Man and Technology

Living in the era of technological success and superiority, this title is apt and worth some deliberation.

To kick-start, technology is man's brainchild. Man creates this intelligence to provide convenience as well as efficiency at work and everyday life. As a result, productivity increases, customers and consumers can also smile with contentment. Machines and devices have made difficult and arduous tasks become simple and manageable. This way, life is less stressful and we can have ample time to spend with family and friends.

Technology supersedes many of man's abilities, skills and talent. For example, robotic technology has contributed to medical breakthroughs requiring precision, as well as mass production of goods to meet the market demand. Computer technology has dwindled the size of mother earth to a global village via communication across countries and continents. Definitely, best of all is computer animation which has enhanced the quality of entertainment nowadays and unshackled the paradigms of producers and movie makers.

This blogosphere – http://speakup-avenue.blogspot.com. is a living example of another benefit of technology to education for mankind. The present generation of learners are fortunate to enjoy state-of-the-art digital library at minimum cost, with 24-hour connection to almost anybody with access to the internet. Without multiple net services and facilities, education will be limited within the four brick walls of the classrooms.

What else can man possibly ask for, given all these luxurious technological inventions and innovations?

Perhaps...a little bit more consideration, concern and discretion in applying and using technology in our lives. We get exasperated listening to news of abuse and misconduct, as well as lack sensitivity, with regard to man and technology.

Man can be proud of science, but he should resist from exploiting this knowledge and expertise to produce more lethal weapons and causing any scale of destruction. Similarly, we take pride in gadgets and devices that ensure security and surveillance, but individual privacy must be respected in every way.

This list of considerations, deliberations, and points to ponder, with regard to man and technology, is never exhaustive.You may want to add your own observation and opinion on this topic.

Last but not least, welcome to the reality check on technology - man's best friend which can retaliate and become the worst enemy.

Necessity forces innovative solutions, the question is how the be innovative enough to tell people that a solution is necessary without "necessity" arising in the first place.

People will then say "I can't imagine how I lived without this in the first place"- Like Cafe Latte.

for me, its really a knowledge for me about the article.but, after i read this kind of article, something that is appear in my mind. how can someone dedicate himself for not being use the technology in the wrong way?

We cannot deny that tech. has improved our life.We can travel anywhere on the globe in a short term,communication among us become easier than before,all information about the world or extraterrestrial can be find easily via tech.All are beneficial to us.

However,tech.also can bring catastrophe to us and harmful for us.This happened when it is used for fulfilling desire to become powerful among human being and desire to conquer the world.For example,some country which are powerful want to oppress the weaker country via war.,Technological expertise has given us super-efficient weapon which is used to kill each other in war.Many peoples were dead in war and suffer because of it. So say no to war,we want peace,peace brother.

The best achivements by mankind may also be the worst. This facinates me the most because the advances that we rely on constantly could also be a disadvantage such as the internet, although it is a platform for limitless knowlege, it is also a hub for various crimminal activities such as forging a website to get personal infomation. Its not about the achivements but rather about maximising the pros rather than the cons of an invention.

From my point of view, I believe that any type of technology, if use wrongly, can lead us to our doom. Simple technology such as the elevator is destroying us slowly.Instead of taking the stairs, we take the elevator just to go from G to 1st floor.No simple exercise and no calories burned will surely leads to unhealthy body.Other technologies such as the internet also effecting our health mentally and physically.As an example, online shopping makes our life easier because it is cheap,fast, and easy to use.However, by using it excessively, other that destroying our body, at certain point when we are being away from civilization for too long, our socializing skills will collapse.We can't talk properly to other people anymore.We need to be careful with technologies and use them wisely because anything that we do have their own consequences.

Hello to all dear friends specially Puan Zuraidah;
I studied all the comments and ponded for a while to find something as an Idea then I remembered this story which is the story of all our ancestors for previous eras that I thought maybe some have forgotten it.
Ages also decades ago a simple life was such a challenge for human being who always has desired to switch over to better and better.
He/She has been successful to getting this aim but unfortunately forgot the real purpose,moral and spiritual meaning of life among this career, its why we see abuse of technology in such a modern world.
Blaming technology is not something fair while we can blame abusers.
Although human being are created colorful and different , also there are to many doctors who save millions of peoples every day by using technology and so on....
If there was not any mp3 player how would it be possible for me to sooth my soul without listening to Andrea Bocelli,Kitaro and Yani etc,?!

A very warm welcome to Puan Zue.Technology has indeed changed the way of modern human lifes.This human intelligence has made most works in our lives so convenient.For example,the introduction of mobile phones in human lives has made most of their works easier because the modern handphones consists of camera,internet,music player and etc.Technology had also helped human in research and space probes. For example,NASA(Nasional Aeronautics And Space Administration) the United States space agency, providing current information on its robotic space exploration missions.Technology had changed the modern people's life to be more efficient and convenient.

Norex said...

are there any surprises left??well,how can people imagine to create phones,tv and all the high-tech stuff early days before.thus,machines can show our level of civilization.. .dependence on machines is something we can't avoid..let the river of modernization flow.indeed,there's some bad thing about machines,but we cannot expectt all the thing to run perfectly..as pure,holy of angels,there's also bad,hatred of evils!

man n technology!!! interesting topic.. yaa..technology make our life more easier and faster.. without an technology, i think our life become like a 'Stone Age' or 'kuno' and we dont no what was happen in our country, world, and also universe.=p
actually, i love tecnology, and i very interested in electronics and robotics.. this sept i have an Robogamez at UNITEN but this year i only as a volunteer for the registration..i hope for the next competition i will participate for this game..=)
as we know, all the work such as washing, banking, registration, and also playing a game is done by a robot with electrical.. try to imagine if our world without an electric for the whole day..our works become more complicated right????.. so try to use this technology in rite way.....

S.LAAGESWARAN (AE81079) said...

technology is now first thing that people thinking . this is because nowadays there is many kind of technology that have been invented such as computers, handphones,robots ,electronic devices that can entertain us.moreover it also make human life easier such as robotics which is commonly used in factory to produce good quality of product with less time and less human resouce.but may be in the futere it will be effect us as a human being such as people will more lazy because robot will do all work and give side effect to human health.

Hi Pn.Zue,
Technology plays many important roles in our life. Besides processing data, it can store, edit, share knowledge and etc. With these wondrous multifunctions of technology, some people misused it and some even used it to spread slanders, rumours, and bad things that sooner or later will effect other people's life. Besides that, some people who have savoir faire might used the technology to trick girls and soon will lead to social problems. These kinds of troubles were all came from irresponsible human beings. As a matter of fact, technology isn't the one to blame, it's the fault of people who uses it in the wrong and bad way. De facto, it's the users to realize that they can gain lots of benefits via technology and shouldn't misapply in life.

aloha,
pn.zue....

hmmmm... technology??? there is a time where dogs called as man's best friend but now... technology is man's best friend... its true because... now we can live without pets but not without technology..... because we need technology in daily life and to smoothen our daily routines... but no one think about the consequenses of using high-tech just for simple simple thing.... for instance.... whenever we want to go somewhere far we wil use car.motorbike or even aeroplanes to reach to our destination but for short distance we always walk... but now... people often using a small vehicles which powered by battery to move... they dont walk even for a place which we can reach by 2minutes by walking they use the small vehicle by giving reason "SAVE TIME".... but ever they think about the consequenses... no sweat?? no energy is used?? gosh!! can we assume this is the main factor for obesity problem which is rising drastically around the world?? what should we do?? as we explore more to technologies, we forget the important part of everthing which is"THERE IS LIMIT FOR EVERYTHING" as we going more and more forward in technology that close we are to reach the end of mankind.... we already using our technology above the limitation... so one day we all will pay for it... what should we do when technology that human created to smoothen our life's... become the reason for extinction of mankind...

