Re: The Missing Link?

After reading your post, I have a way better understanding on how these complex batteries work. I thought it's really cool that a 1 kilowatt-hour cell can last for 6,666 hours.

Re: When do you use technology?

I agree with your point, mainly about how someone's mind could be filled with stuff they cannot apply to other areas. But it could be argued that shows and other media could lead a child or person to think critically about certain things. On another angle, a show might have certain information that someone could apply to in areas requiring critical thinking. Its all highly situational, but fiction may not always be second to practical applications.

This is a short but cool survey, Here in our school we tend to use technology after school. because we usually have evening classes.

Hey Evan, When people become addicted to something whether it's a video game or a book or anything that makes you happy really, it's more likely that you will become addicted to it. The happier it makes you, the more addicted you will get. Here is a website to help you: http://www.video-game-addictio...games-addictive.html Hope this helps

Hi Evan! I think that's a really interesting topic to research about as so many people in our world are addicted to technology and would "die" without it. In my opinion, the best way not to get addicted to technology is to never be introduced to it. I remember when I simply had a Nokia cellphone, I never checked it and it never distracted me, but once I got a smartphone and got Instagram I feel like I'm constantly checking my phone. However, in our world, technology is kind of a necessity...

Hey Evan, Nice topic. In some cases the addiction of these devices brings some sort of disrespect, Could you show us some ways to avoid these devices because I'm also an addict of this stuff.

Hey Evan, I like where you're going with this. It truly is an major, albeit very first world, problem that has a seemingly unprecedented amount of influence in the lives of many. I thought it was great that you touched on the notion of addiction being measured not by time spent doing something, but rather on the extent which something consumes you. I think that you should, if time allows, do an "expand your thinking section" on how addiction to technology in our consumerist society affects...

Re: Inquiry Question

Hey, Evan I think your topic is something meaningful. I was addicted to video game and like you said, back at that time video games were like water and air to me. But after I find another hobby ------ play badminton I found out life is not only about video games. Here is a link about how to overcome addictionshttp://www.wikihow.com/Overcome-an-Addiction-to-Electronics good luck

Hey Evan, I think that this is an incredibly interesting topic that could produce very interesting results. I think you should look into the way a brain behaves or looks, when addicted to a typical drug, or other addictive substance, and then compare it to how a brain behaves when addicted to technology. Another thing that would be interesting is if you compared different parts of the light spectrum and how addictive they are or impacts their on the brain. Good luck and i look forward to...

Ah yes technology. I'm actually really happy that you are doing this topic because it has a been an increasing concern of mine over the past months. The companies selling these products only advertise the good qualities of these devices, while failing to talk about some of the negative aspects. A very scary thing considering technology is an un-charted area for many people. I myself find myself struggling to detach myself from my devices, and it is surprisingly difficult. Even if I know I...

Re: Inquiry Question

Hi Evan, I think your topic is going to be really interesting to read throughout the cycle. Personally, when I ask myself whether or not I'm addicted to my phone, my answer would be no, because I know that I don't use it as much as some people. However, if I'm bored, it's my go-to distraction and I sometimes even put off homework just because I let myself think that I deserve a break, even though it'd be more logical to just get it done. So I think that the "addiction" would differentiate...

Re: Inquiry Question

So cool Evan! Never thought about our addiction to technology as being something greater than just the time we spend on it. In that case I would say I'm definitely addicted, I don't spend much time on it as I am very busy and not overly interested in it but I do rely on it a lot for work, communication and socializing. I find it very intriguing how our society does almost nothing to help raise awareness about this addiction, especially in school. You would assume teachers knowing the affects...

Hey Gabriel! Funnily enough, I could definitely relate to your research because a few of my family members work from home!

Re: Metamorphosis- How might our world change in the next 100 years?

Hi Rhea. I remember reading a couple of your posts and really enjoying the insight you brought to this topic! I look forward to you continuing this question. Maybe you can expand your question to not just technology, but to what might happen to other things in the next 100 years. Like education, or government?

Re: Metamorphosis- How might our world change in the next 100 years?

Hi Rhea, I love how this question is answered as you mention how the iPhone and other tech has been around but we barely even notice time passing however at the same time so many developments have been made. It is truly impactful when comparing the last ten years and what has happened within this short time frame compared to the next 100 years. I'm glad you are wanting to stay with this topic as I'll be really interested to read your next posts!

Hey Gabriel, Your research is very interesting and unlike anything I've seen here. I enjoyed the arrangement of this post, and how you've divided everything up by your sources. Have you ever read The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell?

This is also known as Dunbar's number: 150. Many companies establish a maximum of 150 employees...

Re: C1RR1: Work Communication Attitudes

Hey Gabriel, I like the topic you chose. When you'll be looking at how communication has evolved to social media and so on. You could possibly look into the social issues it poses for younger generations like the lack of abilities younger generations may have at talking in person, holding a conversation and how to communicate face to face. Anyways, nice research!!

Re: C1RR1: Work Communication Attitudes

Hi Gabe, This is a thorough history of 20th century communication tools. I like how you brought in one invention at a time and then described its significance after. I wonder how a recent example of communication development impacts the way we interact with each other or changes the way we interact that we couldn't do before.

Re: C1RR1: Work Communication Attitudes

Hi Gabe! Life right now revolves around the internet and everything that goes with it. It seems amazing at how these things only existed in the minds of science fiction writers only a few decades ago. Your writing style is well thought out, organized and was very descriptive so readers could immediately form a timeline in their minds without much effort. This was a great introduction for your research cycle.
