In the world we live in today every thing involves some sort of technology. We are surrounded by it twenty four seven and use it personally on a daily basis. At this very moment I am using technology to write this essay. Technology has made man kind life easier and has helped us a ton but it does have its disadvantages. We are too dependent on it. People are still able to live long healthy lives with out so much technology. All these advances are helping us at the moment but in the long run they are slowly killing us.

We also can do homework online even math homework on line where the teacher can't see if you did any work, you can just be looking up everything online. There is even physical education classes online. No wonder our country's obesity percent is extremely high. Everything we use now has auto correct including our cellphones. This is helping us, but what are you going to do when you have to write an essay on the spot without using any technology.
We depend on technology for our entertainment as well. We have become more obsessed with television, game systems, cell phones, music players, digital cameras, and computers.
