I think this is a great discussion question! Especially in today's society where technology is so heavily used and influential.

If it is the case that you're going to be tied to your devices to the exclusion of all else, you're definitely the servant. If you use technology to make your life more manageable so you have time to do other things, technology takes the place of the servant. Also, if you can't see yourself enjoying even a single day without technology, it means you're too dependent on it, though not necessarily a servant.
