Humans are now dependent on computers.

Humans are now dependent on computers.
As technology advances very rapidly, we don't have enough choice than to embrace it and make it part of our daily lives since it also makes some of our daily jobs easier and faster, and that is a good thing. But somehow, most people are being too dependent on these technologies such as the computer, that they tend to forget that there are other beautiful things in life which can be achieved without it.

Now I am not saying that it is bad and all, it still depends on you. I know most of us are always staring at our laptops or desktops all day sometimes doing nothing (on saturdays this is me), just scrolling to things that they find interesting or sometimes looking for an online job and that is a good thing perhaps. But to some people, it ain't. I know that we are not going back in time and that we are advancing through technology, we can't deny that. Soon the world will have less trees, less natural things and more advance tech and probably robotics.

So with all of those things being said and done, do you think people should rely to computers all the way or do you think that there's more to life than just being online on the internet most of the day?

P.S I would encourage everyone to have a healthy discussion. If you have something bad to say, don't say it. (:

We can't.

The computer systems that we built around ourselves has changed the way the world thinks and the way it works. No longer do we have to wait in line to sign up for something as pretty much everything can be done over the phone with the assistance of someone behind the computer on the other line. So technology is practically there to save us a whole bunch of time and effort on many things. However, nothing is ever perfect, and computers can be flawed and vulnerable to a lot of errors. But still, the problems that come along with computers, pales in comparison to the convenience that it brings.

Sadly yes

Yes I agree with you on this, but I would correct you in saying that we seem to be dependant on the internet rather than computers. Nowadays tablets and smartphones are doing most of the jobs that a computer does, and people seem to be online or want to check what is happening online, pretty much every few hours or so, and in some cases even minutes. Even I, I tend to check out emails and social media several times a day. Most of us would not be able to remember a life without internet, gadgets and PCs. It is sad because we are relying too much on them in my opinion.

Yes - you have a point there. But I am only generalizing the facts and would-be effects in using the computer. Most jobs though can be done offline so there's that.

In the western world computers are taken for grant

Even my mother who hates computers had to learn how to operate the till and credit card machine when she went to volunteer at the local goodwill store, and so yes, computers do dominate.

However, if you go to small islands or remote places like Mongolia or Chinese villages you will find computers aren't used mainly because they have limited electricity. While energy supplies are around so will computers but once there is a shortage then people need to know other methods of recording or carrying out transactions.

All hail computers

In this modern world, people have become very dependent on computers. Not only the young ones but even the oldies. If you go to a bank you'll see that they're using computers. If something goes wrong with the system, everything will be affected - records, transactions...

When communicating with somebody far away, we use social media wherein we need to use computers. We use the internet, we use smartphones and tablets. When traveling to a new place, we use a GPS which uses computers.

In a manufacturing plant, products could not be made without the help of computers. We've come to a new era wherein we have become dependent to computers. But that does not have to be a bad thing right? Computers do not own us. We own them.

I agree, however

Humans have become more dependent on computers (and electronic devices in general) nowadays more than ever. However, these reasons of dependency vary between individual. For some, computers are merely entertainment. From video games, gossip websites, etc. I don't personally find these things to have any true relevance in real life. Simply put, I could take it or leave it from that perspective of computers.

You do, however, have people (like myself) that rely on computer and technological devices, in general, to succeed in higher education. While simultaneously attempting to somewhat achieve a part-times source of monthly income online. Not to talk in third person, but I feel people like this are trying to make the best of what technology has to offer. Especially in connecting individuals to companies and individuals to other individuals for freelance part-time or full-time work. Because of this, computers play a valuable part in a lot of our everyday lives.

Moral of the story is, we all have different reasons to be dependent on computers. Though not all are valid as they could be, in my opinion.

Everything is computerized these days and we really can't avoid using them. You can't even go shopping when the computers go down because they can not ring up your purchases.

Yes for sure

I don't know about all countries, but where I live it would be impossible for university students to go to school without a computer and it would be impossible for most people to do their jobs without a computer. Places like schools, hospitals and banks would not be able to operate anymore. Computers are probably the most powerful tools right now that let people know what is going on in the world around them and without a computer, it can be hard to feel connected to others.

We had to

We don't have a better choice, do we? We had to rely on technology which is advancing day by day. If we cut off ties with technology, we won't be able to perform any tasks easily or spontaneously.

Emails, smartphone, chatround, video conferencing, credit cards and many more, all these are required by people to get connected immediately and conveniently. Everyone has to learn to embrace with technology in order to be in line with the society and the market.

We had to, that is the only way to survive.

Yes, and that's okay.

