Computers - indispensable part of our life
Computers have become a major part of our lives today. We use them for tests,
entertainment, organization, studying, etc. They are a vital essential in the world we live
in. Without them the world would fall apart. It is impossible to imagine how people
functioned in the old days when computers did not exist. Computers have become almost
as smart as us.
We use our computers daily. After a long day in school, we usually turn on our
computers and use them for learning and studies. Computers provide a big variety of
information which is available for us to search. And all the information is gathered in
Internet. Internet is everyone's door to the world and to the vast knowledge of everything.
Computers have significant advantages over people in a few select areas. They can store
huge amounts of information that they will never forget, they can organize and retrieve
that information very quickly, and they can do very complex calculations very quickly.
The newest generation of computer applications for learning uses these computer
advantages to help students do much more complex problems than they otherwise could.
Researchers have noticed that computers improve our critical thinking skills, student
collaboration, performing real-life tasks and performing complex tasks. And furthermore,
computers are becoming more and more important for our studies, since they are used
writing essays, researching and for learning more about our enviroment.
Besides using computers for our studies and educational purposes, computers are also
quite useful for our amusement. About 10 years ago, there was no other way to watch
new movies but in cinema. Nowadays we can watch them at home - on the web. We can
download or watch streaming movies and that for a small fee. Ofcourse there ar ways to
get them for free, but that is piracy, which is illegal. But our entertainment possibilities
does not end with movies. Not at all! Computers are used alot when listening to music or
playing games. There is now a huge industry for computer gamers, which is one of the
most profitable industry in the world. But even that is not it! You can draw pictures, edit
them and make even your own movies or videos, using computers. The possibilities
The more and more widespread use of computers in everyday-life has a deep influence
on our lives. Chat rooms allow us to connect with like minded people and discuss with
them about our favourite topics. Messengers also allow us to connect to your friends
across the world and talk to them. We use computers to talk and chat with people all over
the world. Often we lose our sence of time for this and don't even accept the fact that it is
not useful for us. It has been reported that programmers after a long time of working with
computers began to relate to others in the same way than they did to their computer. They
begin to loose relational skills especially the ability to synchronize with group behavior
or other human to human relatioships. The fact that programmers use computers more
than us, doesn't change the fact that it could affect us the same. Although it is good to talk
to people using computers, one should always prefer communicating people in real-life.
We use computers daily, but do we accept the fact that long-term using of computers is
affecting out health? Working for hours on end with a computer is now a fact of life.
Whether it's an aspect of your work or whether you use computers just for fun, there are
certain risks involved with prolonged computer use. With the increasing use of
computers, computer related vision problems are affecting a growing number of
individuals. Visual symptoms include: eyestrain, blurred or double vision, headaches, red
or irritated eyes, and color perception changes. But there are even more side-effects on
using computers. When sitting on the same position constantly, we may experience neck
or shoulder tension, general fatigue, or pain in the back, arms, wrists or shoulders. Using
computers daily and more than few hours a day is risky and may affect our health. That is
why we should always have pauses using computers and enjoy more outdoor activities.
Computers are vital part of our every day life, as they provide us with so many
possibilities on using them. We can search the World Wide Web for information, talk with
our friends and long-distance relatives, play games, watch movies or listen to music.
There are so many ways on entertaining ourselves using computers. But besides on many
wonderful things, which computers offer us, we should always be aware that computers
may affect us badly aswell, from health issues to communication problems. In my
oppinion computers are worth using, as long as we use them right.
