both. since electronics started we are making use of the technology to make lives simpler,but the trouble is we are cramming so much into our days with constant technology ,being more andmore necessary we dont have time to stop ,look around and breath. we ourselves are becoming machines.

A very positive effect. Everything is more fluid, efficient, attainable, accessible, achievable and responsive. We can communicate freely and diversely. We have the world at our fingertips. This is the Age of Innovation, Technology and Communication. The world has become global, universal and transparent. Thanks a Million for the World Wide Web and the ease and freedom to access it.

Technology has had a positive effect, it has enabled many new prospects for people and buisinesses, homes and schools. But I also think that is detrimental in the way it effects our children, they live on their technology devices instead of being active, out doors and they tend to not think for themselves. In one respect its great but in other respects its clearly not a good influence.

Technology is a combination of good and bad,good as it gives us bright shiny new toys to play with and amuse the masses,bad in that it has had the unintended effect of stifling base creativity among small children,who are more likely to be found slack jawed in front of a TV screen or some type of computer monitor,than outside creating a reality out of sticks ,stones,corrugated iron and their imagination.
It is this imagination in childhood I believe which will fire the technology and machines not to mention the society of tomorro

I think as technology grows its going to make life simple but at a cost. We will think less frequently to have to solve complex problems without the use of technology that would help us. I find that as the years go by students are finding it hard to just do basic mathematics due to the use of mobile phones as their calculators. on the world entirely i find more and more people with messy handwriting and the inability to spell words that would seem easy for us. The Spellchecker program and the use of not being able to write with pen and paper anymore is killing the way we do things back in the day. Schools now want students to have a working tablet so they can do their work on them and just the inability to write free flowing sentences with your hands has become a thing of the past for some. Quite sad, i know technology will make our lives easier but it comes at a great loss to our future.

Technology has a positive contribution to our world but it must be harnessed, and controlled to obtained its maximum benefits so that it becomes an essential part of our life and well-being

As with everything, both positives and negatives. Video killed the radio star! Each generation has its challenges with different technologies. But technilogy has enabled great advances in many fields. One issue I see is social media causing some to be less socially interactive in person. When I see families all on their phones at dinner, not talking it's a shame. But, technology also allows us to stay in closer contact with loved ones that are far away. I would like to think that the positives outweigh the negatives.

There are positive & negatives affects of technology. In one case information is rewarding but can also be damaging. Technology can cure illnesses but in other cases it can make you ill.

I think technology is a time saver. Set and forget means we can multi-task. Less effort and exertion is also a bonus. Besides the obvious breakthroughs in science and medicine, technology has given us access to more entertainment and provided comfort to those in isolation.
