The media has had a major in somewhat neagtive influence on our relationships becuase we are not doing anything face to gface anymore where we can actually see eachothe facial experssion and actually see that other person, instead now we're doing EVERYTHING through technology, althought i must admit I am a victim to this. I feel thats its extremly important to stay in immediate contact with others espically peole that are close to me, because anything can happen at any time. I'm not sure i would respond to a power outage because thats howI communicate with everyone. I would be extremly worried because I could be away at school and not know whats going on with my family and very clos friends. I absolutelyagree with cmc, technology really makes eveyone lazy for example siri on the iphones instead going through your phone to play a song, call someone, text someone you can simpy tell siri to do it. Or instead of going to see someone you could facetime them or call.
