Question

"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.

Response

Technology, although at times difficult to navigate, makes our lives easier and more efficient. Thanks to technology, we can save money, time, and also be more connected to each other.

Thanks to technology, we can do tasks much faster than we did before and from the comfort of our homes. We can shop online, order a cab from our cell phones, or find the information we need in just a few seconds. Back in the days, when I was a student, I spent hours in the library navigating books. Now, almost all the information I need is available online, and just "one click away".

Not only technology saves us a lot of time, but enhances communications. In the era of the internet, we do not have to wait three days for a letter to arrive: we send an email which is received by the addresse almost instantaneously. We can also talk to someone who lives 10,000 km away on Skype at almost no cost.

Furthermore, technology can favor a better use of resources. Companies, for instance, save a lot of space and money since documents can now be digitally stored. Back in the days, computers did not exist and most of the information such as contracts, tax returns and bills was stored in paper. Consequently, companies needed to have big warehouses for storing purposes, which was a waste of space and money that nowadays can be used for something else.

It is true that technology can feel overwhelming sometimes, especially since it is constantly evolving and requires its users to be in a constant process of learning. However, even if at the beginning we need to invest a considerable amount of time to learn a new technology, in the end, it pays off. Take for example and older technology as a calculator and compare it with a newer technology like Microsoft Excel. It is true that Excel might not be the easiest thing to navigate when one is not familiar with it. Excel can be scary. But if you spend some time in learning its tricks, in the end it will save you a lot of time. Not only it allows to trace all the steps taken to make a calculation, but it is also much faster. It can perform complicated operations in just seconds that with a simple calculator would take days.

To sum up, despite some challenges that might come along with technology, when used wisely, it can signficantly simplify our lives and save us a lot of time.
