This paper discusses the interaction between technology and society by referring to the concept “apparatgeist” (literally means “spirit of machines”) raised by Katz and Aakhus . Based on a critical review of relevant social theories, this paper aims to explore the socio-logic in the technological development as well as the changing context for “perpetual contact”. It also shows its impact on the media convergence by assessing how mass media can be shaped.
