Technology, by definition, is always changing. We are more technologically advanced than we have ever been, but we are not as technologically advanced as we will be in the future. Some people are early adoptors of technology and live on the cutting edge.
These people may think we are very much advanced because they pursue the most innovative products. Others wait to adopt technology as it becomes necessary in their lives. Those who do not take up technology as early as others may think we are not very technologically advanced because they are less aware of what is currently possible.
