      Technology saves us a lot of time, whether it’s our computer regulating our cars, washing machine for our laundry or Automated Teller Machine for our cash transactions etc. Carrie Snow once said “Technology is a queer thing. It brings you great gift with one hand and it stabs you in the back with the other. We are living in a world where it’s almost impossible to do without technology. It’s heavily relied upon on the daily operations of the hospitals, railways, airports, schools, hotels and so on.

      Honestly, in every invention there is always advantages and disadvantages. Some of which are; computers. It enhances better recording and efficiency. New Communication Technology. 4G provide a fast speed internet, mobile phones and WiFi technology have all contributed to a world where people and information can be  accessed from virtually anywhere. Digital formats. The digital format for storing information has revolutionized all sorts of information, from photos to documents and music to videos are stored and transmitted. New military weapons. Pilotless drones aircraft. For example, are becoming increasingly uncommon as technology advances. Summarily, technology is an effortless device used in handling life challenges.

      Contrarily, technology also has it demerits. Some of which are not limited to. Replacement of human effort. Human relations are diminished in the virtual world. As online social networking increasingly replaces face-to-face operations. Issues of privacy have become huge, as it becomes increasingly difficult to control personal information in the digital and internet world. Financial details can be hacked into. Personal photos and videos can be used for fraudulent means. Human roles. Human beings are less and less valued in the work place as their roles are replaced by computers. Thereby creating room for unemployment. Intellectual property theft and privacy. The internet have made it more and more difficult for creative people to make money from their output. Safety. Cell phones can be harmful to our body and brains due to the high radiation. Finally, technology have come to stay and there is no way we can erase the disadvantages completely but we can as well  minimize it to be on the safe side.
