  • Too Dependent.

    We have become too dependent on computers for answers, personal interactions, and we spend way too much time on them. If we used the computers for learning and as a tool this issue wouldn't be as big. The sad truth is that people use this great tool for an easy way to get out of face to face interactions with other people. In 10-20 years it is said that there will be a computer smarter than the whole human race alive today. That is a scary future that we don't have to look very far to.

  • Yes, because we rely on them way too much.

    They kind of take over kids' everyday lives. Kids are always playing uneducated games on them. As soon as they get home from school, they head straight for the computer. We save too much important information on them as well. If the computer crashes, we will no longer have all of that information. And, we can't learn cursive writing anymore. When kids grow up, they're going to have jobs and will need to sign for things. They aren't going to be able to sign for those things because they won't know their signature! Even though computers are very useful for ALL places around the world, we still shouldn't be so dependent on them.

    We are too dependent on computers to do everything for us and soon we won't be doing anything but using our computers or cell phones to do everything instead of just trying it ourselves. So I clearly stated yes we depend on computers too much and I think we need to take a break from them every once in a while.

    People might think we are not overly dependent on computers but we are. We use computers a lot of times to download games, downloading apps, and also for lots of other things like using Facebook. When the computer or the internet go down, people freak out which shows we are entirely too dependent because we can't do anything without computers. For example if we want to pay we will pay from the net, if we want to buy we will buy from net. Humans are getting lazy because of this computer. Computers are to be used in good way, but some children used in wrong way.

  • Computers have taken over our lives.

    Computers are great things, and are very useful in everyday life, but they create a certain distraction which just overpowers our will to stay away from the computer. In our modern day world, computers are absolutely essential and all around us, at work, at schools, at malls etc. It is impossible to run away from these devices and we've become so dependent on it that we just can't do things on our own now. For example, say you were doing some homework and you couldn't figure out the answer, instead of trying to understand the problem or asking a peer for help, you go onto Google and find the answer. The attachment takes away from our independent thinking and will remain with us until we learn become less dependent on the computers.

  • Yes.

  • Our Children are the product of our Technology

    Thirty years ago, 90% of the kids were outside getting oxygen and playing sports. In addition, they were building forts and enjoying life. In this day an age, more than 75% of our children are playing video games and staying indoors. Now, our dilemma is that we are having a weight issue with our children. Child obesity is a growing concern with our nation.

  • Yes, I think so.

    Today’s people are too dependent on computers. Did you see kids in
    today’s world? They are relying on computers and cell phones.
    People are too dependent in today’s world about computers because they cannot do anything without computers. People are using too much computers. People use computers every time they use them for their jobs, games, TV and many other things.
    Today kids are too dependent on computers and cell phones. Kids play 6 hours a day on the XBOX on weekdays, 12 hours on weekends. HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THIS! This is the real world. This is not the kids’ fault. This is the parents’ fault that they let them play like that.

  • Yes, I think we are too dependent on computers.

    Are we too dependent on computers?
    Imagine the worst case scenario if you can, (no zombies or aliens please) that an EMP (electromagnetic pulse) went off in high-orbit of the earth’s atmosphere, and all electronics stopped working. Over half of the United States of America doesn't know how to farm, has never really been short of food, only walks to the grocery store or Speed-way when they get hungry. Most people have never really done any hard work by hand, or without electronic help. Short-term, we’re looking at looting, killing and pillaging. Long-term, it'll be cowboy days with wagons and horses, and probably a plague or two, but we are also looking at nuclear meltdowns. This means nuclear radiation affecting water supplies, soiling crops, and even cancer to whomever the fallout falls upon. This will devastate the new governments that are sure to pop up in the wake of the destroyed countries.
    Now bringing us back to the present--I have done a survey of 50 people at my school and 41 people out of fifty say yes we do rely too much on computers, while only nine people say we are not too dependent on computers. I believe we are too dependent upon computers.

  • We are too dependent on computers because we let computers take over our lives.

    We are too dependent on computers because we let computers take over our lives. For example, kids use at least one type of technology or computers a day. I've read lots of articles that agree. And what happens if all computers broke down? Life as we know it would be trashed. Nothing to do because all the games are on the computer. At last, how would modern life progress without computers? All human life would be hindered from moving forward with our lives!

  • In every school.

    Every school in American now has their own computers in almost every room. These computers could be personal computers that are brought from home, or computers that the school has for students to borrow during the day. The number of personal computers and school computers is growing greatly each and every day.

  • We use them constantly.

    We are too dependent on computers because we use them everyday constantly.Younger generations cannot do anything without using a computer. Video games, tablets, TVs and others. We need to use less technology. In this day and age, this is nearly impossible for any person because believe it or not, we all use computers or a type of technology once a day.

