    The statement is not a general one to omit article and it's not specific to use 'the'.

    Revolutionary slim technology with HIF - is correct
    The article would relate to 'technology' and is not used.
    compare
    Technology has been at the forefront of the great advances made.....
    Science continues to benefit humanity....

    compare
    A revolutionary technological breakthrough

    present tense:
    I do
    He/she/it does
    they/we do

    Dear Mr.David L

    you have said Revolutionary slim technology with HIF - is correct with no article.

    In the next two sentences you have rightly said that
    Technology has been at the forefront of the great advances made.....
    Science continues to benefit humanity....
    These are general in nature and the article is not used. But in the very next sentence "compare A revolutionary technological breakthrough"
    You have used A
    Is it a typo error. I think the correct answer is

    A Revolutionary slim technology with HIF

    search for a revolutionary and the revolutionary has thrown a lot of links.

    Hello Venkatasu.

    I think that both are possible depending on the circumstances.

    However, in "A revolutionary technological breakthrough", the indefinite article 'a' describes the noun 'breakthrough'. It doesn't describe the adjectives, 'revolutionary' or 'technological'.

    In, "A Revolutionary slim technology with HIF", the indefinite article 'a' describes the noun 'technology', not the adjectives 'revolutionary' and 'slim'.

    I agree, N2G. That's exactly one of the differences I had envisioned, an ad in a magazine or on the internet.

    You know that you can edit the title in all of your responses if you so desire.
