We can never imagine a world without computers now they are a part and parcel of the life.. likewise all the devices have become a part of our life....

hi, I don't believe so and instead, I think we are the master of these technology advances in most cases. see? We decide how to write a computer program, we manipulate the modern machines and engines. If talking about slavery, I think many of us are becoming the slaves of money including myself.

magic, I would love to contradict your response. You see, a computer programme is written by only a handful of people. The others are absolutely dependent on the programme for everyday use. General public cannot make a microwave or a cell phone but we are absolutely dependant on them. I think you see my point. So we are infact becoming technology's slave.

I think eventhough people make a decision not fall in the trap of technology they are forced to follow it.. In some offices if u dont know how to use a certain software u are fired..... Your job is given to someone else.. I think we are being forced to use the technology

hi madug..... you made a point there....... we are becoming too dependent on technology that we couldn't function normally anymore when our microwave is broke, or when we leave our cellphone in the house, or when we don't have heat dryer.... they never had that in the ston-age yet they survived
