When technology has a general meaning it is uncountable: ‘The country’s economic fate depends on access to foreign technology.’

Technology is a countable noun only when you refer to a particular area of activity: ‘The system uses advanced satellite technologies.’

Technology = (the study of) the use of scientific theories and methods for practical purposes: ‘Can you imagine what the world would be like without science and technology?’ ‘Space research has produced major advances in computer technology.’
