How harmful can technology be?
Technology as a whole provides us with a lot of benefits in our everyday life whether at work, at home, when traveling etc. But apart from these facilities and benefits, technology do possesses a lot of disadvantages that the ordinary media try to avoid in fear to displease their master which is capitalism!
These disadvantages ranges from ‘laissez aller’ attitude for example television which have largely contributed to the increase of obesity among children and young adults due to lack of physical activities, addiction from social network websites which provides more of a ‘voyeur’ attitude rather than keeping individuals in touch, harassment from mobile phones or via SMS, viruses or hackers which only aims at stealing your personal information and your bank account at the same time.
With all these disadvantages mentioned and others which haven’t been said, will these stop us from using these ‘precious’ tools of our everyday life? I would rather say NO! or in other circumstances it could also be YES! So its you the jury to decide!!
