De NouvellesTechnologies vs Des NouvellesTechnologies

Why isn't the first sentence "Qu'est-ce que vous pensez de nouvelles technologies ?" "New technologies" is a general statement, as speakers are not talking about specific tech, and the responder even answers by generally referencing "ces nouveaux appareils."

Hi Drew, 

What do you think of the new ( existing) technologies? 

would be the English, so 'de' doesn't work here.

Hope this helps!
