… [Steve] Wozniak paused to criticize the stranglehold technology has on our lives.
“We’re dependent on it,” he said at the museum, which holds one of the world’s largest collections of vintage computers and sits about six blocks from Google’s headquarters. “And eventually, we are going to have it doing every task we can in the world, so we can sit back and relax.” ….
“All of a sudden, we’ve lost a lot of control,” he said. “We can’t turn off our internet; we can’t turn off our smartphones; we can’t turn off our computers.”
Digital technology is ubiquitess, like many technologies before it, it has become an integral part of our world. Have we lost control?
