ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES OF TECHNOLOGY
At the beginning of the 21stcentury, new inventions have made the life of human remarkable comfortable. Allah has made the humans best creation in this world and blessed human with excellent brains. The human using the qualities of remarkable thinking is continuously developing today. It is the era of technology and due to technology man has inventions things that human amaze.
Humans are developing today is only because of technology and this will continue with the passage of time. New technology is inventing day by day rapidly which has changed the thinking and lifestyle of humans. If we observe the modern technology is beneficial to human but at the same time, many things have also been invented that are directly harmful to human. There are countless advantages and disadvantages of technology which are discussed below in detail.
DISADVANTAGES OF TECHNOLOGY:
Yes, there are many advantages of today’s modern technology without any doubt but the latest technology has made the lives of human also challenging. Fast working machines have reduced the importance of humans. There was a time when a man has so much importance due to his work but now change has come, the machine is considered more reliable then the humans, therefore the ratio of unemployment is increasing day by day which is an alarming situation for everyone.
The rate of crimes has been increased because robbers or theft use the latest technology for wrong activities. Terrorist activities are on peek in these days, terrors are using latest mode of technology such as computers, mobile phones and the internet for doing terror activities. There are countless benefits of mobile at the same time there are many disadvantages of mobile.
Mobile phones have easy to remain in contact all the time but there are many negative effects of using mobiles as recent research it has been said that mobile phones are dirty more than washrooms. Moreover, today’s youth is destroying due to excess and negative use of mobiles. They waste their important time to chat and talk for many hours.
Even mobile phones are causing to disturb families.
The Internet has many advantages if we use it positively but it is being used negatively now. It has been noticed in recent years that most people searched for vulgar data. In addition to cyber crimes are increasing quickly. The Internet is using for planning terror and wrong activities in these days. Social media is also affecting the humans it has caused many people around the world.
Atomic energy is being used in various ways to help humanity but one should remember it can also be used to destroy the whole world in few minutes as we have the example of Hiroshima when atomic bomb was thrown and a huge of number of people died and thousands of received major injuries that cannot be recovered ever. Latest transport is causing environmental pollution. The environment is rapidly changing due to pollution that’s humans are directly affected by it.
ADVANTAGES OF TECHNOLOGY:
With the advancement of technology, numerous things have been invented over the year for the benefit of humans. Our world has been converted into a global village. If we observe we will find the man has invented technology only for the benefit of humans and now even we have become the habitat of technology. There are many technology-based things have been invented such as cars, TVs, Computers, Mobile Phones, microwave oven, atomic energy etc.
We will discuss here the role of some extraordinary technology:-
The most extraordinary invention has been the computer. The computer has made the life of humans very easier and comfortable. The use of a computer can be seen in every field of life today. The computer has changed the way of acquiring of education, education was never easy and reachable as it has become now due to the computers, even you can get education sitting far away from institutions through distance education.
The computer is perhaps used vastly in the medication field after education. If we look into the past it was hardly difficult to discover the disease of the patient but now the scenario has been changed because it is now being done by the computers. Computers are playing a vital role in saving their lives. Laptops, tablet PC, Touch PC are the latest form of computer.
The Internet is another great proof of today’s modern technology. The world has changed into a global village with the internet along with computers. The Internet has made easy to communicate as it never was before. We can even make contact sitting thousands of miles away to each other. Online education, online earning, online purchasing, online business, online shopping, online free of cost talking these all facilitations are only because of the internet.
Natural resources are not enough to fulfil the demand for electricity due to the rapidly growing of population. Therefore man had to look deep for alternative of energy sources. So man has invented atomic energy, a huge amount of electricity can be produced thus many developed countries are using atomic power to fulfil their energy requirements.
The use of technology is not a bad thing but excess use of technology is harmful to humans. Machines have been placed instead of humans and we are completely depended on these machines. Atomic energy is common these days but this should only be used for peaceful purposes instead of in wars. Technology has made the life of humans comfortable but maybe it is the biggest disadvantage of technology. if we use technology in a good and positive manner it will help us.
