Great Aspects of Today's Technology

Out of all of today's technology, I enjoy using the Internet and cell phones most. It is an incumbent feature in my life, most likely because of the generation I was born into. This generation thrives on technology. The majority of us use the Internet daily: the older generations, not so much. One of the great things about the Internet is the ability to communicate with such a wide variety of people, through Facebook, email, and much more! Sometimes the Internet is not always great. It can be a distraction and it can be difficult to always have to do all my work online. For example, in some of my classes, it is required to peer edit papers online, which I tend to struggle with because I prefer writing on the actual paper. But on the upside, everyone has good handwriting on the computer. Most everyone has a cell phone now days and they are essential communication devices. My cell phone allows me to text, call, play games and do things like calculate and translate things for language to language.

  1. Carly, I think you made a lot of interesting points, such as how our generation affects our use of technology and how it can also be a distraction. I really liked the humor you added about handwriting! Good job!
