PostHeaderIcon Technology Products such as Apple or Android?

Question by Yesenia: Technology Products such as Apple or Android?
I don’t know if it’s really described as “Technology Products” but I need some. Things such as iPods, tablets, phones, etc. All I want is something with Wi-Fi and able to download apps.

I’m not really into apple products though. They break really easily and I drop things a lot. I have an Android phone that I’ve dropped about a billion times. If it was an iPhone, it would have a completely cracked screen by now.

Anyways, I’m only wanting to spend up to a budget of $ 150. Not much, I know. But my mom is buying it and she has three kids to support. So any ideas?

PostHeaderIcon How is technology and social media contributing to youth crime?

Question by Candice K: How is technology and social media contributing to youth crime?
Also, how does the media influence the youth criminal justice system?

Best answer:

Answer by NeilSherman
Technology does it by establishing a base standard of achievement for competitive morals necessary to “keep a job”; “screw unto others”, “nose to the grindstone”, “bills to pay”, “what do You care”, etc. While Social Media exploits the “us versus them” motivation of factional consensus building by associating desires directly to specific forms of expressing them like how to dress, how to speak, how to walk, how to manipulate tools, etc.

As to “how does the media influence the youth criminal justice system”, it’s about time someone put that out in public – too many people believe it’s the government that uses “the press”, when, in fact, it most certainly is indeed the ambitions of the press that actually cause the revolutions through nothing short of simple Harping on an agenda or pet issue that originates from either the owner of the “press” itself, or the major advertiser that finances it, or the most recent corp of graduates it employs as ‘qualified’ voices to ‘relate’ an issue. It’s “the media” that sets the “standards” against which all things are measured and thereby the “goals” that are to be achieved by choosing and incessantly portraying whose plans are “smart” and therefore require adoption and whose are “dumb” and demand culling.

PostHeaderIcon Are we becoming too reliant on technology?

Question by Mi: Are we becoming too reliant on technology?
I have a theory, could it be possible that we as humans are becoming too reliant and involve with technology?

Is it good for use as a species to continue perusing immortality? What would we do if we cured all diseases and lived extrodonary long lives…. No more having children? Having to tell people when they must die?

Are we to involved with “social media” like facebook”? I see some people who spend so much time on facebook and such that they appear oblivious to the world around them.

Best answer:

Answer by daisy
Yes we are. In my perfect works, all the building and cars and technology would be gone so that people could actually learn to communicate and socialize again.
