The advent of Internet has accelerated the flow of the spread of information.
It is undeniable that the Internet has, indeed, made learning opportunities more accessible to adults around the globe.
E-book technology is a revolutionary breakthrough in modern civilization, which enable people to shake off thick and heavy printed books.
Existing information technology is not advanced enough to prevent information disclosure in cyber world.
With the increase in cyber crime, the reliability of the Internet has been highly suspected.
The mobile phone brings a revolution in the voice communication.
Technology has made people’s lives simpler, rather than more complicated.
When thinking about the issue that how has technology changed our lives, different people will have different ideas. While some people may believe technology has made people’s lives more complicated, I think that it enables people to live more simply. Because technology can help boost efficiency.
Firstly, in terms of work and study, people gain easier access to information than before. For example, compared to the thick and heavy printed books in the past, we can find what we want on the Internet with the click of a mouse. Besides, labor-saving machinery plays an important role as well. Nowadays, massive amounts of work can be finished by computer programs, such as keeping bank accounts. As for me, I sometimes write a computer program to do some complicated calculations.
Moreover, when it comes to the transportation, the ever-changing technology is even more impressive. Thanks to the advent of high-speed rail technology, we used to travel a day on a traditional train that could take a few hours. Taking myself as an example, when my parents drove me from home to the university in another city, it took almost a whole day. But after the high-speed line from home to my university being constructed, I can reunite with my family in about seven hours. Meanwhile, with the advances in airline, long-distance travel becomes more convenient. During the summer vacation, I traveled to Nanjing. From the time the plane took off to the time it landed, I even did not finish a bag of chips.
In conclusion, I would like to say that technology has played a significant role in making people’s life much simpler. And It is undeniable that we can enjoy an efficient life with technology. This is why I support this viewpoint.
