Throughout history, technological advancement has improved mankind. Since Adam and Eve, men and women have methodically worked to make their life easier by inventing tools and methods to increase productivity. For survival and prosperity, humans have through the ages, carved rudimentary tools made from animal bones and stone, made pottery, and worked with wood, stone, concrete, etc, to build homes to keep sheltered from the elements.
Looking back, one can follow the kerosene lamp to the invention of the light bulb and move effortlessly from the industrial revolution to the proliferation of the internet. People have also benefited greatly from advancements in medicine to the extent that lives have been not only saved, but the quality of life has also been improved. Yes, technology is great for mankind. Without inventions, we would all still be living in the Stone Age.
