By including the source from which he derived these statistics, Gilbert could create a more trustworthy evidence and help convince the audience. As the argument progresses, the author uses articles from the New York Times as well as another Daily Beast article when discussing the background of the topic. These evidences are not very authoritative because they come from articles that might have bias. Both the New York Times, and the Daily Beast can be opinionated, so taking sources from less biased and more firsthand sources would be more reliable. The author also employs quotes from the protestors to support his opinion.
There are some exceptions. The Han dynasty had a positive attitude towards technology, and most of the Romans had negative opinions on the role of technology in the society. The only exceptions were Seneca, a philosopher who hoped to advance the mind, and Frontius, a water commissioner promoting his own technology. If I had documents that showed how the legal codes of Rome and the Han, I could better explain how the systems of administration in the two areas varied based on the way they treated low-class citizens and the way they treated technology. But solely using the documents provided, it can be reasonably argued that the Han Dynasty promoted technology, therefore creating a better environment for their low-class citizens.
In his essay, Percy communicates well educated people who are also aware of technology’s advantages and disadvantages. He opposes technology’s influence on people. He also opposes people’s influence on other people. Technology has a great influence on people. Almost everyone in the world is distracted by technology.
A big downside about today 's society is that some of them only know how to fight for something they want “behind the screens”, it is easy to start a petition and get people to sign it but the problem with this situation is that people realize how easy it is to sign a petition and can easily fake it. Without protests things would change in a big way and that would easily allow the oppressors to stay in power and silence the people. Technology is a good thing for taking a stand for or against something and calling out flaws in today 's society. Sadly some people aren’t socially aware or are socially aware and shy to speak up about today’s injustices and take a stand against bad things such as: the possible presidency of the wrong people who don 't deserve the privilege of controlling the country and influencing the minds of people with horrible absurd theories about certain identity groups and instill fear and hatred in the minds of people. Such things can be affected by technology which can influence the people towards making the right people popular and standing up for their ideas and not letting the

Technology plays a very prominent role in today’s society. In fact, the most apparent characteristic of American culture seems to be its reliance on technology, which is supported by the frequency in which the average American uses certain devices. Smart phones, for example, are often used as alarm clocks, to check emails, send messages and make phone calls, observe traffic in their area, even to do tasks at work. Many argue that this reliance on technology should be viewed negatively because of its certain impacts on society. It is believed that, due to electronic devices and gadgets, people neglect social interaction or are taught to be indolent.
Xiaomi is the most well known company that succeeded by using the copycat marketing. They used Apple as a model and copied Apple’s devices and designs.

According to the book “Copycat Marketing 101”, the author Burke Hedges says that copycat marketing is a great marketing strategy when making products.
From country to country, the spread of pop culture has had its negative effects, formulating decreases in formal language, leading on to potential racial conflicts and generally forming rebellions against this progressive spread of culture and language. However, English specifically has its structural benefits, and he very notion that a large majority of countries are so open to a change in culture and language begs the question as to whether or not this change is in fact beneficial, and is what the world wishes to change into. As change is the only thing constant in life, yet the way in which we change is still debatable. Though a certain amount of influence within countries can be new, exciting, and beneficial to economies, certain courses of action must be taken in the preservation of languages and history to a certain degree. This can be seen with the French organization of “Organization International de la Francophone”, whose general ambition is to benefit the 77 countries that French as on official language, and to sustain and preserve French as a language.
By putting ads in magazines to promote healthy weight and self worth, readers are more aware of these unattainable ideals. Though opposers may add that even if people take away commenting on media sites there will still be pictures provoking unrealistic body types. But, though this may be true, not allowing people's negative input on these pictures will be beneficial to boost ones’ confidence. As stated by Kevin Wallsten, a Berkeley graduate focusing on political science says: “anonymous comments are assumed to exert a strong influence over Internet users. The number of effects attributed to anonymous comments is long and varied.
Historian Daniel J. Boorstin once said, “Technology is so much fun, but we can drown in our technology. The fog of information can drive out knowledge”. Boorstin believes that technology is fun and is helpful to society, but technology can be overused and can take over our knowledge, which can take over our thoughts, feelings, and emotions. Nowadays most people prefer reading online rather than reading a print book, which has changed our society today in numerous helpful, yet hazardous ways. Ray Bradbury’s novel, Fahrenheit 451 interprets what our society will be later on due to the overuse of technology, and the lack of reading print books.
Digital technology has completely changed the world for the good and the bad. The disadvantage that technology has brought and will bring in the future is that people will rely on it too much. Books are becoming non-existent, people are not communicating face to face, we are no longer using paper and pencils, and social media is taking over the world. However, it is up to the adults to monitor and limit the use of computers, T.V., mobile phones and video games. The advantages to technology is important dealing with education because it can promote new and fun ways someone to learn and easier access to researching
According to the article, the internet has led to a lot of superficiality in the way people think. Carr argues that this not only undermines the richness of life and sense of self, but it has adverse effects on deep thinking in the long run. Carr asserts that the human brain is very different from computer hard drives and refrigerators that can be stuffed with information or items. On the contrary, Carr argues that the human brain expands and that, “the more things one remembers, the more interesting your thoughts are likely to be” (Carr
The internet along with many other technological advances has brought humanity a long way. Like with all change, there are positive outcomes as well as negative outcomes, and while having information at our fingerprints and obtainable within seconds might be a positive thing, there are still going to be some negative results. Nicholas Carr’s 2008 article published in The Atlantic, “Is Google Making Us Stupid?,” explains what Carr believes to be some of the negative effects that the usage of the Internet has brought upon us. Carr believes that the Internet is shaping the way that we think and that humans are losing the ability to read long pieces of writing. The purpose of his ironically long article is to convince his readers that the Internet is actually changing the way that we think and interact and to shed light upon something that many people experience, but they might have not realized it yet.
In both the story and our modern day society technology has been dangerous when it comes to the government 's. It is mostly used for “our benefit” but what we don’t realize is that higher power sometimes does take advantage of it. For example wire-tapping or surveillance cameras in our society, and in the brave new world 's society it is used to make who the people are such as their looks and personality. It might not be exactly the same, but our society could one day end up like theirs when it comes to the use of technology. Lastly is Huxley 's idea that “everyone belongs to everyone”.
