Question: How has/ is technology changing our daily lives?

At the rate that technology is evolving, it has become more difficult to predict the future. Within a short period of time, there has been a far- reaching change in the technological sector and its impact on people’s daily lives has been felt. With the time and the evolution of technology, there are new products in the market all the time but only some will manage to actually stay. What may seem very handy and useful today may not be tomorrow. As been experienced new technology will appear in many lives, it will either remain in one’s life or change it.

Technology has indeed changed the lives of who have come in contact with it but some changes are more direct and then others effects are more permanent. Technology has changed so much to the extent where it has changed the way one gets along and through their life. The top ten revolutionizing items have come down to be the computer, cell phones, ipod, internet, debit cards, DVDs, satellite TV, contact lens, digital cameras, and the washing machine.

While some may believe that technology has and is sabotaging many lives, others believe that the development and improvement of technology has greatly improved lives. There is multiple ways through which technology has changed lives; some of them include such things like the rise of internet technology, virtual banking systems, and social networking websites. When one thinks about how technology really impacts our lives, they come to the conclusion that everyone uses some sort of technology every day of their life and some of these things are uncontrollable. Technology is making life easier in many ways but there have been researches where it has been proven that technology is ruining people mentally.

While researching my question, one thing I found very interesting is the article Modern Technology is Changing the Way Our Brains Work, says Neuroscientist. Susan Greenfield stated in her article, “Unless we wake up to the damage that the gadget-filled, pharmaceutically-enhanced 21st century is doing to our brains, we could be sleepwalking towards a future in which neuro-chip technology blurs the line between living and non-living machines, and between our bodies and the outside world.” Greenfield makes various points on how technology has become a negative effect on people’s lives. There is nothing new about how the human brain has been changing, developing, and adapting, but our brains are under the influence of an ever- expanding world of new technology.