Tech nowadays are so important.It plays a big role in our life.Man nowadays cannot live without it coz technology has covered in every single aspect in human life such as computer,machines,handphones and so much more.But be careful,Too much of technologies can bring effects to human.For example,human will become to depend on machines until they become lazy and thats can bring bad effect to human health.

tots. said...

it's true that we depend too much on technology nowadays. technology make our lives "easier" so they say... but is it really true? aren't most worker's out of jobs due to machines? are we not unfit due to the fact that we let machines do our exercise? but we cant look only towards the evil of technology (hehehe) they do provide us with communication, transportation and so much more. but it depends solely on which angle you choose to see technology from to be able to classify technology as "good" or "evil" ( as evil as shopping malls that close early) hahaha.

KhAn_ZaTi da UlTiMaTe said...

this is a very nice article about man and technology.. people this days dont realize what technology have become and advance in our live because we were born in this high tech world but those who once live in the past would find today technology as confisticated and highly advance and some of them would also think it as "alien technology". so we think as the people born in this era should be considerate and most importantly not missuse the technology that brings bad influence to our society which are learning this high tech that are advance from abroad which are more sophisticated and smart. last but not least we think technology are much more affected with our life than we think. with great power comes with great responsibility. what it means is with this technology in our hand, remember to be considerate and responsible and never missuse it. thank you!

ntah said...

will human will be like the human in wall E???? human need technology but, as seed empty said, will human use the technology in a right way??????

Qayyum said...

This article reminds me of the movie "Terminator". Althought nowdays technology has aceed human's capatibitlity, but it is still not considered as "perfect". it does not have human's ability to expand our knowledge and common sences.Therefore technology is not superior to human beings but as a tool to help us perform our daily activity easily.Technology like computers can expand knowledge via internet but only when it is program to do so.

capt.jack24 said...

as in the article man do depaends on technolgy to run their routine of life..but as seed empty said there is no guarantee that man would use the technology privileges given wisely...the question is,if the situation is man has to depend on technology to survive then what would happen future...will we be like the people in the WALL E movie....

capt.jack24 said...

man has created the technology.this is a fact that all of us know.but what is going on nowadays is results of man who tries to ease down the burden of the their lifes.they create lot technology based machines to help them to run their daily life routine.wat will happen if one day the machine able to think by theirselves.will the machine still helps the man.?but the matter is as long as man is the one who creates machine till they will have a grip on them..

zue said...

nice thought there, Qayyum...perhaps we don't have to worry so much if these smart machines will overpower us, coz we programme them...so? prove that we are the superior species by limiting their superiorities. capt jack hit the spot! never be overly dependent till we become too lazy and end like the wall-e movie characters - sad. Nevertheless, when it's a matter of life or death, we can't disregard the indispensable roles of these machines and technology.

LinanimE said...

assalammu'alaikum,pn.zue...in my opinion...
Man is not only the creator of technology, but there is also a proces through which man becomes dependant on technology and is formed by it. The mass-media history is marked by great technological mutations, which, in different stages modified the means of production, spreading and consumption of information. Once the new webs or supports like satellites, electronic or optic devices were created, we got to live one of those mutations called digital revolution and which, we feel, will have important consequences on our way of communicating, work and entertaining ourselves.

ng chalice said...

true. man has played with fire far to many times that we can count.
the evolution of weapons is massive. from the simple bow and arrow, to the modern m-16 and better still, the atomic bomb.
all of which were meant to keep man safe, but also destroying man themselves as well. honestly the only thing good about technology is cellphones.
but,..... long term usage, rumor says that it will developed a brain tumor.
hahahahah
speaking of exploiting mother earth, i was wondering if you or your kids have watch avatar. its not just an animated film. the story is pretty much linked to reality as well.
we are all, earths children, if according to greek mythology. we are hurting her. making her angry, sad, and frustrated with us.
we killed her other children,and the things which brought, us closest to her.
so honestly, i just wish that humans will come back to common sense.and love our mother as she have loved us for the past million decades.......

Tiah Oon Tjoe said...

Well, the only thing i could think of is Terminator when i saw this but then again. I'm trying to be serious here "Rofl" (rolls on floor laughing)

Ahem, (putting serious face) Nobody's perfect, or should i say NOTHING's perfect except for God. So basically if a non-perfect being creates another thing, logically, the creation would be less perfect.

Men think that they can improve, be innovative, smart and advanced. They think that they know what they're doing but our greatest ambition and highest achievements are nothing in God's sight.

We seem to have forgotten that everything has it's side effects. (negatively speaking). So the MORE we try to innovate and create, the MORE side effects would arise and MORE problems would emerge.

So let's just all quit our engineering course and start planting trees. (JOKING) But seriously. we're just like kids playing lego as our parents look on. We think we know what we're doing. But whatever we're doing is way beyond our comprehension since we're limited by our finite thinking.

I'd say i love technology, sadly it has so many side effects. Eg. Addiction to the screen =D

Ngam Min Chuan (alex) said...

Wow, a post that keeps me thinking.
and 1 sentence??.....this is hard. Just not the way I express myself online. Anyway, here goes..

Man versus Technology, no doubt that both are interdependent. And there are no question which is far more important in this modern times. Tech have indeed changed human life is many ways. But what I really want to share today is about being updated with technology.
Being updated with the latest Tech or Gadgets on the market must be everyone's duty. Owning a headphone means nothing these days. There are smartphones that allows us to do far greater then just talking to the person on the other side. There are tablets which allows us to get worldwide information. How about super computers? Unbelievable functions. From doing a simple slideshow to a animated movie with 30-100 frames per sec. Just imagine the things we all did for the last couple of years and the years to come. Amazing right?
Knowing this is not the catch, but being up to date with tech is the main point. If you have many unanswered questions about tech such as "What is the latest gadget?, What is the most powerful supercomputer? What can a Smartphone do besides calling and messaging?", that means you should really start getting updated with Technology!.
Now stop wasting your time day dreaming and watching televisions and instead start Googling it up!

Jason Chan said...

Just started or the end ?
Human develops technology back in time, why? To achieve good? Better? Or even best? Human can never be satisfied, more and more things to be discovered acknowledging the effects that it causes from it. Despite the benefits from technology is really useful,we could see the environment are suffocated and disasters occurs. How could this technology helped us then if it's the cause of our disasters? So, is this the start of our gain in technology and the end of our worries. OR, the start of the technology's intelligence and the end of the world.

Himmet said...

