How do you react when you hear technology news? Some people hear a technological announcement and are afraid. Others wonder why anyone would need anything like it. Some are amazed at what the technology can do and the potential impact it could have on the world. There’s a technology solution for everything.
For example, how will people react to a new technology announcement, like the iWatch coming out this week? How you react is closely related to your age. Young people who are Apple zealots think the watch is the most wonderful thing Apple has ever done. Older people who still wind their watches daily don’t see a need for it much less understand it. This is the common reaction, especially when the price is revealed. People who don’t understand or can’t relate always say that the price is ridiculous and wonder who would ever spend that kind of money on something like that?
It’s estimated that over the next year 485 million people will think differently and buy a smart watch. New technology, no matter what the field is, can be controversial, but there’s usually a technology answer for every problem.
The invention of fuel injection basically doubled the supply of gasoline in the world. Now California is facing a severe drought. One technology solution would be the desalination of the ocean water. However, some people view this technology as bad even though they may be thirsty. People say that desalinating water takes up too much fossil fuel energy polluting the world. What it will come down to, is that if the technology works and saves people from a no water situation, is polluting the atmosphere a little more worth it? We would say that there’s also a technology solution coming for that problem too.

COMMENTARY: Technology has always solved the problems that technology created. It seems irresponsible at times, but that’s only because the need outweighs the risks that seem so monumental. Technological advancements actually require a lot of faith in what we don’t yet know. Since the 1940s, our advancements in technology has come from the reverse engineering of space vehicles, not of this world. It comes from cooperation and not domination. So there’s more to technology than meets the eye.
