041708-google-integration-webinar-121189We live in the
age of technology. We commute by automobiles and airplanes and communicate by
emails and mobiles. The media and the Internet provide us the latest
information from all over the world. Movies filled with hi-tech special effects
entertain us. Air conditioners and room heaters keep our life comfortable
despite climatic inconveniences. Technology has changed almost every of our
lives. Of course, technology may have concerns about the pollution and
environmental problems. But overall most people feel that technology has
benefited us immensely. Therefore let us go deeper to analyze that modern
technology has increase material wealth, but not happiness on our society:

Firstly, modern
technology makes people's life boring, after working time people often sitting
by their computer to play games or reading some information on internet. That
means they do not refresh their mind and by accident they turn their own into
slave of modern technology. It can make life better but it can cause you
disease or stressed also.

Second, modern
technology has improved communication technology between cultures. With modern
communication technology such as TVs, phones and computer, internet, you can
see what people at the other end of the world is doing, but it can cause us
some problem when speak through the phone a lot you will feel not better or
headache cause by radioactive and your eye also have problem if you watch TV
many hour in a day. And with a modern
car, motor and airplane, we can travel to everywhere of the world. This will
help us to know the other culture of the world, and you will learn to
appreciate the cultural difference of people from different part of the earth.
These vehicle make you easily, but actually many accident has happen every day
by ridding car, motor…Example in Cambodia Traffic accident happen and
4.7 people die in accidents each day, according to a report by the Cambodian
government and Handi cap International Belgium an NGO in Phnom Penh in (2009).

modern technologies also make life easily by only controlled machine. Such as
tractor, copy machine….It can make your work faster and easily, but sometime it
can be error and your work will prohibit or damage. On the other hand, it will
make you unhappy and pay with repairing it.

conclusion, for the reasons above I think that modern technology can't decide
the happiness, it can provide people living standard but not happiness.
