Can you pick out any of your daily routine activity that does not involve technology? Yes, it is hard to find any! Wherever you look or whatever you want to do requires the involvement of technology via any means. Whether it is household, office or field work, you need to take help of the modern accessories like in past, people used to wash dishes by hand but now there are dish washing machines available.

We work only by using machines or sitting in front of our systems.
Modern technology has also increased the security risks because most of the data is now transferred via internet or mobile phones. Hackers have number of methods to attack this communication path and hack an important data so organizations need to expense out major amount for the security of their secret data.
Outsourcing and freelancing though provides an employment to the people of poor countries but at the same time it also promotes the culture of any one community and thus making it dominant over the others.
Technology is the other name of change and as we see in today’s world, it changes very quickly. After every few days the machineries, software and systems are updated and therefore in order to keep pace with the current trend one has to be aware of the latest technology otherwise they will lag behind in their professional life.
Considering the advantages and disadvantages of technology, we should think about the technology involvement in our lives and try to use it where necessary.
