LOOK UP

Most people surrounding us own some kind of smart device. I think its great how technology has evolved and how useful and entertaining the new devices can be. They are a great example of what people are capable of imagining and creating. Now, we can all take pictures and videos at the moment. There is no need to have one of those huge old cameras that were used back in the day. We can just take out our phones or tables or whatever it is that we have and capture the moment we desire. There are countless of applications that could be useful for school, work, and other environments. There are applications for calculators, online books and textbooks, instant messages among others. Technology has changed life. However, some people tend to overuse it, which is not that great of an idea. This video is about how overusing a smart device can significantly influence people's lives. Not just the one spending the whole day on his or her phone, but also everyone else around that person. I think it is a great video so watch it and comment what you think.

    1. Technology is useful and helpful when used in moderation, but when it begins to get out of hand, I believe that is when we are in dire need to stop, change, and look up. Sooner or later we are going to see the serious effects of society's addiction to technology.

    2. I've watched this video a few times already and every time I watch it has the same strong impact it had on me since the first time I watched it. It calls for a change in our lives and how being 'social' through social networks is not necessarily the same as being 'social' with people literally around us. With regards to your comment Lindsey, I fully agree with it; we will have to pay the consequences of our addiction to all of these smart devices and/or technology overall.

  2. He's right. We sometimes get too distracted with our technology that we forget to make friends. We should remember that socializing is good.

    1. Well you can use smart phones to be social, so you can chat on facebook without a computer, or meet new people. Besides, if someone really does not want to talk, there are plenty of ways to "look down" even without an Iphone.

  3. This is so right all the people even make contests to see who has more friends on facebook or more followers on tweeter but they don't realize how dumb they are being.

  4. This video says the truth about social media and how we are becoming more dumb while smartphones are becoming smarter. We are becoming unsocial and it is bad.

    1. I agree with you, there are people like that that get me really mad. Nevertheless, if you look back you also realize that you've done it before. That's were we have to take a stand and stop ourselves are reconnect with the world instead of disconnecting.

  7. I remember watching this video a long time ago and wondering if it was going to make an impact or not. It doesn't seem like anything as changed, in fact it has gotten worse. Everywhere I go people just stare down at their mobile devices and it's sad and awkward. I hope that we can all break free from this and use technology for good but not overuse it.

    1. I agree Sofi. It is ruining our lives. It make us be apart of everyone and just stay in the phone, ipad or whatever. The video is really cool, the music makes it deeper.

  12. I saw this video and I feel that it was true. I even put my phone away for like 15 minutes. However, I find it ironic that I saw this video on facebook, while it only talks about how social networks are a bad thing and stuff but it is being promoted in it.
