Has the world become overly dependent on computers ?

Technology has become inextricably in some people’s life. Technology has a great influence in our lives, but it has been depended on too much lately. We even use technology to do the most simplest tasks. We use it daily, but also see that it can have a negative effect on us . For me, the world has been overly dependent on computers. As we could observe, most of the people nowadays in this generation are using technology. Our whole world is run on technology. We have cell phones, televisions, computers, game systems, cars, even technology called the cloud where you are able to get information on different devices. People just use these resources like computers for our daily lives in order to save time and make things easier. Society are becoming increasingly dependent on computers and technology for functioning in everyday life. Every aspect of our lives has been affected by the infiltration of computers and technology. The modern civilization lives in the age of information and the whole information is concentrated in computers. Today, millions on servers all over the world contain the whole valuable information about the humanity and the World Wide Web called the Internet. The older ones are still getting used to the innovations in Information Technology and try to connect their life with computers to be able to follow the current news and the tempo of the dynamic world. Young ones spend the absolute majority of their free time in front of the laptop surfing the web and looking for entertainment. Computer games have become so popular, that children cannot imagine spending time outdoors, but play various computer games, which are often full of violence. Technology serve to help people and make their life easier and their activity more productive, but there has appeared a problem of the computer addiction or dependency, especially among the young ones. Computers can also lead to an educational environment where spelling skills are lost. Many word processing programs auto correct misspelled words and the writer never even knows that they have made a mistake. Technology are great things, and are very useful in everyday life. There’s so many reasons why technology are being used way too much. Some drives their vehicle while on their cell phones. They eat at dinner with their family while on their gadgets. Some watches television and are on their cell phones or computer. With the rapid growth of technology, there has been a debate on how we are using technology in our life. Many people think that we are now abusing modern devices to support for our own life. It makes our world easier to live as it helps people do all tasks effectively. However, that is not always true. Despite a wide range of benefits from modern technology, we can not ignore bad points it brings. Using modern devices for everything makes people more lazy and more passive in life. It causes the creativity of human beings to decrease which is very dangerous for mankind’s future.
