We are constantly being surrounded by technology, but are we too dependent on computers? I would have to say that people in society today are too dependent on computers. Computers have many good things to offer society, but sometimes it can keep people from experiencing or doing the things that really matter.
One of the things we depend on from a computer is basic research. The computer has allowed anyone to browse the internet for resources and helpful information. This has eliminated the need to go to a public library and find information from printed books, (Is Society Dependent on Computers?). People do not have to find their own answers anymore, they just have to type it into any search engine and find what they are looking for. This has caused many students to become lazy in their class work. They think, “Why do the work when the computer can do it for me?” The computer was created to act as a huge calculator and people still use it as a one. Math students no longer have to work out their own problems. There are so many math sites on the internet that will solve the problem for you that it takes away from learning anything, (How computers Have changed the World). Students have become very dependent on computers that if they were to not longer use them, they would have more work to do in their classes.
Computers are no longer trapped inside offices or houses, they are more portable than they ever were. On the windows of many restaurants and public buildings, we can see the wifi symbol in bold. Some people cannot even leave their homes without their devices or computer. It seems like their interests in socializing with society has lessened. If a person cannot leave their own homes without their computers, then it just shows how important it is to them and how dependent they are on it.
Computers are not all bad, they have helped the world grow. They allow for long distance communication and are extremely helpful in the business world. Without computers, many businesses would not have gotten far. Businesses rely on them for presentations, documents, inventory, history, and other important aspects of their company, (Feigenbaum, Eric). The economy is important in any country and it is with the help of computers that they keep in going. The business world has relied on computers for so long that there is no going back, they can only keep pushing forward. With computers becoming more advanced it can complete work quicker and do more than a person could ever do, meaning that less employees are needed, (BenWright)....
