What are the advantages and disadvantages of Technology and Invention?

Disadvantages and Advantages of technology. Well you can't really go on one side since everyone has their own point of view, but here are some advantages to technology, with technology you can do work more efficiently, employment is better because new jobs are coming up because of the new technology, accessing to information is easy, it is more organized an example is if you write a essay on paper you can lose it very easily but if you type it up in MS word it can be saved on your computer or a USB stick, and the last advantage i can think of is downloading you can get any song or music video for free instead of buying it. There are disadvantage as well to this, jobs that were done by hand will be all gone, developing countries can't afford all the advanced technology so people from there try to settle in a developed country it will be hard for them to get a job since they will have to learn new skills like how to work a computer, use up a lot of energy, ergonomics can be a factor as well, can make you lazy, new forms of entertainment, such as video games and internet access could have possible social effects on areas such as academic performance, and you would have less conversations face to face because of e-mail or the phone, or text messages, msn, facebook. These are all the advantages and disadvantages of technology, but really, its what your point of view is.
