Technology has taken over

The other day we got a new car:)! Yeah. I felt like I was on the "Prices is Right". My husband I did not expect to be able to get a new car. Thank you to whoever is looking out for us because our prior vehicle was heading toward a major repair. When at last we were able to get in our new car, which is all tricked out with latest technology. My poor husband got this deer in the head lights look when the salesmen started explaining it to us. Fortunately, I'm pretty dialed into the cyber world. Still, it's a few days later and I'm still working on getting it all worked out. I feel bad for my husband. I'm like what if I get sick? He won't know what to do. When is an enough, enough with all the technology? I know they are looking to have self-driving cars, all electric. What if that self-driving car decides to start going a hundred miles an hour and you can't stop it? I do like the cyber world there have been wonderful things that have come from it but still it needs to have its place. I have started giving myself a techno detox day. I still have a landline in my home. I still read real books not eBooks or audible books. What about you? Do you techno detox or are you all jacked into the Matrix? Thanks for stopping by

I've got a landline telephone and read real books. I use a mobile phone and an electronic reading device only when I go away on holiday.

Well, if we use technology it good for us but if we misuse of technology it will be bad for us, so it depends on how we use it

We are so alike! Congratulations on the new car. We got rid of one due to the over 2250 computerized things to learn. Our last new car had a tech service to help us and all we wanted was a simple radio. We have a landline, get the newspaper delivered, and only read paper books. I only downloaded a few books for reading on vacation.

Thank you, great minds think alike. If I could get a nice older car that you rolled the windows down by yourself I would. lol Thankfully we were able to get this car. Good luck with what's happening on your side. I have lived in some undesirable places when I was younger. It's no fun.

@DearAphrodite I would be happy with a simple car from the old days. Unfortunately, they now cost a fortune!. Enjoy your car. Thanks.

Technology can be good or bad. It all depends on how we use it. Yes, it can go too far. I think that if they do only make driverless cars then the cars should be more like an armored tank.
