“Whether Computers Made Life Easier or More Complex”
I agree with people that say computers have made life easier and convenient, but to be honest, I don’t completely disagree with people that say computers have made life more complex and stressful. Not to be ambiguous, but that’s how I see it.
To start of, the purpose that us humans created computers was for helping us with our tasks, to make life a little bit easier. And who knew? It works. For example, like one of the smallest things, calculator, no matter who you are, what you do, when you want to count something, calculator makes it a whole lot easier. Even if you’re some math genius prodigy who finished your doctorate degree in your teens, counting with a calculator would still save you a few seconds, or maybe a millisecond, or even a nanosecond, but hey, that still counts as making it easier right?
From that small pocket calculator to the humongous working machines in modern manufacturing industries. The industries wouldn’t work so well and on time these days without those computers operating the whole factory. Buildings, airplanes, trains, and lots of things are operated by computers that certainly makes our life easier.
Now, about the computers that made life more complex and stressful, that’s right too. It’s just how people manage their time in using the computers. If you use it 24/7 or close to that, it will make you stressful. You need to balance it out, your life and your time on the computer. Some have said that the best way to relax from computing, is just taking a day off without computers. That’s a really good suggestion. Moreover there are people that just don’t want to learn how to use computers, because for them, the simple life is a better way to live. I don’t disagree with that, maybe it is, but the world we live in now is a world with computers to help us with our tasks, and we just have to adapt.
So it all depends on us, on how the way we use computers, how we manage our time with it, it can make things easier, or it can just stress us out.
