Is there any zombie around you? OR Do you meet any zombie?
Technology, a major source of social change, a practical application to ease the human work load. but technology specially smart phone make them Zombies.
Now a days zombies are everywhere, They walk aimlessly down the street, they’re may be sitting besides you, might be you are talking to them, you see a zombie eating meal with one hand and phone on the other, you can see them exercising in gym but their mind is control by the music plays in their head phones, don’t think that they’re under the spell of a witch they’re actually controlled by their smart-phones. It is not because that technology is making them addicted but the misuse or over use made them zombies.
The phone was a fabulous piece of technology. We could speak to one another across large distances. Today, smart-phone users under 20 may not know about the word “phone” in their smart-phone. If we go to era when cell phones was not there people use to made eye contact, talked to strangers, they even kept eye on what’s happening at next door. Family bond was strong, parent kept eye on children activities. But now people use to eye contact with their smart phones, they still talk to strangers through message applications but not with the one who is sitting next to them, they became unconscious for their neighbors. Family bond become weak because to fulfill their children need parents are providing unlimited technological advancements that are tablets, IPADS, IPODS, other video games from very early ages which not only making zombies but also hurting their mind health.
In a recent report doctors quotes that those children who use smart phones or different technology from early age will suffer from bone marrow problems because the electromagnetic waves hits the growth of bone marrow, as till age 15 the bone marrow remain weak.
I am not saying that it is a completely prohibited to use smart-phone it is something very useful for checking the weather, for keeping ourselves updated, provide information in seconds, having different applications like language translator, digital dictionary in short everything is in our hands but again some of people manipulate its use because the real problem is not whether machine think but whether men do.