The advancement of technology is a crucial component in the development of the human race. Some people say that the pros of technology do not outweigh its cons. Many people are influenced by movies which are based on the destruction of mankind due to its pursuit of knowledge such as the Terminator series, Resident Evil, and Doom. However, they fail to realize that technology is also the reason they have a roof over their heads as well as architectural wonders like the Petronas Twin Towers. Furthermore, the advancement of technology is also responsible for air travel, automobiles, the internet and many breakthroughs in the medical industry. Therefore, it is clear that the advancement of technology is the only way to increase the quality of living of humans. Hence, we must do everything in our power to ensure mankind never gives up on technology.

In todays technology, personal computers and androids are just the small jigsaw. Isolating from this new era is equivalent to denying the fact that chicken are made by God for us to eat. We need technology. Here's the hitch, everyone has their Facebook account. If not so, they must have their own email account. In other words, the survival of today's world is how tech-savvy you are. I'm vocal in this, we could not live with out technology.

The real matter is about, are we forever going to be the consumer of technology? When are we going to break the horizons and create technologies of our own? I believe that we have the ultimate potentials to grow beyond and contribute instead of just consuming to technology. As important technology is to us, it is also important to produce technology of our own.

What happens when we lack of autonomy in technology is, we tend to buy and buy technologies from outside the country. And ofcourse, the field that consumes technology includes the medical, engineering and also the market field. We spend a lot of money for this, and if we continue we cannot sustain to survive. A better solution is to work hard and aim for excellence and master the technology because we know very well it centrals to the benefit for human. Indeed, we are the entity that should take the bold step and enhance our technology breakthrough. It will be charming, if one day Malaysia has something to offer to the technology world. And as the young youth, we have all the forces in the world to make it a reality.

Talking about Man and Technology. It reminds me how technology had changed our life from the stone age to this modern era. But still, evolving of technology also has it's disadvantages to mankind. So here I'll like to prove that technology will also bring disadvantages to mankind.
The very first disadvantages is that technology had made us become more lazy. It's obvious by just looking at our muscle tissue. Human from long time ago mostly has muscular and stronger body as they have to do most of the work manually.But look at what we have now? We got robots to do the heavy work for us. And unlike the ancient times, we can travel with cars, train and others. Our body is smart, when it realise that it don't need to supply so much energy for our body, it will eventually going degradation to preserve our energy. As a result, man become more and more lazy, in the end they have to fully rely on machines in order to survive.
Another disadvantages is the problems of social life, especially among teenagers. I remember that during my childhood, computer is still a very expensive item and still not considered as a luxury item for entertainment. During that time, we kids used to come out from our house and play together around the residential area. We used to play hide-and-seek together, climbing trees, catch tadpole from the ditch and other fun stuffs. BUT! look at the teenagers nowadays! Most of the kids nowadays rarely come our from their house to play with friends, because of watching tv shows, playing computer games, go facebook and other technology stuff. I even meet one kid who don't even know what hide-and-seek is! There's also some kids telling that they will die if facebook shut-ed down! As a result of evolving of technology, the direct communication between humans are getting worst day by day. And so some social sickness like being too shy to talk, anti-social feelings and others start to exist among teenagers.
As conclusion, evolving of technology also cause many bad side effects at the same time. Although said to be the most brilliant creatures among all organism on Earth, man still have a long way to go in order to use the technology they have fully and correctly.

Human intelligence which is something very unique that given by God. Therefore, when we have intelligent other skill will start to develop like creativity and many
others of man's abilities,skills and talent. Those skills are meant for us to learn, helping each other, and to over come problems. We can see that , now we are in the advance era, there are so many technology which are created for us to live with less work and more comfortable . Everyday there are new technology inventions, I mean how facinating and brilliant we are. I believe there are no such thing as perfect in this world , therefore its also apply on to our technologies and product like machinces and advance electronic gadget . Everything around us have its con and pro. We must use the advantage of a certain technology to over come the disadvantage . When the advanteges are being misuse , these will causes alot of trouble to us. For example, we created camera for capture images, but some people misuse its function and modify it to be an infrared camera which can see our naked body when we have our cloths on. These kind of unthical 'brilliant' which make the advantage to be disadvantage. We must use our technology wisely and morally, thus we can enjoy the benefit and the main purpose of it.

Assalamualaikum Pn.Zue..

Man created technology to better improve human existence. Many of the technological advances over the centuries have made life easier and more enjoyable. But despite the good intentions behind most inventions many are doing more harm to our society than good and in various ways take part in the hidden destruction of society. Televisions and video games consume our time and control our thoughts. The internet, which is a great resource, now is mostly used for recreation. I-pods and mp3 players along with the internet help aid in media piracy. Cell phones and other handheld devices allows for constant use; so our minds are consumed all the time. The advancement of technology also brings about greed; companies try to make products better than the next striving to make more money. Any concern for the consumer is nonexistent. Man becomes so reliant on technology that the natural skills each human being possess tend to go unused.As a conclusion, technology is excellent until you no longer control the machine, but instead let the machine control you.

Thank you.

Before we enter this high technology era, man do everything such as build their houses by their own hands and strength. Definitely they are hardworking and independence, but they spend around four to five months for a wooden house and they proud of it that time. Nowadays, man can build a high building within two to three months onlybut it is nothing. An easier explanation is between "study hard" and "study smart". Can you see the difference? Yes! This is the power of technology!The invention of new high technology machines is derectly proportional to man's problems.
Technology provide convenience to us, but maybe some of us will equalise the word "convenience" with "man getting lazy". Yes, obviously this is one of the side effect of high technology. But please spend a few minutes and imagine you are now in a world without computers, phones, transportation and any high tech machines. What you have are only forest, grass, animals and wooden house. What you will feel? I can sure that "OMG" will be the first sentence that came out from you. Man cannot survive without technology but technology is nothing without man. Impossible you are expecting a rat to drive car right? Unless you are watching a movie.
Even though there are some side effect of high technology, but it is negligible compare to the beneficial of it! Come on future engineers! Let's work together and bring the world to the peak of technology!

Tiew Eng Yang said...

Hi Pn.Zue.....

Nowadays,technology make us more convenience and improve our life quality.In other words,We also rely on technology too much and causes us cant lived without it.

Actually,technology can help us save the time,reduction steps,prevent privacy and so on.....It can show us the true ways to done the work or mission and easier to storage in the small spaces.That's the symbolize for the force of innovation of technology.

Technology had changed the modern people's life to be more efficient and convenient.It is the Man thinks to create this intelligence technology to provide us.But it also had some of the disadvantage to us....So we must be a smart user to choose the true things to improve our life style and far away the side effect...

that's all...
thnks...

farid jafre said...

hi pn zue,

It is true that technology has proven to be a major help to humans since the past centuries. communications, machinery,manufacturing, transport and lots of other field consume technologies.It's undeniable that technology is a good thing and it makes life more easier.
but,excessive use of technology is not making life easy,instead it makes life quite meaningless.for example,ordering clothes or accessories through the internet is something unecassary while you can just walk yourself to the outlet and get it yourself. it would be much more easier to see your item before purchasing it.It would be more satisfying and definitely could burn those tummy fat while you're at it.haha

so,use technology wisely and don't take advantage on it because it would just make you a lazy person.

thank you.

Pavendhran said...

