Computers are often argued to be the most important invention of the last hundred years. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this statement?
computers have changed people's life
This is my answer:
It is said that computers are the most essential man-made divices of the last centuries. This essay will show my attitude about this problem.
I admit that computer is an important invention because it has lots of meansures with humans. It helps people contacting with the world through the Internet. Besides, Word, Exel and other apps also help people complete their work more quickly with a better quality. When you do not know or understand something, you can "ask Google", it will give you millions of answers just in a few seconds.
Beside the benefits from the computer, this divice brings some negative effects, too. Firstly, using the computer too much makes people be addicted. There are lots of the interesting apps, especially the Internet on the computer, so users can do anything they want and have experiences with the unique and variety contents. Secondly, people who use computer to solve their problems might have passive thinking. They can just expect to the Internet, not themselves, it is very dangerous because they will lose their own creation. And finally, computer just helps users have unreal friends, it means that they would not have time for their real friends, there is no time to understand what they think, no time to share their emotion, gradually, they will lose those real friends.
In short, I agree that computer has a big affect to human life, especially in the modern life. However, human should have the rules to use this device reasonably, avoid using too much.
