But how does this technological progress change our lives, is it really a positive change or are we becoming too dependent on new technologies?

One of the latest inventions is Google Glass, a pair of glasses which do much more than the average smartphone or computer. Is this kind of technological progress positive or will it lead to people becoming more isolated and more stressed?
