Time by the Computer

Computers are major technological breakthrough of the twentieth century. It is said that dog is the best man’s friend. But in these days we are able to paraphrase this expression: computer is the best man’s friend. Computer can be our friend or enemy; it can make our life easier or destroy it.

I have a computer as well. I need my computer for doing my homework or just for spending my free time. I use programs such uss Microsoft Word, Excel, Win amp, Nero and so on. I spend few hours a day working on a computer. But sometimes (if I have a lot of to do) I spend almost all day working on a computer. If I have free time, sometimes I spend it playing computer games. But it isn’t very often. My favorite computer games are the following: X, X, X and others.

It is interesting question about advantages and disadvantages of having a computer at hoome or at school.

Finally, the most persuasive argument against the using computers is that more and more are done by computers and less are done by people. That means that not only unemployment is increasing, but people become lazier not even to do anything, but to think as well.

However, the advantages of computers are numerous, such us undeniable educational benefits, especially for children. School subjects become more interesting when they are presented on a computer screen. Moreover, computers can be fun with a seemingly endless variety of games which can be played on computers. In addition, computers arre valuable to any business, making life easier and saving time by being capable of storing and retrieving vast amounts of information at the touch of button. Furthermore, personal can see as the using of computers increases powers of concentration.

To sum it up, I must say that computer is a thing, which helps us to do our life much easier. So it means that we shouldn’t make it more important than our life or friends.
