In today’s world people depend too much on computers and modern technology. Do you agree?

Nowadays people use computers in business, public services, education and, most of all, in entertainment. Almost everything we do and every aspect of our life is affected by modern technology with computers above all.

There are a lot of advantages of such situation. Firstly, computer – controlled cars, planes or ships allow us to travel safely. Secondly, all the mental work we need to do, from simple equation to huge statistic data would be almost impossible without using the calculator at least. Finally, medical care and all the equipment used while helping people would not provide such results if led only by human hand. We should also remember about large branch of entertainment, from television and video with remote control to the Internet, all the children of modern technology.

However, some people are concerned by these developments. They point out all the failures made by computers that have done a lot of harm to people. Scientists fear that the vital skills can be lost by next generations as computer technology replaces traditional ways of working. Moreover, they predict the chaos that can occur when suddenly the systems fail to work or, what is worse, refuse to listen to people’s orders.

That is why in my opinion, computers and other developments of technology are useful and there is no possibility to live without them nowadays, as we got to much used to them. However, we should also work to find the ways of making our dependence on technology less dangerous for us. New developments should appear only when really important and helpful for people.
