I AM BEGINNING to wonder if this high tech revolution isn’t beginning to take on some of the aspects of the infamous French Revolution.
We are plunging into high tech at such a frantic pace that new innovations and inventions are starting to look like their own worst enemies.
Forget what is happening in the cell phone/computer/I pad/smart phone arenas. Products that are outdated before most users can figure out how they work. Look at what is happening to a staple in our lives, automobiles. We have added new technology before it can be made reliable. I see where there is another recall of 1.67 million cars due to defects, this one by Toyota. I’ve lost count on how many millions of cars, many luxury or near luxury brands that have been recalled in the last few years. Almost all of them because of some technology flaw or failing, costing money and in some cases injury and even death.
Forget the lack of personal interface, the loss of manners, and the ability to communicate rationally. Forget the loss of mathematics skills or the lack of privacy issues. Lets just continue to guillotine common sense and press on with a higher tech of high tech.
