Remember the days when you had to turn the key in the car door to lock it? (maybe some do still!) or when you had to get up to switch off the channels on the TV? Or when your grandparents told you how they cooked dinner over the fire and washed the clothes in a tub with soap! what??? no mod con washing machine or oven! yikes! perish the thought!

One good thing, which we may take for granted:
Great that you can lock a car from inside your house, if you forgot to lock it when rushing in from the rain! Just open the nearest window a bit and zap!laugh

Re: Technology, good or bad?
I've cooked plenty of meals on an open fire while out camping.I've washed my clothes,my sons and my late husbands clothes out my hand and hung them on the clothes line.

I didn't have a washer/dryer until my son got older.

I've always done dishes by hand and air dried them.

I didn't have my own computer until I had married my late husband cause he was into computer and built them from the cases up.


So I could survive without all this technology if I had to.

Nothing wrong with exercising the arms rolling down a car window.
The key has been around for eons, and can always be found at the
bottom of a Woman's hand bag after she dumps the contents.laugh

Good on you cc. I washed clothes by hand but only if they were too delicate for the washing machine. I'd like to think I could survive without it but I'll be happy to use it sometimes but not all the time.

Re: Technology, good or bad?
Overall technology is beneficial.

It just moves faster than we adapt as people.


It's good to have access to more information, and a wider circle of communication, but we'll be a bit before our ability to cope and navigate it all gracefully catches up.

Re: Technology, good or bad?
On the whole the development of "Technology" is good.
BUT Since the 1990's in the UK it has been generally seen as almost solely applicable to sophisticated electronic engineering, Computer Aided design, manufacture and electronic communication and anyone not understanding it as inferior.

It is developing too fast for the average person to contemplate or understand and in many cases they cannot afford to have the latest Keep up with the Jones's "Must have" theory, all singing all dancing bells and whistles Phones Watches & other Gizmo's and all the arrogant who dismiss all history as unnecessary. I am happy doing one offs and development projects with proper tools in my "old fashioned" workshop, indulging in my Hobbies and Interests, happy to share them and knowledge with and for anyone with due respect for history but I never take prisoners with any smart arsed 20 something puss head with a Degree in Mechanical Engineering that was awarded without their ever making anything useful with their hands.
