For good because when it is used correctly it serves as a tool and helps us do things faster but bad because it has made us lazy to think, it absorbs our time, and you don't spend as much time with people (Dentist)
Good because thanks to technology we have accomplished many things (Psychologist)
It has helped the world in areas like medicine and others but on the other hand we haven't put a limit between technology and us so we use it for our own good but harm others in the process in the case of the nuclear bombs (Manufacturing Engr.)
