Technology is simply the word we use for the application of physical/chemical "laws" -- the knife, the spearhead, the cup, the faggot, the wheel, etc. were all technologies.  Today we think of electronic technologies, but just a generation ago, technology was the telephone, the light bulb, the airplane, the radio.  The question lacks specificity in its present wording.  If the asker means "the latest technological advances, such as cell towers, etc., then the question has substance.