Good evening Puan Zue,

This topic has cause quite a stir among the people of earth.They believe that man is acting god in term of creating a better and safer world for all of us to live in.Well I think that this statement are by cowards who just think that that only their lives matters and no one else.Keep in mind that during the years of the pharaohs and king’s,a simple flu can actually kill a living being.This shows us that without the existence of technology,many people would have died and penincilin which is a type of antibiotic would’nt exist at all which is the main reason why we are all living right now.You may say that man has caused all the disease and treachery in this world but don’t make me laugh at your face and say that man did bring about a lot of expansion in the field of medicine,philosophy and even literature.Would people be able to trade among the nations of the world if they didn’t use the stars to guide them through the seas,would people enjoy the presence of light during the night if Thomas Edison didn’t create a light bulb and the greatest of all is that would people be having a term of transportation and any mechanics that exist now if Sir Isaac Newton didn’t introduce the very foundation’s of physics through his book “Principia Mathematica”.

What I’m trying to say is we human’s should let technology expand and not disrupt the very foundations of it.Yes it is true that there is a black spot towards the existence of technology which can bring about a lot of disadvantages but when we really think about it,we are not perfect and no one is except for God so technically people make mistakes.

Thank you Puan Zue for you’re time,

Your’s faithfully,

Pavendhran

1 man lead the technology with his intelligence while others being pampered with the man's intelligence.Need any information?Just google it.Need any friends to chat with?Just log in to any social network.Imagine that suddenly power failure happens to the globe for just 1 hour,will mankind still be able to handle their daily task without the help of gadgets properly?Indeed rely on the technology will lead the world to the high productivity era.However,vulnerability comes along by being too dependent to it.Technology should be the great assistant of humans but not dominator.Use it wisely or you'll be the slave of it.

Chiam Yung Sheng said...

Yes,we all know that man creates technology and technology are created to make our life simple but then there are always a 'cons' behind 'pros',and human beings nowadays are too dependent on technology.For example digital dictionary are created to make our life easier and the moment you type a word,the meaning and explanation immediately pop out to the screen,but kids nowadays asking their parents to buy 1 of these dictionary for them to bring it to school and this happen to my little cousin who is 8yrs old,i still remember i got my very 1st dictionary at the age of 12 and my dictionary is just like a typical thick,heavy,book type dictionary and i have to carry it everyday to school and now im still using the same dictionary but not the digital dictionary.Another greatest things that man had created is the internet,well internet really make our life easier by saving our time,cost to go to the library or shop to buy newspaper or to find some information.We can now sit in front of our computer and with internet,all information that we want can get it split of seconds and it is reliable.These greatest invention of technology is not perfect as what we thought,pornography website are everywhere on the internet and our children tends to surf it when we are not around and there is alot of virus and hacker in the internet to steal our important document such as credit card no. and prototype.Therefore technology have alot of advantages and disadvantages,this is totally depend on us how are we going to make use of these technology,misuse of technology for sure is going to harm us and our country no matter how great the technology is.TQ.

What would happen if life without technology? It would be disaster. We can say that our life almost fully depend on technology. Technology makes our life more convenient and comfortable. When we go to school, work or any place we use transport. When we are bored, we use television, DVD player, etc. as entertainment. When we want to enjoy, we play games through internets, play station, hand phones and a lots more. Technology and man have strong relation and we can’t deny it. However, it brings side effects to us, environment and our earth. Since every second we have been using technology, we could not avoid from polluting the earth. But we can reduce it using the 3R concept which is reduce, reuse and recycle. Technology plays important role in our life and man will always invent new technology from day to day so that our life would become much easier. As we can see nowadays, there are many technologies invented and we are proud of it!

Deshvin Singh said...

Man and technology has come a long way since mankind existed. Man would have never developed if there were no technology, and technology would have never existed if mankind did not made them.
I would like to stress on the effect of too much dependent on technology. 0ne cannot avoid the fact that technology is ultimately important in our daily lives. However, i'm proposing that there should be guidelines and limits when it comes to usage and dependent on technology. As an example, the weak state of social communication is being effected badly due to technology, as people get more driven into technology, that they tend to forget their real life socialising skills. Social networks help but till a certain extend. There should be a limiting factor that allows people to walk away form their keyboards and meet up face to face with someone. I am not saying that technology is bad, but it just need to be used in a right way. Dont you think so ?

Everything around us is related to technology.they are born from the factory,place which is full of technology.Robotic hand, conveyor belt, including the toilet flush system..

imagine that we enjoy rest of our life in a cave and along the river.although there are still some of them today,but atlease they have what we call as house.it shows that technology can make our life easier.

there is no light bulb, what is a torchlight, the only source of light is the sun.how about the night...we are blind when night comes.

technology is a living thing.it can give birth, evolving through times.there are men that spend their lives to improve technology.what is technology without us.we someday will be that particular men.
prepare for the technology revolution...

what attitude a normal man has ?? the head of the country & home . who think that he himself is the strongest or the best .
Contradictions is the attitude that a man has . they clear that the advance of technology will harm the environment & harm our human life .
But because of fight for money , they still work it ... they is no way to turn back for a man to choose for their life ambition because of family life . as we know usually dad give the main income for a family the 2nd income is our mum ...
Technology will improve our human life & era . imagine that 1 day we can control our own robot 2 do job for us .. fight for the technology !!

No woman no cry,no technology only He knows.Technology is not just about communication,internet and robot.A simple system such as pulley system is also a technolgy.Without a pulley system,people wont know about the crane at the construction site.Technolgy make life easier.Without a crane,man must carry a thousand of bricks to the upper level of a building.Without a blender all the domestic engineer must use the 'batu giling' in the kitchen.Let's make life simpler.Create technolgy when you are graduate,Innovate technolgy when you are married and Use technology wisely when you are retired.

Of course man need technology in order to have a better life. Nowadays our world now is full with technology, technology help us a lot especially our daily life. Now we are so dependent on technology, and without it our life may be miserable.However technology has it owns disadvantages too. For instances,it may cause damage to the environment if we didnt use it appropriately, for example technology enable us to innovate somethings we known as air cond, but do you know that air cond actually demolish our nature little bit by bit by emmiting some sort of gas known as CFC which will make our ozone layer to become thinner.

Ah Niel said...

Technology might be a very very good thing for us, human in life. Yet we human also need to control the use of technology too. Over-use of technology is just like overdose of vitamins in human, which means death. Not to us human only, but also our mother Earth. Carbon footprints produced by internet, CO2 by vehicles, toxic waste by factories damages our planet seriously. We need to control ourselves and save the Earth before everything is too late. Everyone in this Earth should be responsible to the environment while enjoying the comfort from technology.

In short, I suggest that technology is indispensible in our lives yet we should control ourselves not to misuse the technology we have and do our best to rescue our home, our Earth. Thank you~

'speakup-avenue.blogspot.com. is a living example of another benefit of technology to education for mankind'. So true, pn, zue, i couldnt agree more. Yes, man creates technology and technology gives us bads and goods. Even the smallest thing that we do in our daily life is technology. But there is one thing that mankind afraid of. Will machines outsmart man? This is one of the consequences that will happen if man continuously depends on the technology. Yes we do NEED technology but there are certain things we do not need it. For example, in a test, students learn many things how to cheat in exam. Mobile phones play a major role in this situation. Let say iphone, you can actually google the answer directly from the phone. Isnt that technology at the first place? Hence technology does bring the the goods and the bads. Think wisely before you something worse would happen. A quote from Mark Kennedy 'All of the biggest technological inventions created by man - the airplane, the automobile, the computer - says little about his intelligence, but speaks volumes about his laziness'

Qamarul Hafiz said...

