TECHNOLOGY FOR OUR LIVES

Technology is the usage and knowledge of tools, techniques, crafts, systems or methods of organization. Technology nowadays constantly seems to seep its way into our daily routines. Everything we do is somehow connected with technology, whether it for working or studying and helping our life. Without technology, life would be more difficult than it already is, knowledge would be limited and more difficult to achieve. The task of technology is to create a better and easier living for ourselves and for the world.



Now I will take some example of technology today, such as Personal digital assistant (PDA) that lightweight, a hand-held computer designed for use as a personal organizer with communications capabilities; also called a handheld, Electric Cars With Plug In Technology, Laser (Light Amplification Stimulated Emission Of Radiation) Is a Mechanism of emitting of light within Electromagnetic Wave radiation based process of stimulated emission, hand phone, mp3 players and so on.
Looking back in time, we realize how much our lives have changed due to the fruits of technology. It has provided us with freedom and less consumption of time and resources. A nation's economic growth can be measured according to the level of technology. This is because a number of factors are responsible for affecting an individual's life style. The most important factor for deciding the working of a particular technology is the presence of competition. Technology has affected society and its surroundings in a number of ways. In many societies, technology has helped develop more advanced economies (including today's global economy) and has allowed the rise of a leisure class.
With the advent of technology, people are building bridges to decrease the distances in their mind. One basic drawback that has taken place is that people are becoming lethargic due to high trends in technology. It is shortening our ability to pay attention. Robotics, automation and computerization are on the go for changing our lives. Implementation of robotics will give higher efficiency and cheaper labor, thereby increasing unemployment rate.
Technology is so integrated with our lives today. Various influences, both positive and negative, of technology already we feel together.

POSITIVE:
The positive effect is that it accelerates what one person can do. With tech you can make one person do much job in same time and do things quickly and better. With tech, you can protect yourself by encrypting all your transmissions, however it makes it that much easier for someone to protect truly harmful transmissions like child porn or criminal activity. Overall, and in a modern sense, tech decentralizes the power and control over the media and distributes it to regular people creating a more democratic society. In the same way, it destabilizes society by challenging the authority of institutions within that society who need to centralize power to maintain that control that does provide stability. However, the emergence of tech will show that old institutions are no longer needed or have to modify.
NEGATIVE
The reality is that today’s society is so dependent on technology. for example almost every family has a television, there are even families who have more than one television. In addition, almost everyone has a mobile phone that can be used to access the internet and open facebook or twitter. as a result, people spent much time in front of the television  and browse the internet for updating status on facebook and twitter, or play games on line through mobile phone, laptop. Without parent’s guide the children can be access the porn sites or bad ones that very unsuitable for them because they can not filter whether is true and false exactly.
In our opinion, now the community is very spoiled with technology and highly dependent on technology. For example to calculate ( sum, subtraction, division) we rarely use our brainpower, but rather use the calculator to solve them.
In other hand technology sometimes makes bigger unemployment because the job that was taken by 100 people now can do by a machine just a click. Unemployment is a serious problem for government because sometimes increase the criminal because they can’t have enough money for fill up the life budget.
Now the other side of technology is not so green. It is because of improvised technology only that we have seen nuclear and atomic wars. Many technological processes produce unwanted by-products, known as pollution, and deplete natural resources, to the detriment of the Earth and its environment.
Hence, one must know how to balance between manpower and automation. In the world of automation, cars have created freedom as well as concrete jungle. Technology is affecting our near future so it becomes our responsibility to streamline it in the right direction.
