I think that we have become too dependent. Of course we should use what we have, but we should be prepared for when we no longer have them, which is something nobody does or teaches their kids anymore. I'm 17, so I'm still a kid, but my dad taught my how to navigate, for example, and I still use Google Maps when I need to find a new location because it's easier. But, I know that I could find the location without it.
Of course we should use the best tools, but I think that we should also learn to go without if necessary. And, in that sense, yes, we have largely become too dependant
I have to agree with this because we can't navigate cities without a GPS, learn how to use a good old fashion map and compass to navigate through the wilderness, or learn how to use the arguably reliable sextant to use celestial bodies to find out where we are in the world without a GPS. Humanity has to learn to find alternatives from electronics when it isn't into our reach, or it becomes a crutch.
Get dependent on a dictionary app...
You spelled society wrong ******. Look, if you think we're too dependant on electronics then ha! We haven't seen nothing yet, technology is still on the rise and dependency will still incrementally increase. Eventually high technology will be a component to our very evolution.
The same applies for the first motor vehicles and airplanes and even spears and knives... They are all dangerous and susceptible to bad manipulation or malfunction... But I think it would be better to focus on how to improve and better secure our tools, rather than refrain from using them and revert back in time
Yes, people want to have driverless cars and they let phones control their lives and what they don't understand is that technology is not reliable and it crashes and get's hacked!
It looks to me that the natural way is for humans to keep expanding their imagination and to keep coming up with unprecedented inventions anyway.
Human society has always depended on technology to develop, from tools made of rocks and wood to artificial intelligence... One can argue that almost all forms of technology have their downsides and associated harms, but no one can deny how essential they are for our progress and - a priori- survival.
We leaving in times of change, technology evolution and influences the human life in a great manner. Product advancement increased the dependence of human life on electronics. Offcourse we belive technology make's human life easier and comfort.It has jelledup with humans in such way, irrespective of ages and continents with an immensely. But at the same time we loosing human conscience relationships,because of the regular usage it Makes us an introvert. A mobile phone is good enough example, we unable to remember our own siblings contact numbers. It shows the depending on a gadget. This generation has failed to do Natura biological Functions as our ancestors performed because of too much usage of electronic gadgets. As on date our communication 50%through phones,email,message,sharing opnions on social networks,we are active more on electronic networks than human society.This leads to hypocrisy life which is away of natural way. Future genration has lot more challenges to face by incresing the usage, such as health issues.
By what measure is "Society" too dependent of electronics, what would be the "right" dependence on electronics?
Electronics are a tool, it would be the same as saying we're too dependent on the printing press, too dependent on shoes, jackets, etc... If there is a better way of performing a task, why not use the superior tool? Should we all be using typewriters instead of computers?
