Computer technology is a revolutionary invention of this era.like many things,it has countless advantages to many drawbacks as well.
Technology in my opinion has proved to be more beneficial than cons.With the help of this invention,so many difficult and complex jobs have become just a matter of few seconds.People who have some physical illness or inability to go to regular office ,can work from home with the help of computers.Knowledge to any remedy,innovative ideas to fast communication have become a piece of cake.From being able to achieve very high level education online to shopping,internet technology has become such huge convenience .We can see all the options available for any item we want,simply by clicking on our computers.People can even watch events or merely anything live or recorded with the source of technology.
On the other hand,we sadly have some cons as well.Internet has made people so much dependent on it ,that it would be hard to survive without it.Regular basic methods of performing anything without technology is very uncommon.People do not even think what they would do if technology would be gone.Moreover,people do not think,spend their time and energy over something which is already available online.Majority likes to seek technology but to ponder and learn things themselves .Mathematics to common procedures,everyone likes to use easy approach instead of using their own brain power.
