You may have seen how many new computer gadgets and tech-gizmos are being sold on the markets nowadays. Technology has truly marked a significant jump in its class. But as good as it gets, people are getting more lazy, more spoilt and more dependant on the hi-tech toys. Okay, so it really is easier, and technological items can be of great help to us, but should we only depend on computers to do our work?
There are many critics of technology, and I absolutely agree with some of their reasons. For starters, think about our children – think about the future generations. As we used to play hide and seek, tag, and many others yard games, nowadays our little ones just sit in front of their computers all day long, playing Counter-strike or World of Warcraft. Computer games are really fun, but playing a game all day and night, significantly destroys our children’s socializing skills. I`ve seen kids being afraid to talk to each other – now, could someone explain how is that helpful and healthy? If a boy is afraid to talk to girls, except online of course, how could he create a family on his own?
Many kids are being objects of social humiliation, and are judged by the count of friends they have in Facebook, Twitter and other social networks. What happened to the good-old verbal communication? What happened to the old school methods of doing things? For example, yesterday I saw a robot vacuum cleaner. Can you imagine that? Will robots take our jobs and work places? If this happens, how will the cleaners in Melbourne manage to feed their families?
People are getting more and more spoilt by technology. Okay, some inventions are really convenient and useful, like the cleaning machines used by large companies such as cleaning services Melbourne for instance, not fully automatized, but doing a great job. But think for a while – imagine that something happens and there is no more electricity. The horror! The people will be in pandemonium, chaos will be all around. And with us being so affected and used to modern technological cleaning tools, our faith will be nothing else but global “mouldification”. Hard to clean-up when you don’t know what a broom looks like.
Technology is truly great, but we have to think about the downfalls of it. I am not saying that you have to stop checking your e-mails or downloading videos cause you will die, no – that is not my point. My point is not to overdo it. Don`t allow technology to take the most of our precious lives.
