Modern technology has shortened the distance between cultures, and made the world smaller. People can travel or migrate from one place to another very quickly.

Over the last fifty years, technology has become a particularly important source of knowledge in modern society, which has further provided several new opportunities in doing so. Throughout our history, the extensive amount of books were our predominant source of knowledge. That is why Bradbury was wrong to fear that modern technology would replace books.

Technology Dependance Modern technology will soon become a complication instead of an advantage. The creation of technology that performs humanlike tasks properly, if not better, can reverse the roles of both the controller and what is being controlled.

Through the use of advanced technology, social interaction has severely reduced in terms of face-to-face conversations. Without a change in the “improvements” of technology, our future lives will have a negative outcome. To start, our futures are at risk of being dictated by self-operating technology due to the pace at which technology is advancing. Blinding, humans have set a trap for themselves by installing technology in cars that mimic human behavior . According to the author of Our Future Selves and former Google CEO, Eric Schmidt,“ Rather than testing the biological limits of human drivers with thirty-hour trips, the computer can take over primary responsibility…” (230).
