Throughout history, technological
innovations have helped humankind improve their standards of living, beginning
with the simple invention of bone tools of prehistoric times, continuing on to
and beyond modern air conditioners, automobiles, and super computers. Nowadays,
when the rapidness of development and research is so impressive, it is easy to
think about the advantages of modern technology.
Modern technology has solved many problems that people face and play an
important role in the development of many countries. Modern technologies create
many kinds of products - computers, cloning technology, and video games etc.
Technology today has made life better and quicker in our modern society, people
can't see themselves without computers, cell phones, voice mail...etc... As we
look at technologies, questions are raised. The Technological progress makes
our society more convenient and safe. Making impossible things possible are
similar features of the change which previous people have experienced by social
change, like shifting from a hunting society to an agricultural society and
establishing a commercial society due to the invention of new tools. To
consider these advantages and change of society, modern technology, which we
use today, might be not only a new tool but also the tool, which makes a
dramatic change in history. However, the contribution of modern technology to
society should not be eliminated and should be distributed evenly.
The more advanced society becomes technologically, the more people begin to depend on
computers and other forms of technology for everyday existence. This means that
when a machine breaks or a computer crashes, humans become almost disabled
until the problem is resolved. This kind of dependency on technology puts
people at a distinct disadvantage, because they become less self-reliant. At
the same time, human workers retain less value, which is a disadvantage of
technological advances. Because machines automate processes and do the work of
10 people with one computer, companies find they don't need to employ as many
people to get the job done. As machines and computers become even more advanced
and efficient, this will continue to be a growing disadvantage of technology
and an issue that has a global impact.
