Technology is growing. The gadget or gizmo you bought yesterday, is out of date. With technology growing every minute of everyday, surely, there has to be a bright future for technology. Right? Well, sure. Nowadays, you can't walk 5 feet without some form of technology being close or even attached to you. For instance, nearly 91% of adults in the United States alone have some form of a mobile cellular device, such as the iPhone. Furthermore, Four out of Five children have a phone by the age of 11.
Let's go back 10 years. Not nearly as many people owned a mobile cellular device. My point is, every minute of every day, somebody purchases or uses a new piece of technology. So, with all that in mind, is it possible that technology will "Turn against us" as some people would describe?
Well, Maybe not turn against us, but at least have a decline? Of course there's a possibility. In the past 12 months, I've heard about studies declaring that mobile phones have the ability to cause cancer, through the radiation they emit. Now, if this were to be proven, and proven to be dangerous for the average consumer, some people would be burning our beloved iPhones & Android devices. But would burning a "Few" Mobile phones really affect the technology statistics I mentioned earlier? Well of course, If you go and ask nearly any average consumer, "What is technology" they'll automatically say "Computers" or "Mobile phones". Surely, it would affect technology.
That being said, this catastrophic event seems unlikely, at least in the near future. So for the most part, we're all safe and the future for technology looks bright.
