10 Reasons Why I Don’t Embrace Technology

Posted by Monica Edwards Categories: Business, Personal

techI have a need to plead my case because a soon to be released video review of my thoughts of the paints a picture of me as someone who “hates” technology. This is not a true depiction of my feelings as I believe that “hate” is a strong word, and I try not to use it loosely. There are not many things I hate, but there are things I can do without. I also wanted to make it clear that since my husband‘s world revolves around the tech world, I support him in all that he does, and if not for technology, he would not have a job and we would not be so greatly blessed. But, it does not mean that I have to embrace all that comes with his choice of career. So, here are 10 reasons why I don’t embrace technology wholeheartedly.



Well you don’t necessarily have to update your computer every few months. I got mine in November 2004 and it’s still working great.

Hi Monica,

Those humans that did not embraced the fire technology thousands of years ago arguing that it was damn hot and burning did not enjoy cooked meat and could not digest protein as well as those who managed to live with such a dangerous “item” as fire…not to talk about the cold winters. So humans who embraced fire were more numerous and more successfull, suffer less in winter, were better fed and could scare dangerous animals away at night. Also were stronger because they could digest meat better and were more social because fire invites to gather around.

To the contrary those who became obessed with fire got burnt often, did not hunt enough or did not look after their house(cave)keeping duties.

So technology is helpful but should be used wisely, among other things because an Iphone or a Smartphone is a spy in your pocket surveilling al you do and where you are.

In the meantime if you are cold thinking of prehistoric times when fire was not “domesticated” look for a blanket here:
