How Technology Has Changed Our Lives
There was a time when people didn’t have technology. They survived on the basics trying to improve their lives. This was the dark ages where there’s was stagnation of growth. Lives were difficult and many people died from various sicknesses and diseases. We were simply not well equipped. This changed as people began growing in education and discovery. People were brave enough to search for the new and create something that benefits every human.
As growth continued people’s lives began improving. People began understanding many things. People started becoming cleaner and learnt how to prevent and cure diseases. As more needs arose, people created something that filled that need. When it was required to travel, horses were used, roads were built. When many things were supposed to be transported for long distances, we created rail lines and railway. Step by step man moved forward culminating in new discoveries and revolutions that has shaped the world we live in today.
It is not an easy task to satisfy the wants of man therefore there’s always going to be something new. Because we want, we get. We use cars, ships, planes, railways to travel. We go on journeys that take only a few hours and would have taken days if we had taken it many hundred years back. We cross continents in mere hours. We are also able to communicate with our friends and family no matter where we are. Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram allow us to share pictures and details of our lives with many people. This has allowed us to become extremely social.
Due to basically having everything we need, our needs have become more specific. Even when it comes to a new TV or a new phone there are certain specific requirements people want. People want the best at lower costs; they want the stackable 9 cube organizer and so on.
These specific needs have also made our lives easier. We can call anyone a click away, we can easily get home office organizing store. This has been furthered by the internet where people can basically get any service. Shopping can easily be done on the internet and we can get everything delivered right to our doorstep.
Technology hasn’t been all positive due to many negative effects. People are becoming lazy, money hungry, secluded and anti – social due to bullying. There are crimes that use technology and there are technologies that can kill people. Dangers have always existed but the technological progress has benefitted mankind more than it has negatively affected us.
