      What do you think the world will be without technology?

      Would it have been a better place? Tell us your opinion. I'm just curious to know, xD

      I suppose it depends on what your classing as technology.
      No TV no phones no cars we would be back in the 1800's
      No wheel and we would be back in caves probably :)

      I don't think it would be a better place but we managed without all these Mobile Phones etc etc

      You would have no cellphones, PC, TV etc.

      "The wheel is technology. A shovel is technology. A spear is technology. Clothing is technology. If ALL technology was destroyed, everything a person would do would have to be done purely by hand. Technology is not limited to electronic devices, which is what I think your real question was.."

      Well the way I see it,yes the gun is technology but a gun is not a killer the person pulling the trigger is the killer.
      So do we get rid of humans to try and get the perfect solution ?

      technology has changed our daily lives. without it... the cellphones, internet, grocery check-out system, online ticketing... etc... we would be hard for us to live. we are too much reliant on technology.

      I agree with APS, guns aren't technology. Well, they are more weapons than tech.

      Err.. No! lol.
      Before guns, they made spears and other items to kill.

      I was looking at the History channel the other day about the longtime days ( fossils & investigation/research on them to see what happened long time ago ) when they just figured out to combine two items and it was called the 'bow & arrow'.

      They sure did a lot of killing in those times as well with their inventions...

      That's not what APS said, ;)

      oops. sorry my bad. must have typed too fast. Yeah, but I don't really think gun's a technology per say. It's more a weapon than a techno.

      Firstly we would be allot fitter and healthy.
      But their are always pros and cons with this sort of issue.
      Personally I could not live my life with out technology.

      Then again, we can always imagine what it'll be like and compare to our days to say what's on our mind, ;)

      What about gaming?

      Well, the world without technology would have been MUCH different (yeah no crap, right?)
      For one: Say goodbye to modern factories and modes of production and delivering. Say hello to old west shops on streets and goddarn saloons!
      I think we could have gotten rid of a lot of internet addictions, porn, gaming, etc. However, at the same time the murder rate, rape frequency, theft, etc would be much higher.

      If we lose technology now we are screwed..just so you know. So get your basement cellar ready for a defensive base, and buy all the guns you can!

      Life would be a lot harder for everyone, even kids. People wouldn't travel very far without cars. I don't know what the heck I'd be doing without internet.

      I am pretty sure I would love to live in a world without cell phones. Although i would go nuts without internet I can totally live without cable tv, because you can watch everything that is on cable on your computer. But I think the world would be batter off if we were say stuck in the 80's.

      Have to admit as much as I do like my gadgets the benefits of going back to say the 80's would be great :) more socialising in person would definitely be seen more often.
