Inappropriate Uses of Technology

This semester I am taking a stereography and virtual reality class. Yesterday we touched upon touch screens and how they work.  You see them everywhere! This technology has invaded your grocery store, i- phone, GPS unit and other countless portable devices.

Technology is built upon innovation and is often implemented to make everyday life more convenient. It  also has its entertainment and demonstrative purposes along with an inherent funness. Who doesn’t like poking buttons?

Here is a brief parody by SNL over the touch screen technology used during this past election.  (Click the image, it will take you where you can watch the video).
