Good tech is good tech, bad is bad...  It isn't any different for autists than the normal population.  The same principles apply; safe, age appropriate, not obsessive, useful tools for individual circumstances.  If there are specific talents or interests in tech then expand it and invest in it!
If used for communication and downtime to help them relax I say yes. To sit on all day everyday to play games, no. Always encourage and provide opps to engage and socialize.
