Does Technology Slow Us Down?
August 10, 2015 12:55pm CST
I recently bought a hand lawn mower. To my surprise, this was actually quicker to use to mow the lawn than the electric one I used before. I also find it much quicker and easier to use a wooden spoon to bake mix cakes. A bread maker turned out to be a waste of time. I can't see the point in a smoothie maker win a blender will do. Is it me or are a lot of tech gadgets total time wasters? What do others think?

@Jackalyn hi friend , In fact technology doesn't slow us down , but it turns us in to lazy humans . Technology upgrades are very good in some areas and not as good as they will be when it come to gadgets related to homely uses.Technology turn a human into a smart lazy machine .

I know what you mean. For instance, I bought an onion chopper that didn't save me time, it was messy and cleaning the gadget was a pain. I used it a few times, then toss it aside. I save time by chopping the onion by hand. Then I bought a hamburger electric grill which was a disaster - hamburgers were raw inside and burnt outside. I have better results cooking them in the frying pan.
