Madderest Do you hate modern technology?

I do. The only upside is the advancement of medical treatments. That's it. The downside is that people actually like this modern technology. You have crappy social media sites like Facebook that only cause drama and Twitter where people post about what they had for breakfast. Who cares? Not to mention the way people get entertainment these days. They use dumb streaming services like Hulu or some other services. Then there's rental services like Netflix that just suck. Don't you remember the days when you would go to Blockbuster every Friday night and rent a few movies and beg your mom to buy you some of that delicious candy they sold? And you can't forget VHS. I don't know about you, but I especially have fond memories of those orange colored VHS'S. But unfortunately, streaming services are taking over and less and less people are buying actual DVDs anymore. It's sad to think that dumb streaming services are taking over as the new main way to view entertainment. I hope there's still people out there that will continue to buy DVDs like I do!

Yeah yeah. Sorry about that rant but I had to get it out before I really exploded with anger. Have a good evening everyone!

Facebook isn't crappy, I am on it every day. Besides the posts from my friends, there are several games I like on Facebook.

You're using modern technology to access this website to complain about modern technology.

I'm on Facebook all the time and sometimes I'm on Twitter. But I do agree about VHS. How am I supposed to tape stuff? You can buy DVD'S but. a ) the show or shows might not be on DVD. and B) they dub over the music.

Yes, there is Netflix but I rarely watch any of today's shows. Feel like it would be a waste of money.

I can agree with you in some ways but in general I don't feel so negative towards the modern technology The medical treatment became really better, as also the equipment for making tattoos like here http://tattoo-journal.com/top-10-best-tattoo-kits/, mobile telephones, computers and so on... A lot of positive sides in all of that!
I remember such days with the VHS too but I can't say that I really miss them because nowadays all that stuff is much cooler and simplier And if you don't like smth, you can just not to use it
I don't buy the DVDs but I buy the CD with music of my favourite bands

And stupid people existed always, despite the modern technology...

Yes and no. Yes, because cell phones and iPads make contacting others and getting information much much easier than the "old days". No, because so many become glued to their devices that they forget the simple pleasures of visiting someone in person, a nice walk in the park, getting glued to a great
Book etc.

I'm not a fan of Facebook, Twitter, or social media in general but I will say this.....

Everything in moderation.

Too much of a good thing is never a good thing.

What's a shame is a lot of jobs were lost in the computer age. Not as many people are needed in an office and other jobs as in the old days when work was done manually not all computerized! Also cyber bullying and stalking became a problem do to modern technology!

Other than that it is really cool and fun! Look at all the cool conversations and fun we have right here on Sitcoms online ! Meeting new friends here and on other website forums! And cellphones are really practical,having access to a phone wherever you are ,esp.in emergency or dangerous situations, it's great to be able to call for help at your finger tips!

I'm okay with computers and social media. That's how I met a lot of my online friends like on here, talked with my cousins I have never met before on Facebook. Only thing I don't like is when people sit in a room 80 out of 100 people are on there phones and the other 20 such as myself don't have a smart phone sit there and like uhhhh what do I do now since no one communicates with anyone.

To be politically correct, lets not call Facebook crappy.
We would not want to offend anyone.But we can call it what it is:
junky
lousy
trashy

Twitter,although I do not like it to transmit information,it is good to receive information from important people who have a life worth reading about.
Renting a movie for me was more along the lines of once every leap year.
That is not true,but I only remember renting about four or five times ever.
Only thing I can recall on orange VHS was Rug rats,not that I watched that,but do remember having ,or still may have one.
The DVD is going the way of the CD,and what had happen to it around the year 2000,where people were download from Napster for free.

According to Researchers, There are reports that using Facebook makes your life worse and makes you feel jealous about other people's lives. And it's also a fact that Facebook is all full of drama. People complain all the time on there and are always negative. That's why Facebook does suck and why I quit using it. Facebook will ruin your life , and even worse if you become addicted to it.

To be polite here Sir, who cares if it's politically correct? I know I don't

Actually if you're referring to computers , they have been around since the 1940s, so they are not really "modern" technology

Well...I did lose a friend in my Facebook friends, but that's his loss...

I was ranting about Cleveland when the Cavs were 1-3 in the NBA Finals (That series is probably going to be the top-10 NBA Finals), but the wife of my ex-pastor said don't take it personally... he's trying to move-on.

And yes...sometimes modern technology eats! I'm writing this on my tablet and sometimes they'll insist another word that I didn't write (I would write Cavs and they insist that I wrote Cave)! I'll never let go of my VHS, I even have tapes that are 20 years old and work VERY well!
