That it does, but the title of the thread uses the term technology, which extends far beyond electrically-operated products. The common misconception is that anything that has anything to do with technology is computerized or uses electrical energy, and that's wrong.

In context, I'm speaking to your reply to Blood Red Lucario, which, in its nebulous and vague glory, says that there still exist primitive groups of humans that survive on relatively low levels of technology. But what needs to be made clear is the fact that they still use it, and simply calling it a pointless argument will never make that fact go away.
