    This is a huge question - the answers are rapidly changing almost as swiftly as the technology itself!

    I think there are fundamental pros and cons such as:

    * ease of communication versus over reliance/obsession
    * opportunities for learning and earning versus hacking/stealing/plagiarism
    * democratic potential and use for all versus exploitation
    * creation of manufacturing jobs versus waste/pollution
    * help in emergencies versus fear of freedom
    * freedom to express versus legality of same
