Modern technology is simply an advancement of old technology. The impact of technology in modern life is unmeasurable, we use technology in different ways and sometimes the way we implement various technologies do more damage than good. What we call modern technology is technically not so new in most cases. For example, mobile phone technology has evolved from what it was in the year 2000 and continued to do so today; nowadays we use smartphones which is merely an advanced version of an older mobile phone.
We use technology on a daily basis to accomplish specific tasks or interests. Modern technology or evolved technology at times may replace previously used technology due to its increased benefits or newfound popularity. Take for example transportation technology; at one time steam-powered trains were widely used, now they have been replaced by electric powered trains which move significantly faster, allowing for more efficient use
