Technology has come a very long way and continues to change almost every day. New technology has a strong effect on how humans deal with things. For example, before camera phone or before phones had voice recorders, student had to write down everything the teacher would say or put on a slideshow in class. Now, students have the ability to record what was said during class, or take pictures of the important slideshows with their phones. As oppose to writing, there is now portable typing with the use of laptops. Cell phones are becoming miniature computers and it is not stopping. Newer technology comes out constantly. There are both great advantages and disadvantages to this. Now is this a good thing, or a bad thing? Only time and experience will tell.
