Positive impact of technology:
Technology also has a great impact on all the fundamental aspects of all our cultures including laws and how they are enforced, language, art, health care, mobility, education and religion. For instance the great technological improvements in health care have given a chance to doctors to treat their patients in an environment that is virtual through the use of mediums such as video conferencing which has also greatly benefited the legal environment as it allows the judges to still listen to the cases of hard core criminals who cannot be allowed to get into the court rooms due to security reasons.
Today most people put on their headphones in and listen to music rather than listening to another person. Videogames isolate all things from the world.
Technology has led to having access quickly to information that impacts the business; therefore businesses can quickly respond to changes and/or make changes
Operational cost can be reduced (allowing higher profit margins) by having employees work from different geographical places this is due technology and use of computers.
Technology has led to enhancement and speeding up the core work function of corporations
Technology has led to generating greater masses of information and data about business and other stories about what is happening in other parts of the world. The world is now a global village.
Technology impacts on our daily lives. Our environments are all so full of technology to the point that most of the time we take it for granted and never actually notice the level of impact that it has on us until when we have no telephone, transport, water or electricity. Advancements in technology have greatly increased our living standards. Despite the fact that we are currently experiencing very high inflation rates and the rates of unemployment are very high, generally, people are feeding better, are dressing better and are as a matter of fact living more comfortable lives.
How has technology decreased quality of life and in what ways
With every advancement that is made in the technological world, creative destruction results. For example, television impacts negatively on the movies and synthetic fibers impact the cotton fibers negatively. The coming in of new types of technology also results in a negative impact on the growth of the economy at times; television at times consumes all the productive hours that a man has in a day.
Today it’s all about touch screen cell phones. Technology just isolates people from reality. People now a days don’t know how to communicate in real world situations like personal relationships, problem solving and exhibiting adult behaviors.
Due to technology online communication has become impersonal therefore we have lost the rewarding experience of in-person human connections
Illusion of relationships – connecting electronically can lead to more isolation (in and outside of workplace)
Constant digital sensory stimulus will lessen our ability to discern and think for ourselves more effectively
Privacy and security issues has greatly increased due to technology.
