Computers have replaced Man

View
Computer are a boon to mankind. They do all the hard work while we lounge in the sunshine. They calculate answers in seconds which takes us minutes or hours even. Through computers, we can send e-mails, pictures,etc instantly. You don't have to wait for days for a message to reach it's destination. We can talk with our relatives who live far away through computers. We can video call them. The can actually be present at a function without travelling thousands of miles. Computerization has saved so much paper ! Documents don't necessarily have to be on a hard copy. Information of Ten thousands of paper can be stored on a single Pen drive. Information on any subject can be obtained with the click of a mouse. It is the wish-fulfilling tree of knowledge.
Counter-view
Computers have many disadvantages. There is unemployment because of computers. There is no need of a post man since e-mail was invented. Post men have lost their jobs which was a source of income for the whole family. Information stored on the computer can be destroyed with a single virus. Moreover, it can be hacked by strangers and used. What is the use of learning Mathematics if you are going to use a calculator...? What is the use of teachers if you can get the same information off the Internet ?
