Personal Computers And How They Change Our Lives
There is no doubt that in technology develops faster and faster the more time goes on. As progress speeds up, it also increases the options open to those who want to make it go faster. Unless something gives at some point, people will soon be ordering computers that are obsolete by the time they are delivered and switched on for the first time.
Computers have become a central part of everyday life and they have an influence on everyone, even those who never use them. As the technology involved becomes more refined, the amount we are able to do increases. Chances are that when you were a kid, you imagined you were on the television or in movies. Today, you can make that come true with some very basic software.
There are those who say that along with television, computers have destroyed the imagination of children and adults alike. When we had to sit in a cardboard box and make believe it was a sports car, we really had to work our minds. Now that we can experience a much more realistic simulation using computers, we have got lazy, or so the theory goes.
However, on the other side of things, the Internet has allowed a lot of people to give freer rein to their imagination by creating blogs, photo streams, and websites of real complexity. To say that computers are rotting our brains is to be grossly unfair. One might as well criticise the ancient Egyptians for inventing paper and thus paving the way for tabloid newspapers.
