In recent years modern technology has become a very important part of our lives. We can see them absolutely everywhere: in stores, in cars, in hospitals, on a street and at home. A lot of people cannot live without them saying that technology greatly facilitates our lives. But some people think that that because of these people become stupid and lazy. Let us discuss this issue.
In my opinion, the technology is necessary for thr person to live in the 21st centry. Firstly, the majority of payments are now made through non-cash paying via cards. We cannot be able to make ordinary purchases witout them. Secondly, technology is helping us to spend less time on learning. It is much easer to find a book or manual on the Internet, than go to the store or library.
We can watch educational videos without leaving home. Thirdly, using a navigator is much easier and faster to get to the necessary place. This helps not to be afraid to get lost in unfamiliar place and enjoy travelling.
However, some people think differently. They are sure that because of the new technologies the person becomes lazy. With the advent of smartphones people began to prefer the social networking real meetings and walks with friends. Also modern humans is deteriorating, because it is easier to find the information on the Internet yhan by memorizing it. This increases the risk of Alzheimers disease in old age. What is more, smartphones and computers distract pupils from studing. They can spend hours on chatting or computer games.
But I am afraid I cannot agree with this opinion, because all of modern medicine depends on new technologies. They help people with disabilities or incurable diseases fell full and ordinary life and help to detect a dangerous disease and find the best way to treat it. If modern technology was not there, a lot of people would die.
In conclusion, I want to say that it is necessary to use the new technologies wisely. In this case they really help to improve our lives and help us become faster and smarter.
