Last Sunday, I was dining in McDonald’s. I put my iPhone on the plate which was used to hold all the food I ordered. After dumping the waste into the garbage bin, I left McDonald's’ with my bluetooth headphone on. The music suspended playing all of a sudden while I was walking away from McDonald’s. I was dumbfounded, and instantly panic. It is crystal clear that bluetooth connection was limited by distance between devices, so I asserted that I had disposed my phone into the garbage bin. After anxiously searching in the bin, I found my iPhone. I would not have been able to find my phone had there not been bluetooth. Thanks to benefits of technology, in this case of bluetooth, a catastrophe was avoided.
Nevertheless, when we contemplate the case slightly deeper, we can observe the flaw of technology. I was leaving, preoccupied with the content of what I just viewed when I was scanning through webpages. This certainly distracted my attention and, to some extent, made me oblivious. It is because of the smartphone technology that my attention was shifted away. Not only does this blemish apply to my case, but it also works in various situations, such as phone distraction when driving.
This has come to a conclusion that the technology we use has both useful and negative features. Enjoying technology with caution of its cons may be a more efficient way to use it.
