I can live without technology, but technology helps me live better.
Since my job(s) depend heavily on the Internet, then I’d say I need a computer and the Internet. They kinda go hand in hand, like my cell phone and Verizon (or any other service provider), my Direct TV and the satellite dish.
My family has had a computer and the Internet since the early 90s. I remember when there was only three Internet providers, dial up was the only option and that funny noise the computer used to make when I would “sign on” to AOL.
I’ve been at work when the server went down and work came to a halt. We found other things to do that didn’t include the Internet or the server.
Fortunately, we have some great IT guys and after a few minutes, the server and Internet were up and running.