Salam Pn Zue,

Take a look around us,almost everything around us is related to technology.From your mobile phone to your car and the laptop you are using to view this blog this the result of Man and his technology.These are some of examples of what man is capable of.But these examples are just the tip of the iceberg because these are just simple instruments that is created to solve not so complicated problems.

To see the full extent of man's capability you don't have to look too far, just take a look at your car.Cars nowadays are mostly equipped with airbags to lessen the injury sustain from an accident.Airbags saved millions of life since it's creation.Another Man's invention that make Malaysia a safe place to live is it's defence system.These system helps every Malaysian live everyday without worries of outsiders invading Malaysia

To make a long story short, technology is an important aspect of life because it helps everyone to have a safer life.

Lee Han Xiang said...

Nowadays, I can say that we are too relying on technology and we just like cannot live without it. Let me ask you a question, do you have any fan in your house? I am sure you have more than 2 fans in your house. From this example, you can know that how we rely on technology nowadays.

It is undeniable that technology has brought so many benefits to us. However, it has also brought negative impact to us. When someone use the technology to do bad things such as creating some lethal weapon that may cause a huge destruction.

In this case, I would like to tell you a story. When someone uses a knife to kill a person, who’s wrong is this? The murderer or the knife? Be rational, we create things that to help us, but no to make the things more complicated.

There is nothing wrong to create something like knife, gun and bomb. Some people said because of technology, it makes more people to die during war. Yes, I agree with that. But in another hand, if there is no technology exists on this world is it means that no one will die during the war?

It is not good to blame on technology but not the people who abuse it. Technology can be a man’s best friend as well as the worst enemy. In this case, we just have to make sure that technology will always be our best friend and that is enough to us.

Teh Jian Zhi said...

Technology, no doubt can bring a lot of benefits to the mankind, make things easier, save on time and so on. But, at the same time, if it is being abused by the mankind, it will bring a lot of bad impacts too. It is undeniable that with the help of technology, work and tasks can be completed faster. But, over time it will grow the laziness on the mankind. Man will start to rely on the technology and no longer do their work by themselves. Abuse of technology will also make the young generations to have no ability to compete with the society as they are just able to use the technology to do their work. In short, I can just say that everything in this world has its own pros and cons. It is just the matter how you use the technology. Before you consider of using technology products, please think carefully, is it actually that human are controlling the technology or vice versa?

wanmaru said...

We cannot resist what is already there infront of our eyes. Say, most people talk about the effect of misused technology that can abused the world extremely. What can we do? the world will still end with or even without technology. So, i'd say we know that people from the earlier just using the stone to do jobs like cutting, and building? Was that technologies? ofcourse. Does it affect the environment? absolutely no. We can see that the evolution of technology passed to generation by generation and does make the life become much more easier. Its not that we shouldn't use technology at all, its all about yourself that using it. Without technologies, can you write the comments in this thread? You using it now right? reading my comments via technology techno isn't? Everything infront of you now is technology. So, just use it! Wisely.. :) no offense! xD

atikah.kecik said...

Technology is everywhere nowadays. It is true that technology make our work more easier than before. technology gives us benefits. But, technology also bring a bad effects to us. Nowadays we can see that other countries are having wars and they use that kind of technology to attack other country. As a result, people are dead and the country itself destroyed and got a bad damaged. For a conclusion, technology must be used in a right way not to destroy other country.

Hamidi Zulkifli said...

It is simple.Firstly,human is not perfect.So,they kept on creating and inventing advanced technology and machines to back up their weaknesses in doing thing in their life.Nowadays,people can get connected easily even being hundred miles away from each other,any information can be collect easily just with one click and many more.Yes,all these technology do improves the quality of human life.

However,we also realized that technology is made by human,so it it not perfect.Other than benefit us,it also give harm to us and our mother nature.If the technology is used for a wrong purposes,that what's happen in World War 2 where 2 atomic bomb were drop in Japan.This tragedy causes serious trouble and suffer to the people that live in that area.

In short,the technology has it own pros and cons.It actually depends on how we use it.Human create the technology and human should be able to control it.

that all,thank you

Do we know that we are surrounded by all sorts of technology?yes,we should know about it..With the help of technology,we can live more easily and readily..As a clear example is improvement of transportation field..Do we know that the first car invented by using the concept of bike?..Then,they maked some improvement until the car that we use now..Without the transportation,can you get quickly to work,visiting relatives who live far away from you and traveling to other state..Obviously,technology maked us live easily and faster..So,I think technology gives a huge distribution of our life..Besides that,we also should appreciated all invented technology.

Andy Low said...

Mankind has been abusing technology since technology evolution began. Has man not tainted every bit of life due to the wickedness and sinful part of himself? Technology is a wonderful discovery that has made man strong and still since the coming of age. Abuses of technology like war, stealing of identifications, money, and also information are common now a days. Ladies and gentlemen, light bulb was invented so we could see in the dark, fire was created so we could cook our meals and keep us warm, and the internet, to supply us with infinite information. All these are considered the fruit of technology.
Within each being, when there's evil, there's always a good side. They're a balanced mechanism like Ying and Yang. Hence, it would be impossible to stop humans from abusing technology but reducing it will be a good stepping stone towards a better future.

ashwini said...

Technology makes life to be much easier.Technology can be used for good, but with new developments come new challenges issues.Technology brings fewer disadvantanges to us too.We have become over dependent on our machinery and cannot seem to function without it: (computers, television, automobiles.)Therefore,there are also the pro and cons in using the technology.

Affridzal said...

Salam Madam Zue,
50 years ago people would not have not imagine that there will be touchscreen devices,computers and etc.But the world have change so rapidly ,just imagine what kind of technologies will be existed in another 50 years to come.Looking at the speed and progress of the world im sure touchscreen devices and computers will be no more a suprising devices because the technology will be better and also will be freakingly advance.
So,witout man's brainchild technology will not expand to the next level.

shahfiqual said...

Technology is the creation, usage and knowledge of tools, techniques, crafts, systems or methods of organization in order to solve a problem or serve some purpose. With the increased use of technology in, students with a wide range of abilities have greater opportunities to learn and participate in educational activities. For example, students with health impairments who are unable to attend school regularly can keep up with their classmates by using online learning programs and mobile technologies. Students with physical disabilities can use alternative keyboards, mice, and computers to access learning materials with greater ease and independence. Students who struggle with reading can use special computer programs that read text out loud to them. Students who have difficulty with writing can use word processors to check for grammar and spelling errors and assist them with editing. Technology can open doors for many students with special needs. It also, however, can impede learning if it is not designed to be accessible to students and the assistive technology they use, such as alternative keyboards and screen reading software. For students with disabilities, technology barriers may occur in a number of ways.

Loh Wei Yi said...

