I don't think people thought life was dull without technological gadgets for the first 5000 or so years of civilization; it was just different. Gadgets don't really change the quality of our lives, just the circumstances in which we live. Yes, we would feel lost without them, since we are used to them now. But eventually life would become what it was before we had our pc's and cellphones, etc.

I actually think people work harder with technology. What does technology allow us to do? It lets us do more, and more quickly. We are expected to do more with less. Do we have more leisure time than we used to before the most modern technology? Not really. We are always freed from one job to do another.