  • WE ARE NOT DEPENDENT ON COMPUTERS

    man created computers and today if we think of a year,month atleast a day without computer no person will be able to survive without computers the whole world will be stopped man invented computers to make our live easy and i don't think we are doing more than to make our live easy

  • Are we too dependent on our hands?

    Computers are an extension of the human body, just as all tools are. Would we say that people are too dependent on cars? Gas? Electricity? Toilets? Homes? All the arguments that the pro side are either invalid, or they don't realize that what they are saying applies to EVERYTHING. An interesting experiment for everybody, especially those on the proponency, is to take all the proponency arguments, and apply them to the word "house" or "car" or "paper" or "pencil" or "farming" are we too dependent on having a roof over our head? It's the same as having a computer.

  • No. Computers are tools essential for today's lifestyle.

    The invention of the computer has been effective and efficient. Computers offer a variety of resources from social networking, marketing websites, educational websites, software, databases, and so much more. With these resources, construction and creativity have increased, and you can connect with anyone around the world. Computers are also a fast and easy way for research, obviously faster than going to a library. We do not rely on computers too much; we merely use them for our aid.
    The technology of computers is an excellent way to help students so that they may learn better and be more productive. As computers advance, they will become more and more essential for today's lifestyle.
    Computers offer many advantages, such as:
    - Producing documents with ease
    - Business more efficient
    - Edit photos, video, and more
    - Share ideas worldwide
    - Being able to store large amounts of data
    - Extremely fast and accurate
    - Bridging cultural gap
    So you see, computers are certainly a neccessary part of our everyday lives.

  • We need them

    We as people on planet earth have technology to do almost anything. Its hard to name one thing a computer cant do. It can do just about anything. They can take care of kids, they can drive, they can mine, and they can do so much more. I honestly think that humans could be more reliant on computers.

  • There aren't many people that don't have computers

    No. Computers are tools essential for today's lifestyle. The invention of the computer has been effective and efficient. Computers offer a variety of resources from social networking, marketing websites, educational websites, software, databases, and so much more. With these resources, construction and creativity have increased, and you can connect with anyone around the world.

  • No, we are not dependent because they are a tool.

    No, computers and technology are helping to develop and enhance civilization and cultures around the world. Also, computers are merely tools that are used by mankind. True, it does distract us and video games can be classified as "Time Sucks" but that doesn't mean that it causes obesity, (being a lazy bum causes that). All technology/computers are is a tool, but like many things, it was turned into a weapon and a toy.

  • Computers are tools we made, not tools we need.

    We maybe unorganized if we stopped using them, but after time we would have everything sorted out and be living like before we had computers. The human raise and survive without computers therefore we don't NEED computers therefore we don't depend to much on them. We do not dependent to much on anything...

  • No. We are not dependent on technology. Specifically Computers.

    First we must define technology. What is technology? Technology is anything man has created to ease his burdens. One of the first forms of technology was the wheel. It allowed us to transport goods long distances with less effort. It is one of the main bases of technology. You may not say that it is technology, but it is. Anything that is not wholly and entirely natural is technology. A sharpened stick is technology, as simple as it its. The fact we have clothing is because we had wool which was taken off of a sheep and turned into thread. Yes we are dependent on technology, however so were are parents and grandparents and so forth. During the colonization of America we were dependent on tools to make the houses and farming equipment to grow crops. It is no different in our day. We are dependent on computers to manage the vast amounts of information that passes through our daily lives. We are dependent on phones to coordinate our plans with each-other. Computers are just one of our many tools that we use to manage our lives, just like a hammer is just another tool use for building a house. Yes we use computers more than necessary, I can attest to that in my own life. Yes there is a lot of recreation computers are used for. Yes we can cut back on the amount of time we spend in front of a screen, however I don't believe this will happen in the near future. Society has just become to complex for us to live without our tools. Computers are just one of many tools and many forms of technology we use.

  • No we are not too dependent on our computers .

    Without computers we can eat, we can drink, we can sleep....many more........yes we can say computers help us in our daily life for calculating, business, information, news, etc. Another thing is that people in our forefather's day were also living their lives without computers. Depending on computers also makes us lazy. So we are not too dependent on computers and we can live a health,wealth and happy life!!! :)

  • We are not "Dependent."

    People claim that computers contribute to obesity, lack of creativity, and that they destroy our life skills by doing the problems for us. I believe that 'Dependent' is the wrong word. First, Obesity is due to over eating and to little exercise. Computer's do not change how people eat and if we didn't have computers would that change the fact that people don't exercise? No. They would find another excuse. Second, computers are designed to create. Construction and creativity have increased since the invention of the personal computer. They give people access to software that allows them to create anything they desire. Third, in schools students are not handed a computer and a calculator and asked to type it in. They are handed a pencil and a paper and are forced to do the problem by hand the same way people have for centuries. Only after they prove that they can do the problem themselves are they given technology. We are not dependent on computers, we are simply aided by them.
