People have become overly dependent on technology.
Why did that topic interest you?
I am a technology buff, I buy every new gismo and gadget out there and play with them until I know how to use everything on it. Recently we had a snowstorm that hit very early in the year, causing a power outage for almost two weeks. I never realized how much of my life was dependent on technology until this happened, and I couldn’t use all my gadgets that I normally do.

Specialists agree that some people have become overly dependent on technology. They remove themselves from the moment to see things through the lens of their phone or their camera and they fail to recognize that the true value is for them to see it with their own eyes. Nonetheless, there are some counter-arguments as well saying, that if people wouldn’t capture things, millions of people couldn’t see faraway lands or things happening on the other side of the world.
