First of all, people spend more time on technology than anything else. According to the researchers at the University of California, San Diego, "At home, people consume 12 hours of media a day on average when an hour spent with, say, the Internet and TV simultaneously counts as two hours. That compares with five hours in 1960." People would check their social media, play games and surf on the Internet many times a day. According to the article, "Attached to Technology and Paying a Price", "In 20...

Should Hoverboards be banned?

I think that they should be. Yes, they might be fun, but only until it sets someone's feet on fire. It is reported that there were at least 77 hoverboard accidents that happened in the first 5 days since Christmas. One hoverboard destroyed a $1 Million dollar home located in Nashville, Tennessee on February 10th. The house held a Mother, Father, and a Son and a Daughter. They got out alive, but with burns and no shelter or food. Hoverboards have also exploded. These items cost at most $10,000 de...

Technology: Reducing the quality of Human Interaction

vortex86
OsamaTheCityzen

As the con, I am taking on the role of arguing the negative ramifications of technology (in use). Specifically in regards to the quality of human interaction. Note - I agree that technology is a tool and not an agent in which would be responsible for its actions. I'm discussing the usage of said technology only and the effects therein. For the purposes of this debate, human interaction will be defined as the effect in which we act and react to those around us. Unless an alternative agreed...

Is Android better than Apple?

In my opinion Android is better than Apple. One passage that supports my thesis is Android has a larger variety of devices. For example you can get a compact phone, something with a huge touchscreen, a stylus, a rotating camera, an edge screen, or even a physical keyboard. From this passage I can infer With a larger variety of devices the price ranges change. So if you can't afford a new Apple phone which can cost from 600-900$ a cheaper alternative is an Android phone that might not be as well...

We will debate on three parameters for an everyday family vehicle. 1. Practicality/convenience - Ex Price, fuel time, maintenance 2. Efficiency - Ex Toyota prius returns 56 mpg, or Toyota prius is 26% efficient. 3. Environmental impact - Ex Materials, manufacture, emotions etc... I'm taking Hydrogen fuel cells. Con can argue that Natural Gas, diesel, gas hybrid, battery electric vehicles etc... are better. Whatever they feel more comfort...

Is Android better than Apple?

Apple iPhone's are better because people think that Apple iPhone's look better. One fact to consider is one record for Apple is they've sold over 4 million iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 pluses on day of release. Most supporters of the iPhone suggest that Apple phones are better because they look better. This means a better design will make more people buy the phone leading to higher sales. This shows that Apple focuses on the design of the phone as well as the features. It also shows Apple cares about w...

Should the government give wireless internet to everyone?

anna.h
nicnacpatttywack

I believe the government should not give wifi/wireless internet to everyone because not everyone may need it. I do think it can be useful for some people but the rich do not need this charity. It would be merely wasting the government's money that could be used for other causes....
