Well i agree with the first person that commented you can't just pick one.Well and even if you could pick more than one every coin has two sides.As i am going to show you in my comments.
Smarter,yes computers have made us smarter as when we need the information highway we can find vast amounts of information for anything we need.When in our lives growing up,you had to call someone,physically go to whom or where or what you needed.Now that wealth of information is on your desk from encyclopedias to any reference you need.
Dumber this one i am going to have to say on the this i don't think it has.Again if you need information for prescriptions you take you can get all the information online.If you need to reference a vacation your going to take,you can.If your child needs help with homework you have access to any information you want.
Productive-not all i think we are loosing more and more productivity at work and in our lives with things like smartphones and mobile technology.I think mobile technology was originally geared for business and commerce.I wanted to get a smartphone,but decided against it.If i need to facebook someone i will wait till i get home and attach myself to my laptop.I see people at work who out of 8 hours spend 3 hours a day texting,and i see at least 3 people in my department per day per 3 hours on the phone texting.In this country we need all the commerce and jobs we can get,i seen a special on television where one of the ambassadors of oriental country,once said that we aren't taking jobs from america,thay are giving them to us even at a record we can not keep up with,and the reason that we are giving them to the oriental work force,because we are not productive and we are lazy.
Lazy-ahh i started on that in my last section,yes we are becoming more lazy with technology,if you want the best price on something,you went out and drove around and then went to the place with the best price,or you called;now you just shop online.You needed to have something printed a document or photos,you went to a business and had a resume printed,or you went to the local photo processing store,so yes we are getting lazier,and i am all against mobile device.Soon you will text someone and they will be right behind you,is mankind going to one day even after many of millions of years of evolution forget how to speak to each other or for that matter are we going to forget how to speak,soon you will be able to text a message and hit mandarin or chinese or german and the mobile device will translate for you.So you sort of learned other languages,but you don't even speak your fluent langauage anymore.
More social,highly unlikely unless you think sitting at your Xbox and playing with someone on the east coast when they live on west coast is becoming more social,it is nice to be on a site and email someone and talk to them about hobbies or interests that you share with others in different countries,maybe writing physically to each other would be a good thing to do to stay social.
Anti-social,yes as i mentioned before we are becoming less social.In time i am waiting to see someone text me and ask; where are you, i am at the mall and lets say im in Mcdonalds and they say so am I.Where i'm at booth 5 i'm at 6.You have a better chance of meeting someone online to date than you do in real life.We look for companions and soulmates with our eyes first.We are attached to each other at the hip with an infinite extension cord.
No impact-well you read above what i had to say,so yes technology has a good impact on us and a very negative impact on us too at the same time.
