Non I would say. In fact, in certain circumstances the technology we use today, has some fairly major drawbacks. For example, modern flat screen TV’s use less power, are much cleverer than their ancestors, give a sharper picture, but I have seen many of them wrecked by being hit by the plastic paddle of the new game consoles.
Not too surprising, it’s only a thin sheet of glass you need to crack to completely wreck them. If it was an ancient CRT display, well it’s evacuated so needs a fairly substantial curved glass front, and something less than a hammer would just bounce off. (Just as well, as an imploding CRT would spray glass all over the place)
Modern semiconductors can be destroyed by an electromagnetic pulse, such as an atomic bomb going off, or from a celestial event. Their old forerunners (valves) would simply flash over, then continue unharmed. Damaging electronics simply by touching them when you are not earthed, was unheard of prior to the advent of CMOS devices.
It really depends on your definition of an ‘advancement’ in technology.
I once had a car that had ‘sealed for life’ parts, requiring the complete replacement of the half shaft, CV joint, and dive splined shaft, simply because the bearing had packed up. £200 worth, for a £10 bearing.
While on the subject of cars, about 90% of breakdowns could be fixed at the roadside, with a screwdriver and a bit of knowledge. Today if the car stops, well, you are comprehensively screwed without a dazzling array of diagnostic equipment, and a computer.
Technology getting better? I figure the reverse is the case, it’s making stuff worse! :>)
