Those experts need to contribute to making the future better with wiser and friendlier technology. Here what we at least have to do to make our future world becomes better with technology:
How we use technology wiser
· First thing first if you decide to control technology and not technology controls you. Be productive by not using the pieces of technology all the time. For example, do your hobby like playing a musical instrument, go jogging, go swimming, drawing, painting, etc. Yes, technology can get involved in those activities, just don’t use it. Never make social media steal so much time from you. Never neglect your responsibility in your family, in the office and in the society because of technology.
· Try to have at least once a week of not using technology at all. For example, you are with your family want to spend your weekend without any disturbance, just unplugged all of you and your family’s devices.
· Don’t ever make technology ruin your life by battling with cyber-attacks. Complete your devices with the best Virtual Private Network software, the best antimalware programs, antivirus software, and the best adware blockers. Don’t ever share secret things in public when you use Wi-Fi.
In spite of the desire of some people to make the technology add only positive impacts on people’s life, technology is still the technology which makes some people think is more important than anything. Technology affects not only society and culture. It affects deeply in politics. Many politicians use technology to get what they want.

· What we should keep in mind is that actually, experts in technology do have good intention in what they do. Some experts may not think of the negative impacts of what they create. However, their intention is to make people’s life easier. What we have to do is be wiser by selecting what high-tech things we should use and always actively remind technology experts to minimize the negative impacts of the high-tech things they create. If it is possible, invite other people to make petitions if the technology they create put people in danger, etc.
· Keep in mind that the new technology that keeps coming to us is the technology creators’ preferences and priorities, not ours. So, the choice is ours. Not all of us need new technology to ease our life. Just choose the ones that we need most.
· Many tech experts don’t pay attention to who the new technology they create will be used. They keep disrupting the people’s life just like that.

Those tech experts to-be also need to find a way of how to make it affordable for all people, etc.
By understanding those things mentioned above, it is hoped that society uses the technology wisely. It is no need to be ashamed of not always be updated with new technology. Especially if the new technology is only for fun like many different apps we have today. Always selecting new technology only for easing our life is more important to do.
