Technology… Extremely Beneficial, Yet Frustrating!
Posted November 22, 2011on:
Technology seems to be a major part of every person’s life in today’s world and although it is a phenomenal and very beneficial tool and resource, we cannot forget the frustrations that also come with technology!
Tonight my roommate was working on a project that she has been working on for quite a while, when her computer suddenly shut down and would not start up again. We are guessing it may be a virus, but needless to say, it has to be taken in to be repaired and to see if any of her project information, along with any other personal files, can be recovered. Talk about frustration! Technology is becoming such a huge part of our lives that something as simple as not being able to use your computer, becomes a major problem! In university, it seems to be an unwritten requirement that every student attending classes MUST have a laptop or computer in order to take the class since everything is basically now online. With online classes, contact with professors through email, and submitting assignments online, I can imagine it would be quite difficult to take a class without a personal computer; it may not be impossible to take a class without a personal computer, but it would definitely make it more difficult! I personally like where technology is heading and look forward to what we will be doing in regards to technology in the future, but I also know the frustrations that come with technology and I believe that it is important for me to remember that technology is not perfect and there are flaws in it, although I think the good sure outweighs the bad when it comes to technology!
