In a world where gadgets are growing more sophisticated, human behaviour is changing – and not in a good way.
That is what Robert Vamosi, author of When Gadgets Betray Us argues in his book, which examines the dangers of our growing dependence on technology.
As gadgets develop the ability to multitask seemingly endless functions, Vamosi argues that people are increasingly unable to think for themselves.
“Instead of lifting our heads, looking around and thinking for ourselves,” Vamosi writes, some of us no longer see the world as human beings have for thousands of years and simply accept whatever our gadgets show us.
