Certainly life is easier in the digital era, but does that make it better? I'm not so sure. Before Netflix we read books. Before social media and texting we sat face to face friends and family; we actually talked to each other. Now we have distracted drivers on the road. We have identity theft. Our children would rather play on their tablet than play outside. Your average High School student doesn't know how to use a screw driver. Better? Who knows. I'd say we are TOO dependent on technology these days.
