"Computer Dependency/ Nguyen Thi Ngoc Huong"

We are becoming increasingly dependent on computers. They are used in businesses, hospitals crime detection and even to ply planes. What things will they be used for the future? Is this dependence on computers a good thing or should we have more suspicion of them?

Thanks to technology development, human life is better than in the past. We are using plenty of machines to support our life like the computer. However, people are excessively relying on computers and this will bring some negative effects.

We can not deny some benefits that the computer brings to our life. There are two main reasons why the computer will continue to be used in the future. Firstly, the computer helps to save time. The computer is the tool that we cannot be without in our working environment and it is a good way to keep information. For instance, if you need information about a financial plan, you just need to type a few letters on the computer and the information you need appears in several seconds. The computer helps workers to resolve problems quickly. For example we can stay at the office and book a plane via mail instead of having to go to the partner companies. In addition, computers help online shopping become easier. We are living in the modern society and people are so busy. They do not have enough time go to local shops. Thus, we just stay at home with a computer connected to the internet,and we can possess whatever we want.

On the other hand, if we have excessive reliance on the computer, it will be a bad thing. Firstly, when computers have problems, we will meet troubles because we cannot exchange information. For example, we cannot submit an important report for our boss on deadline due to our computers having problems. Secondly the computer will significantly influence our health. When we spend a lot of time work on computers, it will harm for our eyes and back.

All in all, the computer brings to our life advantages. In my opinion, I think that people should know how to use computers properly because computers are created by humans and support humans.
