How often do we see people that have a walk with no obvious direction, staring into a phone screen, always typing something? How often do we feel ourselves lost and immobilized when an electricity or a battery charge of our gadgets go down? We all know that technology is making our life easier and helps us manage so many tasks, but look around, and you will see that our lives become dependent on it. Computers and cell phones are the main reasons why people become detached from reality.

Okay, if you think that the development of technology must be stopped, it means that you wanted everybody stuck on this kind of situation. For now, all of what you've said was particularly right. But, I think this is necessary for us to continue the development of technology. If there's a development of technology, it means that we can change this kind of situation to be better in future. Because, technology was developed very well, and it was going enjoyable and easier everytime. I believe that if we continue the development of new technology, we'll be free from that kind of problem that you've mentioned before.
Battery charge, I believe it was just a kind of consequency that we had to use that gadget. And I also believe if the development of new technology was continued, so the battery capacity of our gadget will also developed. Don't worry about this
If you said that we are dependent on this, yes because the technology was being our lifestyle. Because there are so many advantages from the technology, we don't want to go back to the conventional ways when we are going to manage so many tasks. You must be thankful for this development of technology. And, look at yourself! You used technology to do this debate, so this is contradictive with your topic.

First of all, I would like to tell that using technology in our daily life may be considered as a tendency. If the development stopped, that tendency would be forgotten pretty soon. Necessities only remain, like refrigerators, cars, planes etc. All the problems occur because people can always find something new on Internet, for instance, TV, cell phones and other technologies. Stop constantly renewing it, and we will lose our interest.


Secondly, let me introduce some problems caused by using too much technology:



  1. Internet addiction, widespread around people nowadays. Lead to stress and lack of social support within society. Learn more: http://www.helpguide.org...

  2. Computer games may cause young people to become violent. Increasing the risk of Repetitive Strain Injury and obesity. You can find more information here: http://www.cyh.com...

  3. Texting also may lead to bad grammar. Recent research found that students who text too much tend to have poor grammar skills. Supporting link: http://voices.yahoo.com...