Nowadays technology is just like our life partner. Whatever we do sure relate to technology. Someone says without technology human will die, but someone also says that technology will make human die in future. It makes sense right? For instance, in Japan nuclear technology originally is develop to improve the lifestyle of their citizen. However, the technology itself also cause lot of trouble due to tsunami. Human invent car that will give out gases that can destroy our Earth. Why can't they also invent some technology that can destroy those gases before they harm our Earth? In short, technology got pros and cons. All we hope is that government or scientist can develop some technology that can improve the 'health' of our Earth. :)

Boo said...

Technology, is everywhere, everytime around us. But is technology so important for us? We couldn't live without technology?
It is true that technology can improve our life, our country and other countries. But at the same time, it creates a lot of problems.
For me, i really hope that there is no technology in the world, even there is no light or electricity. Compare among last few century people with moderns day people, the lifestyle, thoughts and attitude have changed. Do you think that the children nowadays have a memorable childhood as past century children? They do not enjoy the true meaning of 'life' anymore. Technology have changed everything.

Ł◘ŁĽĩP◘P ♥ ŁỷиN said...

Technology are really man’s best friends, almost everything in our life is technology. With the help and improvement of technology, the world are actually getting smaller and smaller. Long long time ago, we need months to travel from one place to one, we need months to communicate from somewhere far and we will be left out from what happening in our mother land if we were at overseas. But with the moden technology, we can travel to the opposite of the earth for only 14 hour, we can communicate with everyone worldwide with the help of internet. This is how important technology are to us.
But there are always the bad in something, with technology now a day, human become more and more lazy. They intend to rely on the machine of software to do their work. For example, typing a article. Those day, a writer need to have a very strong language skills to write an article, but now with the help of the spelling and grammar check in computer. Human cant improve in their language skills and they will never notice their mistake as the computer will auto correct out mistake. It might be good that we can produce wonderful article with no mistake, at the same time, we can never improve ourselves.
Technology are they to help us and we should not over rely on it, what if the technology is down one day. And it will be so hard for us to survive.

dhineshkaran said...

Dear Pn. Zue

haiz... I get to know that i miss this part miss.Sorry for the delay miss.

Technology made our lives simple but much dependent on it.We can just sit in a corner and get connected to the world. Thus making the world a "global community." Whatelse if we can communicate with a person in remote area within of seconds ,make a trip of the places we desire to go within no time, all these are possible with the advanced technology ,making us more dependent on its usage.Just imagine the life without technology, couldn't even imagine about it. Its true that technology reduces man's effort but the consequences in the matter of positive prospect.

AliReza said...

Dear Pn.Zue,
Nowadays everything around us have relate to technology. it is more than 10 years people used computer. it made a big revolution to all human life. after that all the edge of our life had changed.technology or all the new things have a positive and negative benefits, if we learn how to use it in a right way we can win.

ahmadsaufi said...

technology has improved humans' life since the early days of adam and eve. and until today it will grow and grow until the world ends. because that is the nature of humans' life. never satisfied and feel enough with what they have. there are many kind of people out there. so its really up to the cleverness of them and how wise they are to use the technology in a good or bad way. for me if it is use in a good way, it will bring joy to the world. and if it is use in a bad way, it will bring disaster to the world. especially when it comes to the technology of weapons mass destruction such as the chemical weapons etc. tq.

turki said...

technology is everywhere in today in world,we cant live without it , now its coming part of our life because the technology and science make our lives easier. Blaming technology is not something fair, the fault of people who is using wrong way.
i think technology began to exist when the invention of electricity because everything related to it when its stop, the earth will be dark and the life coming difficult and slow.

Ahmad Shah Azril said...

salam and good morning puan zue..

I totally agree with your last sentences in the article which is, “man's best friend which can retaliate and become the worst enemy”. Technology really does help us in many ways to quicken our work as well as make it all easier but sometimes in the hand of some irresponsible people, technology can become a very bad thing. For example, the internet is something that had helped almost everyone in this world, whether in the context of communication or studying but in some cases, internet is used by other people to do bad things such as stealing people information and hacking. If you recall, our own Malaysian government website have already been hacked once by a group which called themselves as "anonymous", even though their main intention can be considered as good but still it's an unethical act which gave problem to those people whom in charge in monitoring the website and maybe endanger the integrity of information stored in the website.

My second point is that today’s technology as we know it are already advanced and systematic but do we really have use technology to its fullest. Some of us still stick with the old manual type simply because of their fear and untrusted nature towards technology. Yes, it actually is true that something are required to be done manually but a lot of other things can be done much better and faster with technology. Furthermore, technology also can help the campaign for greener world. For example, the use of softcopy format can eliminate the existence hardcopy format and subsequently minimize the usage of paper. But how often do we use this softcopy format or do we still print everything?
That’s all of my point.

Thank you for reading and also thanks for your time... :)

Wow,this kind of title,Man vs technology !! I have no idea to share, I don't know what are the things that I must do if the technology doesn't exist, Maybe everyday I will come late to the class,Maybe cmc question don't appear here.Maybe we won't know each others and we won't know what is the KLCC.

We cannot live without technology, for example if something bad happen, we need to use technology to solved it.bad things can come in many kind of form, health problem or even natural disaster.

But we must realize that lately technology has make us change from human to robot without we noticed it. Do you realize technology people wear hearing aid, technology people wear spectacles, all because the uses of technology. We cannot live a day, without the internet conection, we depend on the wire to communicate with each other....Now because of technology we have become a robot. Depending on our baterry (technology) to live from day to day......

Sakinah Ar said...

Man and technology is something that cannot be separated. It just like best friend to a human nowadays. We also cannot deny that technology has improved our live. For example the uses of phone that make everything become easier. We can use it anywhere and anytime we like to communicate with others. If we look back before technology has coming to our day. It is so difficult to communicate to other people in local area what more in outside the country. So, that shows how the tech. has made most work in our lives so convenient. That is not only for phone but nowadays many improvement and enhancement of technology that we can see just in our surrounding that growth from day to day. The uses of internet are also the most important thing nowadays. Everybody is depending on it to do their work. The use of technology has covered in every single aspect in human life and too much of technologies can make lazy people in doing their work by their own. The worst it people that use technologies to harm other people life. For example people that create nuclear technology to use it in war. This shows that we are already using our technology above the limitation. So one day we will pay for it..the thing is technology is important but do not to depending on it because human creation is incomparable with creation from Allah s.w.t..;)

Technology simplifies life,and it has many beneficial effects to the community and the human condition. The technologies available to people greatly influence how their lives are as well as people have influence on technology’s development and how it is used. However, people should take advantage of the technology advances and use it wisely in benefit to their lives.

Reda said...

In my opinion this topic is so interesting to read. Technology is very important in our lives because with the technology our live become easier and less time and effort .
Also using a technology has tow way, right way and wrong way. So we cant imagine our work in one day without using an electric, our work will become so difficult and poring and maybe wrong.
Now a days, technology is a first thing that people thinking, because at these moments there is many kind of technology that have been invented like computers, hand phones , robots, electronic devices that can entertain us .
Finally, in my opinion using a technology without studying and experience will do the wrong result because we cant leave the technology work alone Without people.

siti hajar baharin said...

