Today our world has known a huge transformation in modern technologies as it is surrounded by us mostly everywhere today and everyday it’s getting developed. Technology has a great impact and influence on people these days and of course without today’s technologies it would be difficult to get things done. Although modern technology is very useful and it helps us a lot and makes our life easier, and like everything else it also has advantages and disadvantages. No one can object that technology is one of the best things man has created, so technology in general has made life simpler and keeps people in touch even though they are thousands of miles away from each of other. So usually people are very dependent on today’s technologies like internet and cell phones and those two are two of the most important features that are impossible to get rid of. But, people should start to think of our technologies in a better way because it is being used by lots of people in a negative way and this will lead us to a disaster in which we will never know how to stop it and it looks like from now it’s hard to begin to change people’s thought. So what I am going to discuss in this essay is to proof that technology is leading us to dead end if we didn’t change our thoughts of it. First of all, the conflict between technology and thinking, then technology and its effects on children and youth, technology’s effect to our environment and increasing pollution, the relation between modern technology and increasing obesity and the effects of technology on society. So, although the benefits of technology are evident, we should take its negative effects more seriously. Technology and computers have shaped our world in many ways, today with our huge technological revolution many people depend on modern technologies, for example, computers, internet and calculators. There is a big relationship between technology and thinking, from the moment all those things were invented people mostly cancelled their minds and stopped thinking and god has gave us our mind to use it in a good way and correctly. Although these inventions have really made our life easier but that doesn’t mean we should cancel our minds and make those machines do our work always. Moreover, the society may be happy with all these but thinking ourselves and leaving the most hard obstacles to computers is the right way in my opinion, so we shouldn’t be depending on them mostly and always people should be reminded that we should think. Author: Hall, Brian R. , p119-127. And to proof that our mind is great and can do amazing things without depending on any computer is that our grandparents and elders used their minds to invent todays technologies and what we see today in modern technologies they thought of them without using any kind of computers or calculators. So in my opinion our minds created modern technologies and if we stopped using it we will never make progress again and will be stuck with a disaster. The evolution of internet and World Wide Web are having a serious effect on youth and children by many different ways, internet and web surfing are one of the reasons of wasting a lot of time which young people will regret for losing it and as todays technologies like computers, cell phones, emails make things faster and people are dependent more on them because everything now goes by just one click of a mouse. All these things occur but without any physical presence and young people are losing their shape and fitness by just relaxing with their portable gadgets; moreover, social networks nowadays are making another serious problem because today everyone just keep looking into their phones, although social network makes you connect to thousands of people around the world but it makes us secluded from the real world and nowadays we can find that when...
