asks performed, helps in complex calculations, does work incredibly faster than a human can, does work with great “accuracy”, facilitates “storage” of different kinds of files and information on the computer etc (Vogt, 2014, pp. 1).
Other advantages include its usability, that is, it is now used in modern businesses for e-commerce, it is used in classrooms as a tutor, it provides an immense amount of information with the help of internet, it facilitates communication without having to meet the other party face to face etc. The cons of computer technology basically stem from the fact that it is not independent on its own, it does need some human interaction and intervention. The “high cost” of purchasing the computer technology, that is, various items that come with it such as modems and internet connection, may also be seen as a con (Vogt, 2014, pp. 1). Computers may breakdown, and this will affect the smooth functioning of business enterprises or educational institutions alike. Furthermore, the growing addiction of humans, especially children to computer technology is a concerning factor. It also puts several people out of jobs, for instance, the closing of book stores, since most books are bought and even read on computer technology such as with Kindle.
