From the birth of the first computer, computers have already been in the world for about one hundred years. As the development of social economy and the improvement of people`s living standard, computers have gradually entered into differently kinds of career areas and common people`s home, becoming an indispensable part of work and living.
There are mainly two opinions over computers` influence on our life nowadays: some people believe computers have made life easier and more convenient; however, other people believe computers have made life more complex and stressful. So far as to me, I will accept the first opinion because the benefits computers give us are far more than its negative influences on us. It`s can be illustrated in details as follows.
As we all know, computers have made our work or study much more convenient and easier. For example, a company, who has many branches and a great number of employers, can record its running conditions and keep employers` archives in computers, which will save much more time and manpower. For students like me, we can consult the library`s data our studies` need through Internet at home.
Besides, computers have shortened the distance between people in much extent. We can communicate with our friends living far away from us by e-mail and talk to each other freely on Internet by ICQ. So resorting to computers, we can keep and build friendship and understand each other deeply. For an instance, one of my classmates, has known a boy on Internet and now they have become the best friends.
To tell the truth, computers have indeed brought some bad influences on people`s life. The sudden virus will make computers loss their data completely; some criminals can take in people` money on internet and so on. But all of these are only a small part and can be improved with the use of more effective safety precautions.
