Introduction

Hannah Condon. English essay. Pro's and con's of the technological advance. The technological advance I'm going to write about is the Internet. You can find the Internet almost anywhere. On your computer, mobile, television, organiser and in siber cafes. You can talk to people all over the world by the Internet and the most common way is email. Emailing is good because you can type to people all over the world and they can type back to you whenever they want too. One interviewee said " Email is fabulous because you can keep in-touch with people all over the world. My family live in Australia and I work her. Email is a lot easier than ringing them on the phone and is cheaper." Yet emailing has its disadvantages. People can send you emails that when you open can crash your computer or give it a virus.

They exchanged information and decided to meet up. I went with my daughter to make sure she was OK. When I saw the man he defiantly wasn't 16, more like 30. I didn't let her go.

Conclusion

You can do exactly the same things through the televisions Internet as the computers. Play games, order shopping and many more. I personally prefer the Internet through the television, than the computer." A big disadvantage is that you can get addicted to the Internet. It can start to control your life. People can become unhealthy and never go outside, because they know that all their stuff will come to there door and they'll never have to worry about making the effort to do the shopping etc. A scientist said, " The Internet is an amazing technological advance but to many of us are becoming lazy and relying on the Internet to go everything for us, even do are food shopping. This is very bad and after a while we will all see a change in are health." Over the entire Internet is a space saving advance. If we had all the information from the Internet in books it would fill a lot of space. This is amazing technological advance and if you don't have access to it its defiantly worth getting. ...read more.
