I'm into the internet, but I'm not into any technology gadgets. The internet itself is all that I need in regards to having the world at my finger tips and keeping up with online friends. When I'm out at the park or something, I just try to enjoy it for what it is, and thus I don't have a need for smart phones, IPADs etc.

I find Facebook to be an extremely convenient way to stay in touch with people and to keep up with what is going on in their lives (births of children, birthdays, marriages, etc.). I especially enjoy staying in touch with former students and seeing how their lives are progressing.

I remain ambivalent as to the value of new technologies regarding social life. Practically and professionally, however, I find that internet based devices are very helpful and are beneficial to productivity (and allow for entirely new products).

I'm always interested in the latest gadgets and seeing how they can improve our lives but we also have to be careful how we use them in order to maintain the ability to interact face-to-face with people.  The ability to carry a computer in your pocket (i.e. smartphone) can help us be more productive but it's also easy to feel productive without accomplishing anything (i.e. playing on Facebook and Pinterest).

I have grown closer to my family. I can video chat with my parents and friends. I can text my mother way more often than I could call her. I also stay in contact with friends through Facebook. I can also get in touch again with friends I've fallen out of communication with.

I assume that you are talking about things like smart phones and electronic readers and such.  I agree that these are a very helpful thing that can enrich our lives.  The ability to gain access to all the information available on the internet even when we are away from home is tremendously useful not just for entertainment but also for things like shopping and finding your way to places you need to go.

Still being in my early teens, I've grown up with 'today's' world. Our generation of people are expected to understand the concepts of technology, and to be able to communicate with and operate technology. It's hard to imagine the world without all the widgets we have today, such as the Internet, a broad cyber world packed full with information that anyone can access, and sophisticated televisions, entertainment devices that so brilliantly manipulate light. I can't help but allude to the Star Trek series here: who knows where the future will take us? Will we have food replicators, or teleporting devices? Even warp technology that can take us thousands of light years in a matter of months? I would like to refer to the quotation:

Anything is possible if you set your mind to it.
