In the text it states, “Society has improved significantly since the 1960s with new, more advanced technologies, such as cell phones and computers with internet… People can keep in touch and meet new people easier and faster than 50 years ago.

Next, creativity is the driving force of the economy, usually in the form of digital and mobile
The development of technology has become quicker and more efficient. People use technology more in their than ever before. In the book, Technopoly, Neil Postman shares his idea that Technopoly has and will take over society in the future. Not only is there Technopoly but also Tehnocracy.

These devices have provided us an easier life. For instance, we can access a massive amount of information whenever we wish.
Of all the great, new, discoveries made, technology is arguably one of the greatest. Technology is just about anywhere; things that are as small as your phone or as big as the International Space Station. Whether we think it is or not, technology is a big and important part of our lives. Technology has benefited the world around us as well; it has helped us be able to find and send others information faster, make greater scientific discoveries and most of all, it has made life a whole lot easier. We all have questions in our heads that we want answers to.
The study of foreign languages is extremely health to the brain and can have long lasting benefits. Kluger states that “new studies are showing that a multilingual brain is nimbler, quicker, smarter, better able to deal with ambiguities, resolve conflicts and even resist Alzheimer 's disease and other forms of dementia longer.” (Kluger). This could mean that someone who studies a foreign language will then benefit their brain because of it. If this is true, multilingual individuals have a greater chance of living a longer happier life.
This idea can be applied to things such as global corporation operation and global politics or even family communications. It is apparent with these situations, the opportunities for which tasks can be accomplished is quite literally endless. On the other hand, people are now performing tasks (whether they are multitasking or not) at much more quickly than they used to. This might be attributed to the increased pace of life brought on partially by technology.
Globalization has led to prosperity and greater lively-hood for people over the last thirty years (Javidan, 2014). Positive factors include the ability to share knowledge of medicine in nations that have not yet advanced to that point in their careers or supporting a country that went through an economic crisis. This is possible because different nations around the world are more connected to each other. Products are able to be produced at a quicker rate with great quality because of the advancements of technology not only for creating the productions, but for shipping and receiving the products. Jobs are able to expand to every corner of the world because countries are willing to accept new employees with diverse backgrounds and skills, and the number of people being educated today is at an all-time high (Javidan, 2014).

Pleading the Fifth Technology seems to come hand in hand with modernity. It has made most tasks that used to take days to complete much easier. Technology has also improved the channels of communication. The invention of the modern day smart cellphone coupled with social media networking has allowed mankind to be in constant contact with one another from across the globe.

The film is rich with visual metaphors and draws on various Intertextual materials.
