Technology Essay In this essay I will state why I think technology makes my life more simpler . Some researchers have other opinions, as you will read in this essay. After reading the essay Fallen in Late by Kate Zernike, I saw that some researchers made some good points on how cell phones have enabled more people to fall behind schedule, and have provided a new crutch the chronically tardy. James E. Katz, a professor of communication at Rutgers University, says “the cell phone has changed the ature of time and relationships. Just by calling and changing the plans your are able to change being late to being on time. ” pg. 236. I can agree some what with that statement, if I was to look it from a psychological point. People myself included tend to think because we have a cell phone we can take advantage of calling someone and telling them we are running late and need more time when we don’t really need it. While a person that doesn’t use a cell phone mind frame will be different, because they know they don’t have cell phone to tell that person they are running late, so they mind set will be to always be on time. Technology has definately made my life simpler. For one, technology today makes it much more easier to communicate with family and friends from a distance, with internet sites like face book, myspace and others. Cell phones is another technological item used by a lot of people. One of the main reason why people have cell phones is so they can be contacted in case of a emergency.
It would be hard for me to live with out a cell phone. In this generation cell phones can practically do anything from take pictures, record video, listen to music, download applications and more. Cell phones have changed over the years, I know people that would rather text a message on a cell phone instead of calling on it. As a conclusion you can see technology makes my life more simpler and safer. With technology growing over the years I cant wait to see what is going to be made in t he future.
