Issue Task ( please tear it up, I want to get better)


Recommended Posts

Technology, while apparently aimed to simplify our lives, only makes our lives more complicated.

Ever since the revolution of the computer, Technology has been growing in our lives every year. While some see it has a savior. Many should look at the downfall it has produced in our society.  That is because technology in fact does not make our lives easier due to the rising cost, the jobs that it took, and the stress of keeping up with the trends.

              Technology has been ingrained into us as a way of life. This is detrimental to lower income families due to the rising cost of having any technology at all. For example, the newest iPhone could cost a family around a thousand dollars just to have the phone. What is not included is the cost of the cell phone bill which can cost the family around two hundred a month for one cell phone. This makes it difficult for families that have to sacrifice food on the table just to have a glimpse of technology in their household.

              The other reason why technology does make our lives more complicated is because of the jobs lost due to technology. While many young people looking to have a part time during high school to learn about the workforce may run into challenges now that technology has been a part of our society. For example, at many fast food establishments to cut the cost of hiring have implemented technology in the form of self-cashiers. This takes away from many people figuring out how money is really processed in our society. This leaves many without hope to learn how to properly figure out how to be productive in our world.

              While technology may harm the bigger picture, the small mundane tasks that we have to do on a regular basis may be helped by some form of technology.  As an example, making a list for groceries can be done just by typing it into your fridge that send a text to your cellphone. This can help many who are too busy to run back to the store if they forgot anything for their weekly groceries. Others task such as vacuuming can be accomplished through many different technologies such as the Roomba which can be set to help a family tidy up when they are busy with work.

All in all, technology does make our lives more complicated. This is due to the rising cost of technology and the lost of jobs to younger adults. While it can help with mundane task such as grocery shopping and cleaning, it is not worth all the hassle.
