  2. Not necessarily. If there's no demand for the scientific discovery, then the technology won't be developed to produce a product.

  4. Science implies understanding - or at least an attempt to understand. Primative cultures don't understand why their crops grow, but that doesn't stop them developing a basic technology to help them with the harvest. That would be a case of technology arising from necessity, without science appearing in the equation at all. However, if science IS present, it would be difficult offhand to think of a situation in which technology hasn't been far behind - even though as Ms Sue said above, it's not inevitable.
