It is evident how life has changed since technology has been introduced in the human life. When we think about technology mostly the first thing that comes to our mind is the image of a computer. Technological advancements such as computers have been designed and created with the only purpose to help humans and make their lives easier. Computers have become indispensable in any workplace where they are basically considered a compliment for people to help them on developing their activities. In fact, computers are the greatest invention of all time because they have multi-tasking features that can minimize your work, they can display and let you manipulate stored information, and they are used in almost all fields for any purpose.
First of all computers have multi-tasking features that can minimize the work you have to do. The cheapest or even oldest computer has at least the basic tasks such as mathematic operations and word processing that help you when you need to reduce your time on doing something. For example, computers avoid you having to calculate any result on doing math, the only thing you must do is to type the information needed and your work is done. According to Sam Ewing, “Computers are like bikinis. They save people a lot of guesswork.” But it is not just the work you do or the time it takes; it also saves you money in some way.
Secondly, computers can display and let you manipulate stored information. In other words, you don’t need to use paper in order to store any information on shelves. You don’t even have to rewrite a whole paper because you did a mistake or you have to add more information to the written form. You can have as many files as you can in your computer and organize them the way you like it without having to use any extra material or space. As Bill Gates said, “Paper is no longer a big part of my day. I get 90% of my news online, and when I go to a meeting and want to jot things down, I bring my Tablet PC.” Computers are becoming easier to carry and they can be used anywhere you need them.
Finally, computers are used in almost all fields for any purpose such as entertainment, education, and any type of job. For example, you can use computers to play videogames, watch movies, listen to music or chat on the internet for entertainment. In education or any job you can use them for videoconferences, PowerPoint presentations or just using their basic features discussed in the first point. “Computing is not about computers any more. It is about living,” Nicholas Negroponte said. So, computers have become a powerful tool used in several activity people do in their school, house or workplace.
Therefore computers are the greatest invention of all time because they reduce your time consumption on your activities, you can save your information and edit it anytime, and they let you do almost everything you need. Computers have become the most powerful tool ever created. They are tools of entertainment, tools of communication, and tools of education that can save you money, time and materials. You can have all your information organized in one place and dispose of it at the moment you need. No wonder why people fear technology if it is about to replace some of them in their workplace.
