Technological development often follows breakthrough in the scientific field. In the five centuries, for example, the discoveries of Copernicus, Galileo, Newton, and many other scientists had unleashed a scientific revolution that quickly revolutionized technology. With the invention by Johannes Gutenberg of the movable type of printing press, knowledge had been easily kept and annotated, making it easy for the preceding generations to document their findings and scientific ideas. Hence, books became very accessible and more affordable to most people, allowing most people to learn from the wisdom and knowledge of the past. Almost sixty years after the first “heavier-than-air” flight by the Wright Brothers, man first landed on the moon. Several decades after, manmade spacecraft has already been traveling near the edge of the solar system. Most of us can only wonder where these technological advancements would lead us. Moreover, with the onset of the World Wide Web, knowledge of all sorts has been easily accessible to anyone, anywhere and anytime as long as one has an internet connection. Google, for example, one of the most widely visited browsers in the world has collected all the available knowledge in the world. Similarly, using the net, you can now research any data and information that you would like to know under the sun.
The internet has been a way of life of contemporary men and women. In fact, previous to the introduction of the internet, most people would look at the billboards and the yellow pages to in search for anything that they needed. Nowadays, people would simply click on their tablets and mobile phones if they need a service or a product. Using their mobile phones, they can readily order the item that they want. Likewise, with the introduction of ridesharing apps, even the process of commuting has been radically changed, for nowadays, you can use your phone to look for a ride anywhere and anytime using ridesharing apps.
Yet, it doesn’t stop there. Even in the aspect of gambling and betting, the process is slowly becoming technologically novel with the use of online apps that would allow anyone to bet on online casinos. People need not go physically to actual casino sites to while away their time, for online they can easily get the casino experience without going out of their home. Moreover, to lure new players and members, these online casinos offer free spins, and credits. Likewise, players would usually receive casino bonus if it is their first time playing casino online.
Leisure has indeed gone online, and often people seldom get out of their homes because everything that they needed is accessible to them via the use of their mobile phones. Likewise, it is interesting to note that every aspect of man’s life is already imbued with modern technology. The only way to escape man’s technology maybe is to stay aloof inside a certain cave, devoid of gadgets and bereft of electricity. Yet, it seems that there is no longer a place in this world that is not tinged with the imprints of modern technology. We can be thankful for these technological advancements; yet, these technological advancements may be leading us to our perdition as in the case of the development of H-Bomb which has the capacity to annihilate humanity in an instant.
