How has technology helped you? Has it improved your life made it worse? The solution is both. Technology has both harmed and assisted us. It has helped us by developing new things for us to take advantage of and continues to improve such things, which helps us with our everyday life.

Before the advancements in technology today, it was very hard to communicate with others. When you wished to send a message to someone you had to write a letter, wait for the individual to get it, and then wait weeks until another letter got back to you.

These messages were sent in code form and took seconds to send from 1 building to the other. After, In 1876 the telephone was created enabling people to speak through a device on the wall and speak to someone in a different vicinity. To even further develop communication, we used technology to invent the cell phone. A phone you could carry with you wherever you went and use to call people. Cell phones used to be the size of a brick, they had a large keypad, antennas- the signal didn't go as far, and a significant battery pack which didn't last long before it had to be charged. Now from the aid of technology we have cell phones the size of our hands, can call any place in the world, internet capabilities, touch screen capabilities, and some even have cameras. We can do other things than just talk too. We can send instant messages called text messages,.