In an era of increasingly advanced, the technology has become a necessity for us .All we do today day involves even more in terms of technology communication.All form of communication should be done fast enough to not feel left in the modern world nowadays.Although technology has given us many benefits, there are disadvantages that affected man nowdays.People now more likely to communicate through the computer than in the store restaurant social and others. You can see here that technology kills tradition.But theres a good thing about technology, as an example, online shopping makes our life Easier Because it is cheap, fast, and easy-to-use.However, by using it excessively, that destroying our other body, at Certain Point When we are being away from civilization for too long, our socializing skills will collapse.We can not talk properly to other people need to be careful anymore.We with technologies and use prototypes Wisely Because anything that we do have THEIR own consequences.

Hi this is me Nassr,

Everything has the good side and the bad side. Technology has become an important and significant part of human life. For example in my country 10 years ago when I was at middle school I remember most of the times we spend our days without electricity. but for now and because of the good technology it's working for 24 hours 7.
That make us comfortable and our life has improved because of the advancing of the technology. imagine there are no planes in this world how can we communicate with each other, and how are we going to have developed life??
if it still using ships, and what? by the power of the wind ***(die)

and yes how do i receive your messages Mam ?? via email which used the technology of the era.

That was all on the advantages of the technology and there are uncountable examples. But,about the disadvantages it's as i said at the beginning there are to sides good and bad,,,so we need to balance both sides to get the real benefit of it.

Technological advancements, in all facets of life, are inevitable. From high-definition television sets to computers to streamlined manufacturing to even Smartphone with more added features than a normal phone with key pads, it's impossible to ignore what the last 10 years of innovation has brought us. And that lack of neglect is because me too have probably become a slave to technology
Technology is a man's best friend and to my point of view it will always be, however, it may not always be in a man's favor. Not all technology is ultimately for our benefit. is not that I’m against technology, actually I’m a fan of it too that is the reason why I’m taking IT course. But there is something in me that makes me think some aspects of life were better 10 or so years ago. for example if you can go to McDonald right now you will find a family having their Dinner but the father is on the laptop, mother is on the phone and kids playing with iPods nobody is talking to anyone, the word family has lost meaning . The number of people who have eye problems is increasing everyday, our bodies are not healthy because we play game on our phones, computers and many more we don’t have time for physical sports. There is also too much public accessibility to our personal information, we no longer have secrets, the rate of theft is growing each an every second, but perhaps it is our technology that is causing our downfall.

In conclusion what I can say is that technology benefit man in many ways and we should enjoy it while there is still time because I’m afraid it is replacing reality and it will bring earth to an end. Please don’t get Addicted to this social networks because they make us lose focus on our school work and we end up failing.

Amirul said...

When we try to look around, we can see that everything around us is related to technology. How did technology exist then? It's man who invented every technology that available right now. It doesn't exist by its own. Why man created technology? It's because man has limits in everyday's works. Man can get tired, and there are some works that man can't afford to do it without the help of technology. Technology provides convenience, brings a lot of benefits to man, and make man's life easier. However, the existence of technology sometimes can backfire, where it may harm the environment or other human beings, and man tends to become too reliant on technology. They seem cannot live without technology these days.

Technology is undoubtedly created to assist human, therefore, we as the creator of these technologies must be able to control it, and never ever let technology control us.

alrefaie ali said...

The gifts of technology has provided man’s life today is far easier and comfortable than his predecessors
has made our life easy and comfortable, healthy and enjoyable. It has made
transport and communication easier and faster .
technology should be used for the good benefits.
our scientists should come forward to promote society for the beneficial uses of their findings technology is always there to serve the society constructively or destructively.
It is we, human beings, who have to how to use technology.

FAHAD said...

Nowadays, technology invades our lives everywhere and every time. Where you go to you can see the effect of the technology even in sample thing like restaurants' menu. I saw one of the restaurants provide iPads devices for the customers with installed program showing restaurants' menu. Technology makes life simpler, and it produced many beneficial effects to the society and the human works. In contrast, other impacts of the technological growth have brought many complications and obstacles to our lives. However, the bad and good effects of technology depend completely on how the people deal with it and how they use it. The choice that people make in technologies is the main factor to make the selected technology positive or negative. These choices could be used to maintain, prolong, or terminate a life depend on the patient’s desire. In my opinion, I agree that technology has effects in our lives, but we should control ourselves not to misuse the technology and not overuse the technology. And try to overcome the bad habits generated following technological growth.

aminsahari said...

Technology is just an optional thing long time before. We never thought that technology is going to be.. and it turns to be our need today. Technology do support almost everything in our life. It eases our work, fasten our tasks, supports our decision making processes and many more.

Technology can become a good mechanism of supporting our daily life and it can turn into something devastating if we don't manage the technology available in a proper channel or way. Let us see one example respectively on the technology in our life.

Before modern technology is invented, we used to accomplish our tasks and doing them in manual and practical ways. Take computers as example. Before computer is invented, many tasks need to be done manually writing by hands. calculating numbers by fingers and others. By having computers, we can have automated and semi-automated works done easily without wasting our precious time and energy.

Never forget, this technology also can become our enemy if we don't use the technology invented in correct manner and ways. People tend to use this technology is such wrong way such as for committing cyber-crimes. We can see that the useful technology can turn into negative way.

What we should do is, appreciate the technology invented and use it for the good purposes and for our own benefits.

Hye pn. zue

between man and technology there's a lot of different but nowadays technology means everything to us. Even we want to calculate we need to use the technology, even we want to wash our car we use the technology, and very simple thing without key we cannot open the lock door right? Who invent it.? Human invent it but somehow human can't control the technology.
For the machine technology there's got a lot of improvement nowadays. Before we got dumb machine which does everything based on what we've program on it. But nowadays the artificial intelligence (AI) technology improved by make the machine think smartly. If you watch AI movie the story show what AI means and someday maybe machine also got emotion like us, human. It's not impossible because we had Asimo who invented by Honda. A very smart robot who can nearly do what human can do. We also had Siri on Apple (i-phone 4s) who can respond and learn based on the experience. Asimo and Siri is the next generation of smart technology, dumb part of steel become smart machine + part of coding and program become cool AI tech... The new era of smart machine with emotion who does everything just like human being is just a step away.
But back then, it'll be human who must control it, otherwise the world will end just like AI movie or Wall-e movie or terminator movie.

Alhumaidi,Meshari said...

In my point of view that the technology is good in our daily lives. A lot of people say that technology is destroying our lives and the current generation can not do any thing without technology but I see the opposite of that. The human mind is the foundation of the technology. This means that the development of the technology has come from the human development .And I see that technology improve the current generation when it comes to the way they think and how can they use any thing for their good in their life. in the other hand there are people who say the technology is effecting our life badly, I think any thing a double edged sword as well as the technology if we want to use it for the benefit of the world we will find that there is no limit to their uses for example advanced medical care and communication . and if we want use it badly we will find that ther's no limit .for example an industry of weapons and other stuff that can destroy the human life.

saleh alnahdi said...

The revolution of the technology greatly affected the man's life , when a day hardly passes without hearing an invention of a new machine technology , Technology and the changes it brings can have a very big effect on our lives. I believe that the person has the ability to make the technology either a curse or a mercy . I think that the biggest disadvantage that is currently happening is the global warming because In order to use the technology we must provide energy, and the more we consume the more energy we need ..

