Milton relied more on his computer and yet he found it difficult to find an ideal girl without the help of Joe. The prediction that Asimov had of computers having human characteristics that include thinking like humans and being our memory chips was right. One could truly say he was a medium in evaluation to what is happening in today’s society. Humans have lost the power to reason and technological devices have played a major role in killing common sense and human interactions. A day without a technological device for many will be tragic as people have organized and live their lives through their portable technological devices.
This article focuses also on the idea of creating a new way of learning tasks that help students with their higher order thinking. Technology creates new ways to help the students learn. Technology will never get worse in the future infact it will get

Amazon itself created what in some forms is a new form of shopping. Well maybe not a new for but a way to make online shopping even easier without being online necessarily. Wayne Rash acknowledges the device known as the Amazon Echo changes the whole concept of online shopping.
The first reason listed by Jillian Mourning in her article is just that. Students are actively engaged in what they are doing when they are manipulating the technology to the desires of their teacher. A well designed lesson around the use of technology can use its inquisitive nature to help push student participation. Active engagement is what allows students to have their natural desires to know or learn something come from themselves. This internal drive will create lifelong learners and will lead to more engaging lessons in the future.
Distraction, an issue that prevents someone from giving full attention to something else, happens to everyone, every day whether it is realized or not. Multitasking, the handling of more than one task at the same time by a single person, also an everyday issue that most people do not even think about being an issue to their everyday life, but little do they know without this type distraction they could get forty percent more of their work done. Distraction is everywhere, and with distraction comes multitasking, this combination is something that should be avoided if possible. Focusing on one task has been the biggest issue with the creation of the internet and smartphones.

Without phones and computers, people's work would be disorganized and a lot of people, all over the world, would not have a job due to the fact that millions of humans around the universe work on computers.

Today imagining our world without computer and computer dependent devices is near to impossible. We find these almost everywhere. They have become a necessity and majority of the large-scale work happens by these. Computers are used for selling/buying shares, running a company, finances, writing books, act as a source of information and are now also replacing the television and radios as they can entertain people by music, movies and games and the list continue. But what makes all of this
The spread of technology and information caused people to have ideas and start experimenting. The printing press lead to a scientific change, because now people could record what worked and what didn't and test new ideas. In my opinion, the Renaissance could never have occurred without being able to spread ideas throughout cities and countries. Without knowledge, you can't get far, so the printing press has to be on of the most important inventions. Also, the printing press made it easy for people to record activities and ideas.
Today adults see kids on their phones and say, “Kids aren’t able to do anything but be on their phones.” Unfortunately to a point they are right. They spend too much time on their devices that it becomes addicting, which results in life changes. Technology has been a big part of our life that we have relied on.
