  1. I completely agree with you as technological convergence is the best thing ever. It just makes everything so convenient and easily accessible. We got the world in our hand in just few clicks, how great is that. But at the same time, there are more disadvantages like cyber crime, drugs dealer, hackers, addiction, communication problems…in a more complicated way. I don’t deny the great benefit we are enjoying right now but things are getting more dangerous when everyone is all anonymous.
