Technology plays a vital role in today's world. A day without it is unimaginable. It has been changing the lifestyle of people and eventually conquering one's home, leisure, and work activities. The benefits outstrip the disadvantages and this essay will explore both.
Firstly, the pros are more than the cons. Information technology makes work simple and consumes very less time. The duties that have taken a whole day in the past, now require less time. For instance, bills were paid directly going to the respective offices but now it can be done through online by sitting in our own house. Furthermore, IT provides knowledge that is essential for work-related. Referring to books now seems to be difficult as people are busy with their hectic schedule while browsing the information from the internet is easy and quick also.
Secondly, people are streaming OTT platforms for entertainment purposes. Games and other leisure time activities that make the mind relax are now easily available. Is it accepted by everyone? My opinion will be yes since people from all age groups can enjoy technology without any obligations because it satisfies all needs. For example, children are watching cartoons, which would help them to ameliorate their vocabulary and language.
But considering the disadvantages, teenagers are mostly affected. Younger generations are addicted to it and lack concentration while doing other activities. Although, small children enjoying the videogames it is necessary to play outside. If this scenario continues, children will not get a chance to cherish their childhood at most. The development of technology influences people to do cyber crimes which would, in turn, threaten their own life and the rates are also increasing.
In conclusion, I would like to reiterate that even though the technology had its own disadvantages but the benefits outweigh them.
