It is hard for us to imagine what kind of life we will live without computers. Nowadays people are using computers to do almost everything for them. on the one hand, the use of computers greatly speeds up our work's efficiency,makes ourlife more comfortable and convenience; on the other hand, it also has a lot of drawbacks,. for instance, too much relying on computers makes people lazy and results in less job opportunities. what is your opinoin about the use of computers in our daily life? Should people feel suspicious of the benefits of computers?

Hello,shenzhouplaza ,computers have allowed us to do many things faster and efficiently,withput computer,we will be very inconvinient,we may use computers to store data which can be sorted out in a short time,without computer,it will be a tedious task to sort out information manually. But may be we have relied to much on computer,in case the system is downed,we will left stranded in that situation.

Good comment, Easy888. You have discussed the issue from both sides. If the system which controls some vital departments such as nuclear weapon console down,what is the result?
