Changing Face of Society

This new video made by Microsoft should make us all laugh at ourselves, at how we have allowed technology to infiltrate all parts of our lives. Though I feel Microsoft is late in the mobile phone arena, they are ahead in terms of marketing the understanding of how technology are changing society. In a clever move to try to distinguish itself from the rest, as a late player, the venerable software giant is quietly trying to pave new paths. However I do not agree that it takes a phone to save us from itself. It takes an intentional sabbatical regularly to keep technology at bay. Otherwise, the future will no longer be baffled 'Really?'s but nonchalant disregard of all things human.

Enjoy the video. Take the conclusion lightly, but learn to laugh at ourselves.
