.What amazing things technology is bringing into our life. What is even more amazing in technology is its unpredictability. We never know what will come next and in the same time we are alwasy looking for innovations. At first we started with technology, then things advanced to give birth to mobile technology and now we are living in an age of nanotechnology. Isn't it amazing how human life is developing into the unknown ?