Yeah if you were to ask me, I'd say that society has become totally dependent on computers and smart phones. Now is that necessarily a bad thing? The word "dependent" usually comes with negative connotations, as people have come to assume that depending on something is a bad thing. But I say there is nothing wrong with depending on technology. I saw a comic strip once that showed two cavemen criticizing a third caveman for being lazy and dependant on technology. What was the third caveman doing? Towing things in his cart using the wheel he just invented, instead of lugging the stuff by hand.

It's okay to depend on things that enrich and improve your lifestyle.

Computers are good...

I don't see any problems about us being dependent on computer. It is a technology that is readily available, why not maximize it. This innivation is helping us end our daily task faster and more efficient. It is also economic and space saver because your saving tons of office equipment.

Others really are over dependent with computers especially the youth, but the pros outweighs the cons in this discussion.

Automation

Almost every activity that you see these days is being taken with automation. And this has made it quite harder for many of us to be active. You can see that automation is going to replace many jobs. And we are more dependent on the machines. So you can see that is bad for our generation and in future too.

Is not a secret for anybody that we all are dependent now on computers. We now do pretty much everything from our laptops like work, socialize, entertainment, we have the word at one click away and we don't need to go out to do almost pretty much anything. I depend on it a lot, it's my source of income and it helps me to stay connected with my relatives and friends. As I don't have much time to go out, I watch movies or series online. Having a computer can help a lot and make things more practical, but somehow it's a bit sad to depend so much of one thing to make our lives work.

There's always more to life than computers!!!

Strange as it may seem, most people use their computers as a means of escape, either looking for opportunities or checking out holiday destinations or staying in touch with friends or video games. We use computers to do things that do not necessarily involve computers but conveniently we can access them in multiplicity through the use of computers! It sounds confusing but to put it simply, would you stare at your computer if it's powered off or for most people if there was no internet. If there was no network of escape where one could browse for shopping items or exotic locations or share with friends then the computer would be as useless as wet matches. Apparently for most people this is their way of reaching out to the world without overextending themselves and at the same time get to be in places or do things that they cannot actually do with the same feasibility as can be done by logging on. In the back of our minds, we don't depend on computers as much as we think we do. We depend on a constant medium of escape and outreach where we can explore our world and make ourselves better or comfortable in ways that may seem difficult or impossible otherwise. It is in our good interest to find different means or different ways to attain the level of fulfillment and productivity that we presume that we can get from clinging ourselves to our computers. We will discover many ways and achieve this once we apply ourselves to unearth other means of fulfilling our goals if we disregard the computer sometimes and just enjoy life and nature in all it's beauty and wonderful possibilities.

Future or Bust

Computers of all varieties have become an entrenched part of society, and that's as it should be. For any nay sayers, I'd remind them that great philosophers of their times thought books would make human minds dull since they would not have to memorize oral histories anymore. Humans evolved to be tool users, thus there's no tool we can use which is unnatural to us. When a car replaces a horse, when a book replaces a memorized story, when a calculator does our math for us, and when a computer takes over tasks we used to do, that's just human being humans.

Sincerely, as much as you find your self glued to the computer even knowing it affects your health negatively, you just cant help staying out of it. Me for one am guilty as charged. But still we cant deny that computer has played a huge role to where we are today, saving lives, connecting people, navigating people, and so many role computer play in our lives.

Of Course We Are

Obviously, in order to even answer this forum's question, I have to be on a computer. The power coming out of the wall and into my computer is controlled and monitored by computers on a "grid"--and so, I would say that we are definitely dependent, in our every day lives, through cell phones and computers in our vehicles, on these machines. There's no way around it--computer technology infiltrates and permeates every aspect of every thing that we do.

Strongly Agree!!

Absolutely humans nowadays are truly dependent on computers or to whatever technology today has. Even in searching a single word meaning people tend to go to Google and search for it. Let's not make these technologies control us. Children nowadays don't experience challenge in studying because the internet was there to help them in every assignment or homework they have. It's not really helping those kids but making them dependent and lazy.

I'd say we're further up evolution ladder with computers. Scientists say our brains our only 2% more powerful than that of a chimp's, but I doubt that honestly. Chimps are far less evolved than us, especially when you look at a thing like computers.

Still, I do believe humans could survive if the technology as a whole just ceased to exist. We'd probably create it again though, and that's a sign of our advancement as species.

As human we have limitations. Like remembering things or sets of procedures to make a job or activity. With the help of computers or machine all of this activity are done accurately and repeatedly. The storage so that all of this information are also well kept today especially with the emergence of Cloud Storage. But still this computers will not run on itself alone.

Unfortunately.

Although I strongly agree with this, I think it depends a lot on how each person sees all these technological advances and also depends on the type of profession they have.

