GRE Issue Task Review

Recommended Posts


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

Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the statement and explain your reasoning for the position you take. In developing and supporting your position, you should consider ways in which the statement might or might not hold true and explain how these considerations shape your position.


Technology, instead of simplifying our lives, has made it even more complicated.

Technology is a great enabler. It has simplified our lives more than the complications that have arisen due to it. Today, it offers a plethora of solutions for everyday problems ranging from ordering food from a nearby restaurant to ride hailing services. It is not surprising that many a people cannot think of a world without the ever watchful eyes of technology.

 There is hardly any convenience related service that is not addressed by the technology existing in our times. The invention of telephone by Graham Bell was a ground breaking step in the way that man communicates. Sitting at home a prospective student can apply to any number of universities of her choice. This is the power of the internet, a gift from the womb of technology. The security infrastructure has greatly improved with technology with inventions such as the closed circuit television which enable us to monitor any suspicious activity for the safety of the general public. There is even the baby camera for working professionals which allows them to keep track of the baby while still being able to devote time for work.

It is perhaps the immense benefits offered by technology, that it could be said that in some ways we have become hugely dependant on it. The amount of social interactions has decreased as people have replaced it with a simple test or voice message. A sense of lethargy is seen in people for tasks which they would otherwise have preferred to do the online way. Also there are cases of hacking by individuals and organisations into personal details of the general public which has been a cause of concern.

By carefully measuring between the pros and cons, the cons of technology cannot be counted as a concession to the wide range of benefit that technology offers.
