Is Modern Technology Good or Bad?
Just as someone said "The life was more simple when Apple and Blackberry were just fruits". Is it true that the modern technology has a lot of good with just a shadow of bad or other way around. Does the fast advancement of technology make life lot easier or more complicated?

Without the medicines people would die from many of the illnesses we take for granted, medicine itself is only a stop gap until technology is invented that can directly intervene at the cellular level.
You do not need to be right to reap the rewards of technology, maybe some, but not all. And just remember, todays technology is tomorrows cheap
Also only if you are rich to you reap the true rewards from these.
Then you should throw your cell phone and computer away before your sight and hearing goes! QUICK! QUICK!
Next time you're out sight seeing, bring an easel, 3 gallons of paint, 5 paint brushes and 200 sheets of canvas so you can make sure to capture all the moments a camera lets you.
Oh wait, you aren't that good of a painter? You don't have time to paint every picture you want? You can't carry 200 sheets of canvas?
Oh! Then its a good thing technology brought us cameras to capture moments in the blink of an eye and carry thousands of them in our pockets! :D
Most people have it because it is like a smaller oven but what people don't know is that
microwave is one. Most people need it and have it.
Your car causes pollution too, doesn't mean it should be thrown away with
We communicate with people. Now days there are gps on our kids phone which can track them down.
Also people use as a daily need. So i know cell phone is one!
<3 all who like this
People get more brain damage from listening to people who claim cell phones create brain damage than they ever would from a cell phone. People are spending more and more time on them because they are a tool that aids and eases our society. We have music, movies, games, gps, communication and the internet at our fingertips wherever we are. That is beyond incredible
cell phones kill honeybees.....these days honey is used by hr8 patients & they would also someday die if this is continuously followed.
It could become out of control
Its bad enough when you have to listen to a computer going on and no human.Very impersonal.
So long as we ensure that we think through all decisions then the idea of a robot army running riot on humanity is nothing but a bad dream (Or a good film).
The debate that robots will take over the world wouldnt be technologies fault, but how the people used it. We have learned and are still learning that we need to look at all possible outcomes before we add new technology or create 'robot soldiers'.
Modern Technology may increase the temperature of the planet but also supports the existence of 6-7 billion humans for which without technology would simply no be sustainable.
Global Warming is a process that occurs naturally anyway, though we are expediting the current process we can pretty much guarantee that we know what will happen as a result (An ice age of the likes of previous ones). Technology helped us (humans) through the last one and will help us through the next one too.
The world goes through cycles of "ice age' and "global warming" and it always has (according to history). But in the end, the whole recent scam of global warming was just that, a scam. The scientists being paid by the US government to research global warming ended up finding out that global warming isn't actually occurring. Upon investigation the government found out these scientists were bringing up this scare to keep the money from the government lining their pockets. So currently global warming isn't happening, but it will be inevitable.
It could lead us to the end of the world earlier then it should naturally
Sure a bomb could end the world.. we technically have 'planet crackers' of a kind, we've had nuclear warheads thousands of times stronger than the Hiroshima bomb, 40 years ago the Tsar 'kind of bombs' was detonated and that was only half its potential because it might kill too much..
Technology is knowledge and is not by itself a bad thing, it is in fact our wisdom of using such knowledge that leads to catastrophes.. Sure without the knowledge that probably couldn't happen, but without continual progress we would not be able to support society as it grows. The power generated by nuclear weapons has also stopped world wars due to the fear of 'mutual annihilation' and currently provides a great percentage of the power requirements of the modern world which otherwise would be burning fossil fuels and trees to the point of exhausting those resources.
Child education and communication
Before Cyber bullying was bullying, before hand held games there were consoles and before that just regular tv. Before i pod was the CD player and before the boom box ect. ect. The point is, these forms of entertainment are nothing new and should not be used as an excuse. It's people like you that poison our world because you take the greatest inventions and turn them into a device thats bad for humanity when in reality, the helpfulness of the tool is far beyond its evils that would probably still occur without said device.
No to modern technology
might not be now, but we could find a way to heal radiation or even use radiation to our benefit in some way, whether it cures us or makes us more able to do something.
Increase in destruction from equipment in wars or fights
We have the bombs that can clear multiple cities with one bomb. We have rocket launchers capable of blowing up buildings from the inside out. We have grenade launchers holding several grenades. We could take down multiple cities within a few seconds and use about 6 bombs to destroy a small country right now.
Thats the scary truth. However, technology may be able to bring upon some kind of defense to bombs and explosions to protect cities. How? Personally i'm not sure, but thats what technology is for, to create things that we don't know and thats what make it so amazing
Is Technology Bad for you?
What do you think?
