Does technology help you save time or make you waste it?Technology has taken part as a really important way of evolution in ourlives since ever. We have grown up with it since we were little and weare still living together and it can be a distraction or even a useful tool.However, there are arguments both for and against it.One of the main advantages is that thanks to mobile phones, forexample, you can keep in touch with any friend you had and who is faraway from you, or even if something happened to you and you needhelp or you need something, you can call anyone you like and ask himfor it. Another argument in favour of technology is that the internet alsohelps you if you want to search for something, for instance if you have todo a project about "The Boston Tea Party", you only need to look for it onthe internet and then you are suppose to find a lot of information aboutit.On the other hand, technology also makes you waste your timebecause of programmed obsolescence which help the technology tobreak up more easily, and it means that you have to take care of itevery time and protect all your technology system, so it wouldnt breaktoo easily. Moreover, the internet is a kind of addiction and it makes youkeep looking at things which can attract your attention, but which arenot necessarily important.To sum up, I believe that technology is useful for us because we canbecame more intelligent and more confident with ourselves if we learnhow to use these innovations in a good way because if we abuse of it,we will become lazier and we would be addicted to it and this wouldntbe useful for our evolution.
