The Effects of Computer Technology on Our Everyday Lives

These days, the computer technology industry is rapidly growing and changing. Along with that growth and change in computer technology are the people who adapt almost immediately to the changes.

Computer technology has made our lives a lot easier and simpler. For example, our bank. Years ago, people had to manually submit the essential data of their customers; now they just use the computer to find this information. In just one click, they would immediately look for the name of the customer, date of birth, address, email address, phone numbers and so on. As for the clients of these banks, they can easily get a quick look at their balance sheets by logging on to the bank’s website; In addition to that a lot of people are able to apply for a loan using your computer.

Because of the birth of computer technology, we now have credit cards or what others call plastic money, which are particularly useful as we do not have any cash on hand or when ordering a product through the Internet. Today, the purchase of products such as mobile phones, bags, household items and clothes or even paying bills can be done easily in the comfort of your own home.

The use of the computer many students especially those with unfortunate disabilities or serious illnesses are able to participate in various schools through home schooling. Students are also able to take their screening tests or check their figures through the use of the computer.

To my knowledge, computer technology has many businesses in the community helped better. But computers are not only helped us in the business industry; it also has an effect on our communication systems. Long before computers were born, writing letters were the main source of communication, of which a hassle most especially to the people who lived would be in distant places; plus phones were quite expensive, so people would pretty much prefer writing to their loved ones. And for that reason, people who communicate far away from civilization would be a really hard time with others. Now we have email, and live chat or even voice mails. We already have video calls where we would be able to see the person we talk to see. This would be really great for people who have loved ones who are far from home. Getting in touch with each other is now a piece of cake.

Computer technology has changed our lives for the better. Without it, we would still live in pre-historic times.
