Over the past decade, how has technology made your life better or worse?

At the beginning of the year 2000, Facebook did not exist. You couldn’t take pictures with your phone. Apple had yet to unveil the iPod. Over the past decade, how has technology made your life better or worse?

Every time I sit down in a meeting or go for drinks with friends, we are all tapping away on our iPhones and Blackberrys. Even with my uncle or dad. -Kathleen, St. Louis Park

I think that technology has made society worse because we communicate not face to face as much, but more by checking our Facebooks or Twitters. -Morgan, Minneapolis, MN

I have a love-hate relationship with my blackberry. -Michael, Woodbury, MN

Technology has made me more inpatient. More productive when i use it then walk away but less productive when i waste time in front of it. -Little Falls, MN
