  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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, 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.

  • Yes.

  • 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.

  • No one has stated a huge valid point on why computers are taking over our lives & HERES WHY !!!! HOLD ON TO YOUR SEATS!!!

    Have you ever been in a room with six people and no one was talking? No one was sitting up straight , no one had their heads up, it was kind of a sulky , sad , depressing atmosphere right? That would be a typical American household in the future. If it hasn't hit your family by now, it will; bc it sure has hit mine. Everyone is constantly on their iPhones, iPads, or Galaxies (Which ARE computers) and they never ever plan on getting off of it.. The only thing they want to do is UPGRADE it. When Its at 15% battery life , someone will cry out "OH NO WHERES MY CHARGER I GOTTA CHARGE MY PHONE ITS GOING TO DIE" - you see that just hit me right there. The anxiety and fear and panic of a smeesly little phone is going to "Turn off" but we substituted it as "Its DEAD" , which clearly makes people feel like THEY ARE DEAD. They feel like they are nothing, like they are worthless. When someones phone does die they are instantly sad and bored and angry and they complain about how they're phone is dead and they wish it had battery percentage. Why are they feeling this down over a phone when there are 10 other people in the room they can converse with? The sayings "I CANT LIVE WITH OUT MY PHONE!" just mind boggles me... We ALL LIVED ONCE. We ALL LIVED when there wasn't a cellular phone or computer in sight! I am so thankful to have been able to live my 10 years of life to know exactly what life was like with out a computer or cell phone. I remember having real genuine feelings and emotions towards others and for those real and genuine feelings came in return to me. However now it all just feels scripted. The tone and the dialogue between a person and I is always the same. Time has gone passed and its been years of the same conversations online . Who wants to live like that? What memories can you remember online all day?

    There are so many reasons why computers are being used way too much , people DRIVE while on their computers / cell phones . They EAT at dinner with their family while on their cell phones. People WATCH TV and are on their cell phones or computer .

  • Yes we are

    Why not the people saying no should make sense that they have also used a computer to support their opinion and they are saying that computer is not a necessity do they know that 50% farming in US will stop without computers .. Ya thats a fact boys we need to realise

  • A tragedy waiting to happen

    I haven't a clue where or when but I think it is a fair bet that in the next 10 years or so there will be a major catastrophe where one of the main factors will be excessive software complexity.
    It might well involve banking, or maybe logistics. Most people these days live in huge cities where vast quantities of food have to be brought it. If that were seriously disrupted the army and police in most countries would not have sufficient numbers to prevent the serious breakdown in order which would ensue.

    On a smaller scale, most people these days are struggling to cope with the new operating systems, particularly Windows 7 and the nightmare that is Windows 8. People simply don't understand why their machines are going wrong. They don't understand about "account control" and security systems.

    At the other end of the spectrum we have desperately poor people in desperately poor countries who have little cash but a great deal of time to master the black arts of cyber crime. And of course you can commit cyber crime half way across the world. Nobody knows how much the banks and other institutions are losing to theft or paying out to cyber protection rackets.

  • 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.
