You can get so many things done with just a tap of a finger. You could communicate faster and be on the go at the same time. Laptops have changed America just as much. Laptops have changed America by it making businesses more successful and more organized. It has also made lives in America better because they have more ways than ever to communicate better.
The study showed “sophisticated algorithmic search engines, has made accessing information as easy as lifting a finger. No longer do we have to make costly efforts to find the things we want.” (Google Effects on Memory: Cognitive Consequences of Having Information at Our Fingertips, Pg.) “The four studies found that when people are faced with difficult questions, people are primed to think about computers.” (Google Effects on Memory: Cognitive Consequences of Having Information at Our Fingertips Pg.) This is proving the point Socrates made in his quote “Writing down their thoughts and reading the thoughts of others had written down, they become less dependent on the contents of their own memory.” (The Shallows, Pg. 173).
Throughout the course of history, technology has played a substantial role in the development of cities. Technology ultimately made everything more efficient. As seen in Jackson’s text Crabgrass Frontier, Jackson talks about the impact that technology had on the age of subdivision. Houses were improved after the war, and population increased. With the increase of population, more minds were put into the field of technology.
People tend to find themselves reading tweets instead of articles now. The internet has made it so much easier to find new information, if only we wouldn 't get so sidetracked. There is no reason to get rid of the use of technology, but we need to find a way for us to discipline ourselves to only use it for our
He took a liking to this because he already knew about faces in phones, sleep deprivation, and our obsessive behavior with technology. In the article he says ….“For the past 30+ years, as I have studied the "psychology of technology" I have always taken a strongly positive view about the impact it has on our culture and all of my writing has been in service of seeing how we can make the most of these marvelous inventions. From the beginnings of the Internet, to the rapid rise of the WWW, laptops, smartphones, tablets and more, we now have the world at our fingertips whenever we want and wherever we might find ourselves.”..... He continues on to say ….“Lately, however, I have witnessed something that profoundly troubles me. WE CAN 'T SEEM TO KEEP OUR FACES OUT OF OUR SMARTPHONES FOR EVEN A MINUTE OR TWO.”.....
Likewise, some things discover during the Renaissance period, have also helped in terms of technology. One example would be the discovery of the printing press. Something that has not only helped people gain easy access to literature and other works of science besides; it has also helped in the production of books. As move into an era of technological advancement, the invention and elements of the renaissance continue to play a significant role in today’s society. Just like Gutenberg sought out to make printing and distribution of literature accessible to much of Europe, so does the inventions today seek to bring forth a rebirth in science, arts, and technology.
The human race has got to see some of the top best inventions during the 20th century, for example- the radio, the airplane, nuclear power, automobile, and the one that has by far made human life easy and efficient is the computer. The invention of the computer has led to some of the most significant concepts, ideas, and inventions that eventually led to the evolution of human life. And the major ones are, the internet, long distance communication, easy and safe research and much more! The computer was invented by Charles Babbage, an English mechanical engineer, and polymath who is also titled as the “father of computers”. He invented the first fully operating computer in the early 19th century.

After several engineering attempts in the mid 1970s Apple began work on a PC that would become the largest selling computer in the world, the Apple II (Haven 291-293). Just as the computer and music industries changed their products to advance technology and improve portability, the implementation of the catalytic converter, during the 1970s, sought to provide a cleaner, more environmentally friendly way to reduce hazardous auto emissions. A catalytic converter converts toxic auto pollutants in the exhaust gas to less toxic levels of pollutants
In the 70s, many new inventions were in being created. This included new electronics, transportation systems, and other items that are now considered essential to our everyday lives. “The 1970s were a decade of impressive technological invention and development with the first microprocessors, calculators and video games strutting onto the scene oozing cool,” (“7 Technologies to Thank” 2010). Some of these inventions included Post-it Notes made by Arthur Fry, the Rubiks Cube made by Ernie Rubik, Floppy Discs, and the Hacky Sack. Today we still use many objects that were made in the same time period such as digital cameras, pocket calculators, bar codes, the email, roller blades, and VCRs.
It is regarded to by many as the greatest invention of all time. However, the internet has truly malformed the way we think. This may not seem like a big deal, but we are not conscious of the implications while exploring the internet. Media, especially can have people outraged by their short depictions of events because the majority of people are easily influenced due to the lack of reading and thought. The internet is obviously not all bad, it has revolutionized the way people connect and share information that is unparalleled by anything before it.
