No, I do not agree. Sure, technology nowadays has improved the world in many ways, is constantly changing the world and has definitely become influential in our lives. It has improved the world by leaps and bounds, and has helped people in various ways. Diseases that were once a threat to the human community are now curable and can be treated,we live longer and more healthier lives thanks to technology. It brings us the convenience of traveling form one place to the other faster than before. Now, we have aircraft that can make journey shorter. However, people are now too dependent on technology. We now make friends and interact with each other through social networking sites or through messaging instead of communicating in real life. Young children in the past used to go outside and play all the time, but now, the new generation of children stay glued to their computer screens, iPhones and game consoles. Like how the movie 'WALL-E' depicted, technology has made us forget human values. It portrays how the people in the future might behave if we had such sophisticated technology. We'll become fat and ride around in chairs instead of walking. People should not be so dependent on technology. If technology were to fail one day, the world would be thrown into chaos. No bank, no radio, no computer, no telephone, no transport and dangerous weapons like atomic bombs and missiles would be compromised. To conclude, i do not agree that technology is more of a boon than a bane.
