T- Technology Becomes
E- Exploitable because of the
C- Cheap rates and
H- High availability.
According to Wikipedia, the top four countries having the maximum Internet users are China, India, United States and Japan. These four countries face the maximum cyber crimes each year compared to other countries, where the Internet is still considered only for business use.Manufacturing tech products with cheap prices leads to higher demand among the people. This is the main reason technology is being exploited more and is lessused for meaningful purposes. Thus, the name “TECH” age is well suited to describe this current phase.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not against technology. I just want to emphasize that we should use technology responsibly in the best way so we don’t harm ourselves from its negative effects.
Now Matter is What is “Technology”?
we can describe technology as products and processes used to simplify our daily lives. We use technology to extend our abilities, making people the most crucial part of any technological system.
But Actually the word technology comes from the Greek words“techne”, which means“craft”and“logy”which means“scientific study of”.So technology means the “scientific study of craft.” Here craft means invention. Technology is the application of scientific knowledge for practical purposes, especially in industries.
The biggest outbreak :
1. Awful addiction
Its the 21st century, and we are dependent on technology for almost everything.
However, most of the time addiction to technologies under-acknowledged. I guess we all are addicted to phones. The condition gets worse when we start feeling a vibration of our cell phones even if it is not vibrating.😅
It happens with me, and I am sure most people reading this have already witnessed this feeling once in their life.
Did you know that a man died after playing video game for 40 hours continuously? Are games more important than life?
2. Technology is the main reason for health degradation
“Sitting is the sweet Poison”,I am sure you would have come across this sentence at least once while reading health magazines. How can sitting degrade your health?
The more you sit, the lesser is the blood circulation in your body. Constantly starring at the screen of your devices can lead to neck and head pain.
It can result in headaches and poor eyesight. Not to mention, that the excessive use of the Internet is linked with depression and obesity – Yes Obesity.
Constantly starring at the bright screens can hamper the release of melatonin – a hormone responsible for sleep and wake cycles.
3. Internet brings out the worst
Many of us have started living a dual life because of the Internet. Some people are completely different from what they try to be on the Internet.
Normal human beings should act the same online as he or she does in real life.The internet curts the brain.
If you have Some Minor health problem and When you are trying to search on internet for your health issue then i think you should be stop because i know internet will make you anexious.
4. Crime Increases with cyberbullying
Some countries use technology to spy on other countries; this creates political tension between countries.
Furthermore, nuclear warfare can be the reason for mass destruction in the future.I guess we all are aware of cyber crimes also known as computer crimes.
Such crimes include online bullying and harassment, fraud, cyber terrorism and warfare, hacking, cracking, cyberstalking, phishing attacks, identity theft, etc.
5. Overall Health and Technology
Technology can have a large impact on users’ mental and physical health.Being overly connected can cause psychological issues such as distraction, narcissism, expectation of instant gratification, and even depression.
Beside affecting users’ mental health, use of technology can also have negative repercussions on physical health causing vision problems, hearing loss, and neck strain.
Take a look on the headline of a 2012 study by the Pew Research Center’s Internet and American Life Project is a good summary of the current debate on how the rapid growth of technology will effect our minds:
“Millennials will benefit and suffer due to their hyper connected lives.” Pew surveyed “technology experts and stakeholders,” who generally agreed that those who best capitalize on new technologies will be able to effectively find and sift through large amounts of information as quickly as possible.
Technology may make us impatient, subject to frequent distraction, and desperate for constant entertainment