All this technology available was created to facilitate our life and not to make us dependent on it... After all, we were the ones who created it and we are the ones who feed it. The opposite can never happen.

We are in the era today where computer dominates. Everything in this world is computerized, from our documents, for payments, buying and especially in work. Who in the world wouldn't know what a computer is? Because of the existent of computers, everything comes very handy and much simpler. You don't need to visit the store to shop, you can just shop online and gives you more time to choose at your convenience. It is a fact that every one of us comes very dependence in technology, especially to computers because it's much easier than doing things manually.

I think we don't have much of a choice not only because it's the way to progress but also it's just way too convenient and way too much fun. If we kept clinging to old technology just because we are scared of getting too dependent on the new one then we would all just end up like the Amish. Not that the Amish way of living is worse, but it definitely seems a lot less convenient to me and not at all appealing from the standpoint of someone who has been allowed to enjoy technology.

I can consider myself a dependent on a computer now since there are tons of things that I can do on my computer. I do my online job using my laptop. I also do some of the social activities through social media sites. I also stream videos online and download some stuff. If I need an information or research, I just simply use my computer to gather that information. Most of the time, I spend it in front of my computer and I'm so dependent on it.

A sad reality

Sadly, humans are now dependent on computers. With the continuing advancing technology, we are now making computers as part of our own development. We came to think that we will not be able to accomplish anything without the aid of computers. But we should think that computers are only equipments that we can use to help us to something easier. We should still make use of our own knowledge and skills, we can't just rely on them. They may be a great big help to our generation, but nothing could still beat your effort for your own success.

I think that there should be a balance between the time you spend on your devices and the time you spend outside. I believe everybody needs to get outside and enjoy nature. It does good to unplug for a while and just enjoy the simple things in life. I also think that people should take the time to spend time with their family and friends. Put the phones down and really listen to what people are saying. Life goes by quickly and nobody is guaranteed tomorrow. Nobody eants to libe eith regrets. Technology is a good thing but we need to find a balance in our lives so that our entire lives aren't spent in front of a screen.

This is a really good point. Balance in life is always appropriate! I think it's fine to bring your devices, especially if you can use them as a means to enhance your experiences. I've taken my phone on many hiking trips to take photos and look up plant life which I encountered but was unfamiliar with. Access to real time weather radars is almost a survival tool depending on how deep into the wilds you are, too. Few things are quite as terrifying as getting stuck on a mountain during a violent thunderstorm. But when it comes to socializing, it really bothers me when I made the effort to spend time with someone and their phone comes first. Mine goes off and they have my full attention. Checking a message quick is just fine, but when your nose is buried int he screen I just feel like I wasted my time being around you.

I agree with your observation that we are spending more and more time on computers, tablets, and other electronics. But as you have mentioned, it's just part of how we progress as a society. We are deep in the technological era. Using the computer is almost a necessity nowadays. Even when you're applying for certain jobs, they list the requirement of being able to use the PC and so on. Therefore, we are definitely reliant. Schools are now also basing so many courses around ''online programs'' that require the use of computers so it's hard to function if you don't use one at all.

I think that it's truly up to each individual to draw a line though. Staring at the computer screen all day long doesn't do you any good and you should always try to take frequent breaks. You shouldn't allow the computer to take over your life.

Life without computer will come to a complete standstill. And this will not be the case with anyone in particular. It will affect approximately 80% of the people worldwide. From knowledge, education, communication and entertainment a computer provides a complete package. This advancement of technology has become one of the basic amenities of life for many. Without it survival is tough. And I think all of this holds true for me as well.

I agree with what you said about life being on a standstill without the computer because the computer is not only for computation and business applications or playing games but also for communications.

If you don’t know what chatting is then you are left behind by technology.

Most people nowadays are depending on social media for communication. In every aspect of everyday life, technology is always involved. I am not saying that it is not bad that technology exists instead it is the thought that if the worst comes at us and all technology in the world would be rendered useless, majority of technology users would find it hard to adjust to a life without it.

I know I have been using a computer so much more now than I used to because I work online now but I still get away from it so I do not go completely insane. As with anything, we have to find a healthy balance between technology and the rest of the world around us. For some people, technology has become their lives.

LOL. I do agree that some people are far too dependent on technology. For example, if I'm in the car and one of my kids is doing the driving I get very peturbed when they start talking on the phone while I'm in the car! I get even more outraged when they start texting. Since I can't stop them, I very rarely get in the car with my kids these days. I don't think I should have to die in a car accident just because my kids' friend just had to know what they were doing right at that very minute! I mean really! It's not like the phone calls are emergencies. It's mindless chit chat that can wait!!

