The article offers the author's perspectives on the role of information technology in the lives of many people. The author asserts that technology is supposed to be easy to learn and easy to use and should be designed to deliver. He stresses that until software and hardware designers realize the concept of technology and are willing to take the steps needed to make their products more friendly and pleasing, the gap between technology and humanity is expected to grow in scope.
