Answers
1,The author Douglas Adams once made a witty point about {1,technology}: the inventions we label “technologies” are simply those which haven’t yet become an {1,invisible}, effortless part of our lives. “We no longer think of chairs as technology,” he {1,argued}. “But there was a time when we hadn’t worked out how many legs chairs should have, how tall they should be, and they would often ‘crash’ when we tried to use them. Before long, computers will be as {1,trivial} and plentiful as chairs…and we will cease to be aware of the things.” Adams’s {1,prediction} was prescient. Computers have been such a prominent, dazzling force in our lives for the past few decades that it’s easy to forget that subsequent {1,generations} might not even consider them to be technology. Today, screens draw constant attention to themselves and these high-visibility machines are a demanding, delightful pit into which we {1,pour} our waking hours. Yet we are on the cusp of the moment when computing finally slips beneath our {1,awareness} – and this development will bring both dangers and benefits.
