Some people think the technology makes life complex, so we should make life simpler without using the technology. Agree or disagree?雅思作文范文【1】
Over the past century, science and technology has been developing unprecedentedly and changing every aspect of people’s lives. In my point of view, technology brings about higher efficiency and greater convenience,even though it causes confusion and disorder under some circumstances.
The benefits of modern technologies are multiple. Automation is widely used on the assembly line, setting free millions of people from the arduous and repetitive work.Thanks to the widespread use of the Internet, people have easier access to information than ever before. Instead of going to the library to consult reference books,they can acquire any information they want via the Internet. Moreover,emails and mobile phones enable people to stay in touch more conveniently and efficiently, compared with the old days when they had to go to the post office or visit others in person.
Despite the above-mentioned benefits,we cannot deny the fact that technology may lead to complexity and inconvenience in some cases. For instance,some old people find it difficult to use public facilities equipped with electronic-devices. However, this issue can be addressed with clear instructions provided. Another example is cyber fraud,which is difficult to prevent as the false information can spread very fast on the web.Those who get deceived may complain that the virtual space generates more crimes.
Overall,there is no denying that some problems and troubles may occur When various new technologies are applied to people’s lives. However, returning to a simple life without technology is not a solution and I believe a better future of mankind lies with the further progress of science and technology.雅思作文范文【2】
Technology is not always an angel, rather, in some cases, it may turn out to be a devil making our life rather miserable and complicated. Indeed, besides having to take trouble to learn to use the technology, who has not at least once cursed the technology when he flips open his computer for some important data only to find that the computer breaks down or when he is eager to fly to a city for a life-and-death business negotiation only to be told that his flight is canceled?
Yet, it does not follow that we can make our life simpler by getting rid of technology.On the contrary, technology can make our life a great deal easier and more comfortable. In the old days when email was not available, we probably had to travel a couple of miles to the post office in order to send a “hello” letter to our friends, but now it is just a matter of a few simple clicks on the computer / cellphone keyboard. Today, we have to climb several hundred feet to the top of a building to do the construction work, yet when robots are developed in future, this job can be performed by them safely and quickly.
So whether technology is a nuisance or a help depends upon your attitude towards life. If you enjoy a simple life of a hermit like Thoreau, you’d better stay away from any technology, for it will complicate or even ruin your lifestyle, but if your ambition is to become a successful businessman or politician, you must keep abreast of the latest development of technology, for it will surely help you realize your dream.