By reading this article,i am very sure that it should be much of the opinion by the readers.Perhaps we have to read up many resources about this topics via other websites so that we can make some conclusion about this issues accurately.

Well,in my opinion,of course every single thing,it must have the bad and good about it.So,it depends on ourselves on how to tackle it.Actually,we cant separate human and technology itself.They are in a bonding actually.Because without human,the technology cannot be expands itself,and so that to human,because without technology,we cant achieve what we have right now.Isn't it?

Maybe the main point that people arguing about this issues is actually about the full dependencies in technology.For sure,by depending too much on technology,we are actually facing some troubles that actually we don't see.By relying too much on technology,we are lowering down our ability actually.In one point,we can't even do such a simple matters in our life.For example,imagine we don't have calculator to make some calculations.Can we?

So,think about it.Perhaps it'll change up something in the way we are thinking.Thank you ;)

Turki ahmed said...

Technology is general, has become a very important aspect of human life. As if it seems that people worldwide can no longer relay on anything other than technology and gadgets. If we look around us we will be able to recognise at least one or two technology related gadgets. I personally don't think its a bad thing to be in an era where technology could actually do stuff instead of man power, in fact, the work that we live in today could be more slower in terms of achievements if there was no advanced technological improvement.

But, when the machine replaces the human this is where people should worry. Even though machines are far more advances and faster in "some" aspects than the human brain, but one must not forget that the human brain is the inventor of the machine and technology.

Another worrying point, is that machines and technology are a double edged sword.
It's purpose could defined by the beholder.
If these were to be used for the destruction of man kind rather than assisting them in their daily lives, then what is the purpose of having them made at the first place.

Finally, as much helpful the modren technology today is, it should be used wisely and considerabley, from what we can see in modern warfare, these things should be used responsibly and for their main reason of invention.
To help mankind throughout their daily lives rather than taking theirs.

Faisal Alasiri said...

well, I love Facebook, Myspace, YouTube, Google, and so on.Technology is wonderful, and it brought so many positives into today's world. Email for example! For free, I can contact anyone in the entire world at any time. Take a second to think about that.Amazing!
Don't forget the glory of Skype. Video chatting? For free?! YES.
but I think sometimes people take technology a bit too far. Some people have grown so dependant on technology that they've lost basic human common sense.

Being a fan of technology myself, I can't really point to any technology subgroup as ignoring any aspect of technological chain is unacceptable as they are all overlapping each other. As much as I hate even bringing "Facebook" into this valued topic, I must admit that progressive integration of internet applications in the noted "media" has affected the companies decision making and marketing strategies and also caused breakthroughs in web application development, there are variety of these applications available with various usability.

Before I finish I would like to add that like many others, I have a wide perception of technology as I see it bound with the science. As without science and exploration there wouldn't be any other alternative to innovate and improve quality of our lives.

We will never be enough to talk about technology. Technology is growing bigger and bigger every day. Who can tell since when the process of technology had started? How technology started? From the time when human still live in a cave, they already create weapon such as knives to go hunting buy just using a sharp rock. And it keep evolve until today we have a beautiful, sharp and light knives. Technology comes when man desperately wants to solve their problem. Yes, when people are in a desperate situation, they will try and do anything until them success. For the people that wrongly use the technology, it also because of the desperation to get something. That is bad to use technology for a bad thing but, this also one of the reasons for the technology to keep growing. There will never have a perfect thing but there will always have an improvement. So, please just don't lose our hope for technology and man to getting better and much better.

yes, yes and yes........

it's true that technology have been helping mankind in many ways by provifing the conviniences in daily lives.

But as for the opinion that technology can also can be considered as a 'Curse'[because of some use it as a lethal weapon]-in the end, such a person need to consider such act themselves and everyone that can help them avoid doing such act itself. Some people might consider this post is like pushing that problem to certain people but actually i want to say that everyone should be helping each other since technology also have been helping everyone to know each other no matter how far is our distant between us

Assalamualaikum Pn. Zue.

For me, everything has their pros and cons. This law is inevitably applies to the technology too.

For an instance, in communication world, Blackberry has become a phenomena to the world. By using this smartphone, we can now communicate effortlessly. But with the promising advantages, there's come the truth. This small device actually making the far closer, making the close far apart. This is true when using the Blackberry Messenger in the Blackberry, we can communicate to the people even on the other side of the world as easy at the fingertip but the people really in front of us, the real people is being neglected. We are too keen on the device such that we forgot the people around us, sometime, this can lead to be less active lifestyle.

Nevertheless, the technology has proven its ground. Without technology, we could not have what we have today. Just we need to bear in mind that, everything has to be utilized moderately. It our job not to rely 100% on technology on something we can do on our own. :D

On last few centuries people were doing chores manually but nowadays more and more task have become automated. The most usual tasks are washing clothes by hand have been replaced by washing machine, cutting grass using grasscutter machine and cleaning by using automatic vacuum cleaner.

There are both advantages and disadvantages of the technology. First of all, we don't need to perform repetitive task and contribute the extra time for other task. Other than that, older people or disabled people will appreciate the such automated invention. These machine are very helpful and eases their burden.

For the disadvantages, due to this type of technology most of the people becomes lazy and tend to spend their pleasure time by watching television or playing video games. Furthermore, this leads to addiction towards unhealthy lifestyle. Some of them would not learn to do these task if everything has been automated. They would not think of what will happen in case there is power outage.

In conclusion, automated technology does save our energy and time but it also makes a human being to be lazy and unhealthy if they tend to depend too much on this technology.

Hello Pn Zue
Technology is very important thing in our life. Technology can help people but, technology also can makes people lazy. There's a lot of activity that doesnt require technology instead of passion
outdoor activity. Mostly man still loves activity outdoor. Technology actually can ease our daily life , such as smartphone, it can access internet all the time. We also can do transaction with maybank2u, pay bills and whatnot by technology.

It is indeed true that the topic "man and technology" is non exhaustive. Just look around you. Almost everything surrounding you is a form of technology. Technology spans from the simple toys that children play with to sophisticated technological advancements such as computer aided surgical robots. It cannot be denied technology has a significant effect on our lives and it is a major factor in sculpting our life style. For an example, there is no geographical boundaries which separates people who live in different countries. Communication has developed into a medium which gives access to the millions of people all around the globe. Technological advancements are improved day to day and the possibilities are infinite. The end of the road is yet to be seen.

In my opinion, technology is like a burning torch. Hold it upwards, it emits light but hold it downwards, you get burned. Technology brings about many advantages and benefits but if overused or misused,then you are deemed to face the unpleasant consequences.

As an individual, we should be responsible in how we apply technology in our life. We should keep in mind that technology is makes our life easier but it should not be misused. With these thoughts in mind, all of us will enjoy the various benefits that technology can provide.

Hi Puan Zue,

I'm so sorry for the late post hope you don't mind.

Man and technology can never be apart as you can see nowadays there is a lot of new technology been introduce to man. it been wider from time to time. Today we heard about this and tommorow something new are been release. Its good but man should not enslave themselves too much into technology. Technology yes itself make our day life easier but it also can make ourself suffer because its lead us to unhealthy lifestyle and make us become so lazy also we will lose quality time with family and friends.

So man have to keep in their mind, use the technology wisely don't let it ruin and control our life.
