Human Happiness It is hard to imagine anyone not having heard of a computer and the Internet especially in a modern society.
Nowadays, it is common to see a computer in every household and place of business. This advancement in technology has improved the way of life by simplifying tasks that once were manually managed. Today, children are being raised with computers and the Internet prevalent in their lives which has allowed them to take advantage of many benefits. These benefits are the result of the human pursuit of happiness.Three influential ways that computers and the Internet promote happiness is through its ability to provide rapid worldwide information, job simplicity, and entertainment. An influential way that computers and the Internet promote happiness is through the ability to provide rapid worldwide information. One way people use the Internet is to get the daily news.
Newspapers and magazines have suffered recently as more people use the Internet because it is much faster. Also, in sports, people use online websites to keep track of their team’s rankings.Similarly, the Internet provides a vast amount of information; as much as a library.
But it is habitually used more now because it is so easy. For example, research can be done through the Internet immediately without going to a library and if the website is a reliable source, the research can also be approved on its accuracy. No wonder most people consider using this advanced technology because of its ability to meet their needs quickly. Almost as important, tourists gather information through the Internet’s ability of providing detailed worldwide geography of countries.For instance, before computers and the Internet were prevalent, people essentially had to travel to their vacation to see the actual environment of the place. But now with the Internet’s help, photographs of country’s sites are available online for people to see. Using computers and the Internet for information is a beginning for promoting happiness.
Another influential way that computers and the Internet promote happiness is through the ability to provide job simplicity. Software programs make work simpler for businesses.Examples of software programs that provide simplicity are the full version of Microsoft Office and AutoCAD. The two software programs make work uncomplicated by having the ability to save any type of file and duplicating it indefinitely. With such advantages, people are more efficient and do not need to go back to the old, time-consuming style of doing similar tasks by hand.
Students in modern society despise going to school early in the morning every day. They feel that this routine gets old quick. But with online schooling, students enjoy sleeping in and can save their energy for other responsibilities.
With online courses, they can have their own class in their bedroom via the Internet. Likewise, communication used to be available through phones, fax, and letters before computers were widespread. Using computers and Internet services, people can transfer communication by e-mail, video cameras, chat rooms, and social networking websites.
These services allow us to communicate with school, work and family instantly. Although simplifying work is efficient through computers and the Internet, it is also efficient to use the technology for entertainment.Modern computers have offered entertainment options since they were manufactured. Using a computer for entertainment is well worth the time because of the amusement it brings. For example, children could spend time learning by playing educational video game on the computer. Also, when people cannot play outdoors, computers and the Internet are great tools for entertainment.
With this technology, a person can enjoy listening to music, watching online videos, and even live TV. One can also have enjoyment by meeting new people and staying together through social websites like Twitter, MySpace, and Facebook.Using computers and the Internet for a pastime is enjoyable and promotes happiness.
Even though computers and the Internet can have drawbacks, the advantages they provide are higher and they promote happiness through contributions to peoples’ lives. One could be so focused on the computers’ contributions that one could lose acknowledgement of the purpose of those advantages. It is important to maintain balance while using this technology, especially with today’s infinite Internet content. It is also extremely important for the public to emember that computers and the Internet are available now for almost anything. Computers and the Internet provide happiness to users. For this basis, they are not designed to control one’s life but instead they help make worldwide information, job simplicity, and entertainment faster and easier.
