Technology creates more problems than solutions. Discuss

Extracts from this document...


´╗┐Technology has inevitably created a porthole for humans to embrace and indulge in, offering endless possibilities. There has been much speculation that while it has satisfied our social needs and offered a more convenient lifestyle, it has simultaneously created more problems than good.
