Introduction

Introduction to technology Technology is increasingly becoming part of our everyday life. We can think back to a time when we did not even know what a computer was and all we had was the telephone, radio, and television. Now, we cannot go a day without using my computer and the internet to do something that we need to get done. When did it all change? Everything is happening so fast. We remember going to school and all that we were allowed to use was paper and pencil and we are only twenty and twenty-two years old. When we think about how quickly things have changed, we can only image what it's going to be like for the next generation. Everyday there is something new coming out into the technology market whether it be, an upgrade to a software package or a new model for a computer. ...read more.

It is an admitted fact that those children who spend more time on computer are feeling lonely because they have no time to spend with their parents. This increases their daily stress because if they are not talking with their parents it means they are not sharing their problem, that's why they are facing trouble. Young children daily play computer games more or less 20 minutes but in these 20 minutes they sit in front of the computer screen which is harmful for children eyes. It is a natural process that a children eye blinks about 4,000 times in 20 minutes but when they are playing computer they blink their eyes only 20 times in 20 minutes.

Conclusion

The impact of technology on these elements can change how safe, healthy and happy people feel. Throughout history, people have looked for better ways to meet their needs and to satisfy their expectations. Technology has improved the way people feed, clothe and shelter themselves. Technology has also changed other aspects of everyday life, such as health care, education, job satisfaction, and leisure time activities. Conclusion Researchers are investigating behind nanotechnology and this could happen at any time. The world is creating an opportunity for people and things are getting smaller and smaller as they go along. All objects will change within ten years time. Many nanotechnology experts feel that these applications are well outside the realm of possibility, at least for the foreseeable future. They caution that the more exotic applications are only theoretical. Some worry that nanotechnology will end up like virtual reality -- in other words, the hype surrounding nanotechnology will continue to build until the limitations of the field become public knowledge, and then interest (and funding) will quickly dissipate. ...read more.
