  Advantages and Disadvantages of Technology   In today's world, where just about everything is more convenient and accessible due to advances in technology across almost all sectors, it may seem as though it's a misnomer to even mention any disadvantages of technological advances. However, despite how far technology has taen humans and no matter how convenient it may mae things, there are some disadvantages accompanying this level of access.Today, we can!t imagine ourselves without technological advances such as cars, microwaves, cell phones, computers, and televisions. However, technology won!t stop here, but develop further. As technology develops, there are not only advantages, but disadvantages from them. A few advantages of upgraded technology are that one can save time and money and life will be made easier as a result of not having to do all the hard labor. In contrast, the disadvantages of upgraded technology are that people will loose their jobs to machines that will do the wor for them. In addition, machines and robots are too comple for most people to use.I personally would want a developed world with advanced technologies. The following are the reasons why I do want a more advanced world with advanced technologies. #y major reason is because when you have advanced technologies, life is much easier as robots and machines would tae over your daily life chores. $or e ample, daily life chores might be serving your breafast, cutting your lawn, or cleaning your room. %ith robots and machines doing one!s chores one has time to rela . Another reason is because unlie humans, robots and machines do not mae mistaes when programmed correctly. They always accomplish tass perfectly so you won!t have to worry about maing a mistae and getting trouble.&ther reasons why I want advanced technologies are because they save a great deal of time and money. $or e ample, if you are a wealthy man who always had trouble employing talented maids, you can buy a cleaning robot and use it for the rest of your  life. Therefore, you won!t have to use all your time employing talented maids. Also, you will save a lot of money from not having to pay servants. Another e ample of benefits from advanced technology is that if there are new, developed vehicles that will transport  people to anywhere rapidly, so that one would not need to spend all those boring, long hours in an airplane to try to get to another country, which will save much time not only on long travels but also on daily commutes. As there are so many advantages from highly developed technology, there also is a great deal of disadvantages from them. &ne disadvantage is that as technology develops, robots and machines will tae over many jobs and people will loose their jobs by contrast. As  people loose their jobs, they will have hard time getting money which would mae it hard for them to continue to meet living e penses. #oreover, as people use less money the economy would be difficult to control and especially if it is a country as large as the nited (tates, the problem will influence the world greatly.Another disadvantage of highly developed technology is that machines and robots are comple . It is hard to activate all the machines you have unless you can multitas. Thin about it, if most people have trouble on computers and almost all of us don!t now the actual limit of computers! abilities, how will us, normal people, wor with all the robots and machines) #oreover, just lie computers, robots and machines will easily brea and most time you won!t now how to fi them and one will have to call someone to fi them. *eople will loose their temper over this and it will create a large e pense to repair them.+ven as there are as many advantages ad disadvantages of technology, I personally wish a more advanced world with great technologies. It would be so cool to wor out all the complicated machines and robots. Don!t you thin it will be awesome to press just a few complicated buttons than do the labor yourself) In the future it would be more about  using your brain and being intelligent than doing the hard labor yourself.
