Pros and Cons of the Advancement in Technology


The new millennium has truly created a big mark and an impact to the lives of many people. This is the point wherein the world has become more advanced when it comes to the production of goods and services, the point where technology has brought convenience and ease of mind. Let us all face, without these newly developed technologies, life will sure be hard, tasks will not be completed with just a snap of the finger and things will have to be done manually.

Before, our ancestors have survived doing things on their own. But right now, it is doubtful that an individual can do his tasks with his own bare hands. It is simply amazing how our ancestors managed to live on their own but still, they have served as an inspiration to all of the people to never give up and to always strive hard to survive. Though there were no technologies before, they used natural resources to aid them with their activities of daily living. What they have discovered were just developed by the generations that have passed by. Their ideas were utilized well and have contributed towards the development of a better world.

The development especially the production of different high end technologies such as the cellular phones, televisions, computers, appliances, cars and a whole lot more is as fast as the effects of the most powerful stun gun. Developers or manufacturers are making more and more technologies every single day just to provide and meet the demands of all the people.

But has the world become better with the breakthrough of technologies? It is hard to take sides but we will learn the different advantages and disadvantages that technology offered. One common disadvantage that we all have noticed or probably have already developed inside of us is that we have become so dependent on the different technologies. Things that can still be done with bare hands have been forgotten. What could have been easy to do by the self have been covered by being too dependent. It makes people lazy and this can affect the social aspect of an individual.

There are some countries that still belong to the third world country which means that the advancement of technology has not yet being introduced and thus greatly affects the growth of their economy as compared to those well developed countries. The academic performance of an individual may be affected as well due to the different forms of video games or online games.

If there are disadvantages, of course there are also advantages. One of the advantages that technology gave to this world is that it made things to be done efficiently and without any delay. Access to information is easy and even doing transactions can now be made possible with just a few clicks of the mouse. Shopping can also be done through the use of the internet. You can purchase a special form of self defense device like the stun guns online. When you say convenience, the different technologies can offer that to you.

It is really up to the individual as to how he will balance things. It is just important to always bear in mind not to be so dependent and if you think you can do the job, do it yourself. You might forget what you have learned if you depend so much on high end technologies right now.
