Have people become overly dependent on technology?

  • Way too dependent on technology

    Most kids these days don't even know how to use a dictionary because " Google has it all" so they don't see it as a necessary skill. Look around at how many people are engrossed in their phones walking down the street, or while driving. Most accidents are caused by people using their phones while driving, whether it be for GPS, to get on Facebook or anything else. It's insane for some people to fathom how anyone ever lived without texting, GPS, and Google. Technology is a big help and a big problem. So how do we know when too much is too much when it comes to using all the technology we have today?

  • WE are relying too much on everyday technology, what if it all disappeared?

    Basically you use technology from the minute you get up (your alarm clock) to the minute you go to sleep (music). What if it all one day disappeared? What would you be left with? Would you even be able to communicate with your friends or enjoy life at least? I think we should all focus more on reality than just the screen in front of our face!

  • I am Stingy

    This mailbox is mine
    And this triagonal sign
    That blue balloon
    The month of June
    They're mine, mine, mine, mine, mine

    Ziggy's sweets are mine
    That birdie's tweets are mine
    The city streets
    Both your feet

    They're all emphatically mine

    It all belongs to me
    Everything that I see
    North, south, east and west
    I caress it, 'cause I possess it
    I'm Stingy and it's mine

    And this instrumental break is also mine

    The floor and ceiling are mine
    All your feelings are mine
    You always knew it
    That's all there is to it
    It's mine, mine, mine, mine, mine

    That's what I said
    It's mine

  • Technology provides an easy life but...

    It's true that technology was created to benefit us and make our life easier but there's a difference between helping us and taking over our lives. Technology has been incorporated in every single aspect of our life and nowadays we don't realise until it's gone. The against statement's saying "No, we need it" actually shows that we are in fact too dependent on technology. The fact that we *need* it is concerning since our race used to survive without it. And I completely agree that technology has benefitted us extremely greatly, but one day it can be the end of us. It's already ended some lives for example numerous car accidents, suicidal teens due to cyber bullying. It's worsening people's health as well, obese people have increased due to lack of exercise and excessive gaming. We need to start communicating face to face whenever we can and have a play outdoors. It's ironic how the majority of us are saying we are too dependent on technology but are in fact typing our for arguments on a computer.

  • I think its bad

    In my schools while were learning my teacher gets phone calls and answers them in the middle of the class and allows us to text people in the middle of our learning session and it has become and adicte to all the kids in my school today yeterday tomorrow and everyday help

  • Yes we have.

    As a people we have become overly dependent on technology. We can't function if our phones crash, if our wifi is down then it is the end of the world for us. We wouldn't be able to survive without them which is concerning. This also brings up the issue of obesity that it causes. Technology has ruined us, we need to separate from it a little more.

  • People have drastically become dependent on technology.

    Men, women, and children especially have become overly dependent. It has evolved from using technology as a tool to a strict entertainment purpose. While it is still used as a tool, more people use it as a entertainment use. Whether it be video games, movies, shows, transportation, etc... People use it too much for the wrong purpose. There are in fact people who cannot go a day without the use of technology. One day, when the technological wonders we have created crash, the world will be in a panic not knowing what to do. This will occur because people have no basic survival skills which will be there demise. Technology is good at sometimes, I use it for entertainment purposes as well. However, this technology will not last forever. We must be prepared for what comes after the age of technology.

  • Good and bad

    I think that it is good because a lot of people in the USA use technology to find out where old friends are or texting their loved ones people. All around the world people are using technologies even your car has technology. The bad thing is that some people can cause car accidents if texting and driving.

  • Yes We Have.

    I say technology is overused for it takes up time and your day. Or maybe your week. For now people go on social media more than they sleep. And well I know the downside because I use it to much so i want to keep you all from it. So I say yes.

  • We are not to dependent on technolgy

    We are not to dependent on technology because people use their technology and gadgets for lots of useful things such as keeping up with news, emailing people for connecting and working, and having a complete office with you every day. Also we technology can be anything. Cars and Planes are technology. Are we to dependent on cars and planes?

  • Technology is not the problem man.

    Technology is not the problem. It is the way that we use it. If we just used it as a tool instead of as a way to escape reality then all is fine. It is the people who sit on their asses playing video games all day that make it seem that way.

  • Technology is the future

    If it weren't for technology, I would not be able to post this right now, if it weren't for technology, you wouldn't be able to communicate with friends or family across the globe in seconds, if it weren't for technology, the masses of research going into cancer could not be carried out.
    From the wheel to the Iphone 5s, technology has given us some of the greatest inventions of all time, it always has and always will...Technology is the future.

  • No we need it

    No, because we the people need technology because without it we all would be dummies and if you look at this page almost all of the paragraph's In the yes column are mostly made by one man or women and yes I agree with the yes people but we really need internet and technology because the dictionaries are to slow nada wast of time.

  • Communicating with Phones in 1 Household!?!

    Many people admit they cannot survive one day without gadgets such as phones, laptops and computers, tablets, and more. We are very dependent on technology. We even rely on those gadgets just to entertain us on occasions. Besides all that, technology is ruining the future generations and will spoil the generations after that.

  • Just cause we rely often on technolgy doesnt mean we are dependent

    I have heard people say that life is way harder without technology. We know this, but technology was created to make life easier, that is the main purpose. Just cause we might rely on something doesnt mean we can't live without it. Sure it will be harder since we are used to it, but not impossible.

  • Maybe one of out of every ten persons is overly dependent

    Technology makes life faster, easier and smarter. If people consuming all sorts of technology are physically fit and have enough skills, then there's no problem at all. Problem is only with those people who become dumb, frustrated, depressed and lose confidence in deprivation of technology; and these kind of people are only 10%.

  • Not they are

    The human civilization underwent many changes and developments with the passage of time. Early man lived in caves and forests. They lived on the food available in the forests. Science has blessed mankind with all the basic comforts of life.
    What would happen if your computer crashed? What about if you lost your cellphone? If just thinking about these scenarios gives you anxiety, you’re not alone. Most of us rely so much on technology these days that losing it, even for a day, would be extremely inconvenient, and for some, life-altering. So what if you took that technology out of your life for a day voluntarily?
    What does if facebook or twitter will not work?
    Yes thse are our needs and habit , if you have a habit of getting up early in the morning ,if someones force you to sleep more what you will do oh ya feeling awkward .So thats only cause for it .....................
    Technology is good and bad Yes, technology is slowly taking over our social lives and slowly creeping into our relationships and everyday activities. But technology isn't really the problem. It is the people that use it and how they use it that effects the overall negative and positives of technological advances. We as a race today decide on how we use technology and how much that we let it take over our lives. Without technology there would be more bad than good. Yes, it is stopping many kids from physical activities because they are inside watching TV or playing video games which is leading to an increase in obesity and laziness. But without technology how would we be able to communicate easily, prevent diseases make jobs more doable, and to transport items more easily. Just think!!! Prices would be higher because it would require more people and labor to create the things that we need in life that could have been easily done with technology. We as a whole should create a line where technology ends and face to face social communication beginsYes, but the line is hard to draw I know for a fact that when I need to know something my brain instantly jumps to Google. I never have to figure out anything myself if I choose not to. Communication keeps me in contact with everyone. Without it I think society would have some serious issues to deal with. I also believe though that with proper mental training one can rely on technology and still retain good mental health. It's all about how aware you are of your actions.
