Technologies can be a double-edged sword. They make life easy on the one hand, take away our lives on the other hand.
Just look at the technologies around us now, from TV to computer to cell phone. TV certainly has informed, entertained and educated us for many decades. The use of computer and cell phone have benefited our lives in more ways than we can count.
In turn, each new technology is also a new distracter, grabbing our attention and providing more excuse for us to delay doing what we should do.
They also hurt us by taking away our precious time when we sit for hours in front of a TV set or on the Internet or cell phone chatting.
They pose a new challenge to anyone who wants to get more things done in the shortest possible time.