For the record. I don't think anybody relies on computers all the way. People are still having kids. Some things you can't use a computer to do. Life must carry on. :) :)

It's true that some people, especially those of the younger generation, have become extremely depended on the computer. A stipulation that came with the mass introduction of the computer that in an event where the computer would be unable to function that there would be a manual intervention where possible but that stipulation has been literally thrown out the window. In most instances, the manual consideration hardly seems to exist anymore. Take for example the typewriter, the computer systems have been gradually phasing out this device, therefore, if the computer is down there is no other means of producing a letter, it could be hand written but nowadays most entities won't accept hand-written communication.

There's much more to life than being online all day, unfortunately circumstances have me on my computer way too much than I care for. I take online courses, and I make extra money online. I use my computer for television, news, talking to friends and family. If something were to happen to my computer, I would be in a world of hurt. This is only temporary though. What we should be doing is living like we did before we became so dependent on them. Spending time outdoors, and quality time with our families and friends without any electronics. I live alone and right now I don't even have a pet, so I'm not hurting anyone but myself. It's not good to sit in front of a computer all day.

Maybe we can safely say that humans are partly dependent on technology but not exactly on computers. I know of so many people who cannot live without their phones. Companies cannot function without the computer that run their operations. And how can we conveniently communicate without the internet? And with the emergence of the e-commerce where transactions are being conducted online, we are getting to be dependent on computers. Perhaps only those in the boondocks are free from the bondage of computers and technology.

Yes, computers have become important in one's life now. Though not totally dependent on it. We use it to research and look for things we would like an answer of. But we still go back to the basics once they are done and that is talking to a real person, sharing our thoughts and laughing with him and our family. Nothing is more important than having to talk to someone about how you feel at that moment. Computers cannot do that.

Yes even I am dependent on computers. In fact due to the nature of my job I have to use the computer on a daily basis. Then when I return home from work here am I with my computer again and this time it is to earn a bit or have some fun online. In fact the most important thing for me is the internet. If there is no internet then I will not really have that much to do on my laptop. The last few months I have been spending so much time online but nowadays I am trying to spend more time with my family. I usually go for a walk when I return back home from work with my mom, we have dinner and may watch a movie together. I feel happier this way but well I am still using the laptop on a daily basis.

It is all about finding a balance that works for you. As long as you are making time to do other things away from your computer then it works for you. It is the people who never ventures away from their devices and have no social skills whatsoever that I worry about. Their entire lives are focused around their devices. They never make time for anybody else or anything other things. I do know a few people like that.

Whether we actually use computers daily for work or not, or we use them occasionally to communicate on forums like this, we are all dependent on them, because they are behind the scenes in just about everything that we rely on and use every day.

What concerns me is the way that computers and other electronic devices seem to rule so many people’s lives now. This is not one word of a lie; I saw a family eating lunch at a pub the other day and every single one of them, the adults and the kids, had a smartphone propped up in front of them while they ate their food. They weren’t talking to each other at all and they could barely tear their eyes from their screens to find the food on their plates.

If that’s the way we are going then, yes, people are becoming way too addicted to their computers.

Personal computers have liberated the world. Had there been no personal computer, the world would never have been like it is today. If there were no computers, I would have never been an online writer and internet marketor.

I agree with you but I prefer the term; "Transformed" the world rather than liberated. Back then we had technology and means of production, we just didn't have the means to store and process information like PCs allow us to

Transform is appropriate word to describe how computer has helped human civilization. However, I use deliberately deliberately. Liberation means becoming free from something. Computer has made us free from various things, not just how we learn and access information, but also work and perform business.

Humans are dependent on computers for a lot of things because they make life easier and more convenient and they have become indispensable both at work and at home. I wouldn't say completely dependent though, because there are more situations that require human intelligence and participation. For instance, computers and technology have made long distance relationship possible but it's still the human factor that makes the connection. Computers are just the means to connect to what makes us happy and are not the reason for our happiness.

Since the computer has many advantages that is why most people are now dependent on it. Actually it depends on the level of work that you are using the computer to do but it will still be advisable that after using the computer people should find time to do other daily activity like going on outing, taking a walk , reading Gods word e.tc.

Honestly yes, We so much depend on the computer, internet, gadgets, and other technologies right now. Just one click and you will have the information, one click and you will find the location. This is the reality right now, and I think it's really hard to live without the computer and the internet during this time.

Well i think a large portion of our time is now with a computer but i think we are not dependent at it. Technology is what makes life more easier and computer does this in a significant way. The abilities of a computer makes us use it more often because it's easier. Dependent no, i don't think so. We still have to go to activities daily that doesn't need computers we do not notice it because its just a normal redundant activity.
