Ms Daisy, I share your passion regarding the impact technology has on the present generation. Like many other things in life, it has to be evenly balance. It's difficult to blame the technology altogether for the repercussions resulting from irresponsible use of these devices. I’m sure before the advent of technology, there were social declines associated with conformity and all sorts of ills in the society. Our younger generations must be taught about being responsible users; the onus is on the parents/ guardian and users to be responsible users. After all innovation is not just about doing well in the community but is about rewards for the companies manufacturing and selling them too - in the form of profit margins. Having said this, manufacturers are equally responsible to educate the younger users as to the dangers resulting from irresponsible usage of such items. I'll like to lean more towards the advantages.

Nemos:

"Does our needs forming the technology or the technology forming our needs?"

I have struggled with this question in the past. The former holds true when we look at the impact on household appliances on the family and the help many women have gained from technology to run their homes especially in the era of "housewives!" . It has become the latter in the 21st century where humans are adapting to technological innovations with damaging cnsequences to relationships and communities.

Anna:

In addition to the social isolation created by technology use, there is also the desensitization of the younger generation to human plight. The violent games have turned the children into robots who take killing of humans as fun and games.

According to some insider information. Healthcare cost is so high because lawyers, insurance and doctors all want to get their fat check.
Insurance companies are charging customers high premiums yet not paying their doctors. Doctors tries to overcharge you for every single service ; even those that are marginally performed. Lawyer is trying to make their share by helping you sue doctor. It's a completely ugly chain

The 10 billion person estimate of world population matches the high estimate of the UN 2004 population estimation (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:World-Population-1800-2100.png)  There is also a median and a low estimate that take into account non-optimal conditions for human life.  Some might argue that even the low estimate shows too smooth a drop-off that doesn't really match population dynamics in nature.  Any kind of technological game plan should take into account contingencies for non-optimal events.

@Prabhakar, I agree, it makes me wonder - what will the future be like for our children? If the so called faceless, emotionless machines now replaces humans, what will happen? I’m reluctant to consider this. On a more serious note, like you said nothing can replace human touch.  Technology has impacted and still playing major parts our lives.

No indeed I liked the article very much.It is too early to say that ST tries to name their products as social.

Definitely there is going to be a big drift in the field of health care. there are loads of innovations happening on them so i think we can see some reduction.

Jay_Bond, i do not know what part of the heathcare cost is due to the "connectivity" and what part is due to the higher cost of medicines and hospital care. But if we can leveraging some money on buidling the infrastructure then we might in the 90's era of IT.

Nemos, if i am in the same boat then i read sarcasm in your comment. I agree with you in this article. It seems STM is just trying to label their work as a social work rather than something out of competition.
