We are too available nowadays, and as a result don't spend enough time with those who really matter!

    I believe it has hindered them more than improved them.  Families do not know how to communcate face to face with each other; the family unit is getting fragmented-mom taking Sally to gymnastics, dad simultaneously taking Billy to soccer, etc.; people do not know how to think for themselves (like you mentioned); few people know where butter comes from, much less how to make there own; we have the most sophisticated medical diagnostic equipment, but people are not being treated any more effectively- yet there are plants growing right outside that can heal very serious conditions; we are under more stress with all the electronics beeping at us for attention.
    Overall, I think modern technology has fragmented our bodies, souls, and spirits.
