"Automated Driving Technology." 2014. Web. 10 Nov 2014

 

    This is a video demonstrating the new technology in cars that is designed to maneuver itself to avoid potential car accidents and even park itself. Watching this video it would be difficult for a person to pick out by this technology would be a con rather than a pro. I must admit, it is pretty neat, but there is one thing in this video that I would like to point out. In order for the car to sense danger as in another car ahead, it uses WiFi which syncs the cars together so that it would move or adjust accordingly. What if the stopped car ahead doesn't have the same technology as the one going 90 miles per hour? If the person behind the wheal was relying soulfully on the vehicle to get him or her out of danger, they were in for a rather not so good surprise. The point is, if people rely on technology too much, it could literally be life threatening.

Good, bad of robot technology - The News Journal

Good, bad of robot technology - The News Journal | Technology | Scoop.it
Technology does not always bring us good news.
Lexie Allen's insight:

"Good,  Bad of Robot Technology." 30 Oct. 2014. Web. 10 Nov. 2014

 

The latest on-hand technology would most likely be Siri. She's very helpful and convenient. When a person is lost, all they have to do is say, "Siri, take me home", then the following reply would be, "Okay, getting directions to home." Then, BOOM, home in no time. Well, in the next decade or so, scientist believe that a real life Siri will come into existence, better known as the iRobot. A robot that will be of assistance to elderly people, to clean and bathe them. They will even "hire" these new iRobots to work in retail and greet and help costumers. What is wrong with this idea? Well, for starters, all of these things that the new iRobot will be programmed to do, the average person are already doing today. After they create something that will take our place, what will there be left for us to do. Eventually iRobots will be doing the average person's every day job leaving us lazy and out of work. The iRobot is nothing but the wrong idea and will leave the human population doomed. This journal is a perfect example as to why furthering technology will result in a horrific outcome.

Internet Is Turning 25, But Not Everyone Is Celebrating - RedOrbit

Internet Is Turning 25, But Not Everyone Is Celebrating - RedOrbit | Technology | Scoop.it
The Internet will be turning 25 years old this year, but the latest survey sheds light on how not everyone is as appreciative about the creation of the World Wide Web as most have been.
Lexie Allen's insight:

       Rannals, Lee. "The Internet is turning 25, but not Everyone is Celebrating." 27 Feb. 2014. Web. 10 Nov. 2014.

 

The above blog is very relevant to the topic of technology. This year the internet has reached its 25th birthday, but not everyone is excited about it. Some believe that the internet has been a nuisance. 15% of the web's users feel like the internet has had a negative impact on today's society, but the other 85% think otherwise. The internet is used for every simple task that the average person wouldn't even think twice about. Like telling siri to take you home when you're lost, or looking up lyrics to a song. The internet is accessible and extremely handy. In web is becoming increasingly essential to our everyday life. How would we really react without it?

Peter Thiel: Don't Blame Technology For Drop In Middle Class Wages

Peter Thiel: Don't Blame Technology For Drop In Middle Class Wages | Technology | Scoop.it
Peter Thiel acknowledges that the middle class has faced tough times over recent decades -- but thinks that technology is unfairly blamed for it.
Lexie Allen's insight:

      Huet, Ellen. "Peter Thiel: Don't Blame Technology for Drop in Middle Class Wages." 09 Nov. 2014. Web. 10 Nov. 2014.

 

This blog is an argument against my topic. It explains how people tend to blame everything on technology including the lack of jobs for the middle class. “The general reaction people have is, ‘Let’s slow down technology, let’s limit it,’” Hoffman said. “That’s actually, generally speaking, a failing game. Other people aren’t going to slow down technology.” That is a true statement to a certain extent. Just because people will not slow down on technology doesn't meant that technology isn't the problem itself. The article above contributes a good composing argument against my topic but also gives room to be argued against.

TEENS REACT TO 90s INTERNET

Lexie Allen's insight:

        Benny and Rafi. "Teens React to 20s Internet." 1 June 2014. Web. 10 Nov. 2014.

 

This YouTube video was basically an example to show how far technology has come, but it also shows how it "dumbs" this new tech-filled generation down. About 5 teens were asked to watch a video explaining how to use the internet in the 90's. Since the video was so outdated, the reaction from the teens weren't surprising. They laughed at the video and the information that was attempting to be given because everything that was supposed to be a lesson was already known. In the video, a 10 year old boy explained how ".com" was an abbreviation for the word "commercial". All of the people that were asked to watch the video had no idea that that is was it stood for. Is the knowledge of knowing what ".com" stands for all that necessary? Probably not, but the accessibility to the internet and technology in general makes this new generation blind to the simplest things. This video was a perfect example as to how technology has a negative impact on this generation.

Social Media - Let's Be Honest

Lexie Allen's insight:

Elerick, John. "Social Media - Let's Be Honest." 15 Sep. 2014. Web. 11 Nov. 2014. 

This YouTube video above is a truthful yet sarcastic way that explains the time and attention given to social media. In the past, some social media was just for connecting with friends and family, now its all about impressing strangers 100,000 miles away that we will never actually come in contact with. This is a great video that puts emphasis on my topic and what it is that I am trying to get into people's minds; social media controls the majority of the population.
