Nowadays the older generation often claims that we as the youth are too dependent on technology, they say this because we keep everything on our phones or tablets and often don’t pay attention to our surroundings because we are too focused on what we have on our screens. Although what they do not understand is that technology makes everyones life easier because the old fashioned pen and paper is being “discontinued.”
Maybe some people have been too dependent on technology but for most people they use technology for the positives of it such as sending an email instead of writing letter and receiving it after a number of days as well as, technology is slowly taking over our social lives and slowly creeping into our relationships and everyday activities. Technology is not the major issue, it is people that use it and how they use it that portrays a positive or negative image to the public about technological advances. We as humans decide on how we use technology and how much that we let it affect our lives. Without technology there would be more bad than good because then cameras would not catch criminals. Everything has its flaws and although technology does stop a lot of children from playing outside because they are inside watching TV or playing video games which could potentially lead to an increase in obesity and laziness. But without technology how would we be able to communicate easily, prevent diseases and make jobs more doable, although in the process of making jobs more doable it does also decrease the amount of jobs people could have and to transport items more easily. Without technology prices would be higher because it would require more people and labor to create the things that we need in life that could have been easily done with technology.
