There is an old saying - "The solution to every problem is the source of the next problem."
For the most part technology improves life. If it did not then we would revert to whatever we used before the latest technology. Almost everything was a new technology at some point. The wheel, pen and paper, automobiles, iPhones and so on.
Usually, technology allows society to get more done in less time with less effort. Although a new invention may allow us to do more, it may be that we do not need to do more of 'that'. And although there certainly would be several viewpoints about what was necessary and useful it always seems to sort itself out as the masses 'vote' on new inventions and technology. If in fact, it is deemed useful and worthy by enough people it will stick.
And the new technology will allow for breakthroughs to develop the next technology, and so on. In this modern age it is more evident than ever that technology is like a pyramid, the more that is developed the more than can be developed and invention and technology expands exponentially.
Life appears to be moving very fast. Look back to your first computer or cell phone. The amount of change in the last 20 years is astounding, the last 100 years - unimaginable. The next 100 years - . . . .
It may be said that invention/technology/improvement is a basic human endeavor and is fundamental to life like eating, sleeping, thinking, communicating etc. http://eriewaterproofing.com/ http://www.fadedfungi.com/
