Computers - by Rayssa Marinho


Most of times, when people think about their future or how communication will have been improved in a few years, technology is always mentioned. At least for teenagers, this one is the most interesting subject to discuss, especially computers, which have been the most useful gadget for a XXI century teenager.

Nowadays, it's difficult to find a teenager who doesn't have a telephone or even more, a PC. Internet is used for all types of things. Playing games and talking with someone who is living across the world are typical actions of this grown-up kid. Not only "home computers" but crucially laptops have become more modern and practical.

When you don't know what life has in store for some economic problem, you can just imagine what will happen by clicking your mouse and searching on "Google". This means that ANY information or news that you would like know is found in this technological gadget!

So in this sense, you can improve your brain with all types of points of view about a subject. The computer is a miscellany of all planet knowledge.This means that, again, this gadget is the most useful for a XXI century teenager.

  3. Hi Raysa !!!
    You focused the Internet as the place that makes the access to knowledge really democratic.
    This is a really positive way of thinking and I totally agree with you. You wrote this article and I'm commenting it from a very small village in Argentina. Internet makes world nearer and it makes our minds wider...

  6. Hi Raysa,
    I've just updated my computer 2 weeks ago and I needed to do this because, surprisingly, I was unable to see or read stuff because my versions were too old. I had updated it last year but after some months I needed more features and more capacity and that is a sign that technology advances very fast and we need to keep up with it. I agree with your idea that the internet has made our lives a lot easier.
    Best

  12. Hi Raysa,

    you're right for computer to bring a lot of change for teenager. The best one is that teenage can get a lot of knowledge from Internet. But there are some troubles with computer developping. For example, some children have been attracted in computer games, in special, internet games. Much time was wasted in computer games so that pupils' basic knowledge has become worse. Many younger men didn't work because they don't have working skills and only have play computer game skills. Some games are very violent that lead some crime of youngers to increase.

  16. Hi Raysa,

    Good point!! I remember I got my first computer and mobile from my dad when I graduated from high school. That was in 2001. But now look all teenager even a 5 year-old kid, they have the latest mobile or laptops or pc at home. We give the documents print from computer instead hand-written. If we are going to overseas, we book everything, like air ticket, accommodations, renting a car, applying a visa…etc, through internet. Internet makes our life easier. Not only teenager can not live without internet, but also everyone can’t live without it. I can’t image how my life will be without mobile and computer.

    Hi, Rayssa. I totally agree with you that our modern life is just impossible without computer in regard to the Internet access and also as great working device. You cant overestimate the advantages - it's just the mustbe device in every house or office nowadays !!!!

  18. This is mostly correct.I think that this technolegy will help
    to the migrated people from overseas.Now days noone can't manage without computer and mobile.
    We can do many works through the computer and internet such as visa applying,studying,reading nespapers ect.
    The teenager are using the computer for their studies.So they can't live in the modern world without comuter and internetinculuding everyone.Finally Iam telling that com../int.. are very helpfull person to every one's life' PARA. 31 MAR 2009

  21. Thanks everyone for your comments ! And sure, I agree with aaall your points of view ! Technology has a loot of good points, but there are bad ones too... You just have to know how to deal with it in your life! Like our English Classes, you know? We are using this blog to improve our knowledge =)

  22. You are absolutely right, Rayssa! I think that when we deal with technology, as well as with everything else in life, it's important to be well-informed and sensible to choose what's most beneficial for us.

    You know? I felt identified with the point about Google in your essay. Whenever I need to know somenthing, I just google it. It's really made my life easier!

    Congratulations on your great essay!

  23. Yeah, but sometimes we find false informations at google too. Also you have to know a little bit of the sites you are entering in. Unleast you want to get a virus. :P
