Friday Night Quotes, June 2, Technology ….

TECHNOLOGY: A great topic for our Friday Night Quotes. We have friends who can’t wait for the next gadget or technological advance to come out and friends who wish electricity had not been invented. But, no matter where you are, TECHNOLOGY affects your life, so let’s look at what others have to say about it:
“I’m like an iPhone, I just lose energy without doing anything.” Rita Ghatourey
“One day soon the Gillette company will announce the development of a razor that, thanks to a computer microchip, can actually travel ahead in time and shave beard hairs that don’t even exist yet.” Dave Berry
“Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” Arthur C. Clarke (Our comment: we agree; we still think it’s magical that images can be broken into itty bitty pieces, send through the air and reassembled into television pictures of all sizes at the other end.)
“We are stuck with technology when what we really want is just stuff that works.” Douglas Adams (Comment: most of our readers would just say, ‘Amen’.)
“Computers are useless. They can only give you answers.” Pablo Picasso (Maybe the most interesting observation we have ever seen.)
“As cities grow and technology takes over the world belief and imagination fade away and so do we.” Julie Kagawa
“Technology is the knack of so arranging the world that we do not experience it.” Rollo May
“Humans are the reproductive organs of technology.” Kevin Kelly
“The real danger is not that computers will begin to think like men, but that men will begin to think like computers.” Sydney J. Harris
“Technology is dominated by two types of people: those who understand what they do not manage and those who manage what they do not understand.” Archibald Putt
Perhaps the most thought provoking quotes in some time.
Enjoy your weekend.
