    Hi,
    Thanks. But, don't you think it carries some negative connotation? Furthur, "has been a part of" sounds a bit stative, while I need a verb that shows the emergence of technology into human's life. Anything neutral?

    Many thanks to all the posters.

    Yes, it is mainly negative, although it is qualifiable as a positive or negative invasion. The phrasal "come into" might be what you are looking for.
