Computers and the Impact on Society

I chose this topic because I have always liked computers. I live in the new era where I’m surrounded by them and I use them. These is a really interesting topic because it helps us understand the impact computers have on our society and makes us think if its something positive or negative? What can we use the computer for? If we have hightechnology computer what will the future bring?

As we know, computers have being a really big impact since they first came out. The idea of having a computer at home was unbelievable, and the only ones who had the pleasure to own them at first, were big companies and the government. With our world changing and technology moving forward, it became accessible to any individual. Thisbecame a huge success worldwide bringing new resources and a new lifestyle. Nowadays we use the computer almost for any task daily and we can’t even see ourselves without one. How is it that millions of years ago, they did not have one but it didn’t matter? We use computers for everything, in our jobs, at home, and most of all as a way of communication. Computers have helped us in every waypossible, but is it helping us in a good way or a bad way? Is it making our life simpler or more complicated? Could we live without them?. Computers make our life easier in every aspect and that is a god thing, but for some people is bad. This is making us to rely more on computers instead of doing things by our own. It seems that we cant live without them now that we use it for almost every task we doand almost everywhere.
