Modern technology has revolutionized the way people all over the world communicate and interact. Members of modern societies think themselves very clever though we lack even rudimentary knowledge of the biological and artificial life systems that support us.

Technology also creates financial problems in families because most technologies are very expensive to buy like the computers, televisions, refrigerators, dvd, and home theatre systems.
