Do we always agree with technological developments?

 Q:   Ask a Question about Do we always agree with technological developments?       
Do we always agree with technological developments? by Cristina Nuta -

Someone once described the age we live in as that of a vanishing world, one in which the familiar is constantly disappearing for ever and technological change is often difficult to cope with. So it should come as no surprise to most of us to hear that yet another part of everyday life is about to go for ever. This happens as a result of man's need to change and to invent things which seem easier for his every day's live.

Still, when I recently read that within the next decade money as we know it will probably cease to exist in technologically advanced countries, I had to read the article twice to make sure it wasn't April 1st. According to some specialists in the economic domain, the familiar coins as and banknotes will soon be replaced entirely by credit cards of various kinds. And the shop of the future will be linked directly to the network of banking computers. The assistant will be simply key in your bank account code number and the money you have spent, and thank you politely.

You won't have to dig deep in your pockets for change or pretend at the pub that you have left your money at home. You may not even have a number for your savings as such, as the computer may by then be able to read your handprint. So there will be no more credit card frauds either.

But I am afraid that I shall miss money. I felt strongly attached to it, ever since I received my first pocket money when I was five, and kept it in a money-box. Even if my credit card of the future will be able to tell me exactly how much spending power I have left in the computer files, even if it lights up and plays a happy, or sad, tune at the same time, nothing will be able to replace the sheer pleasure I gained from rattling the coins in my money-box. Not to mention the other obvious problem which will be caused by a shortage of real money- like how to start a football match, for example!
