Technology Essay, Research Paper
How has technology changed? It has changed drastically
since I was a child. I am talking about computers mainly.
The first computer that my family bought was an IBM P/S 1.
It was about nine years ago, the price was over two thousand
dollars. Today you can buy a good p.c. for well under one
thousand. The price of pc s dropped as the technology grew.
Also a new p.c. entered, it is the laptop. A miniature p.c.
with the same capabilities. If you need help on any thing
you can buy a new software program for about twenty bucks.
You can get help on any thing from medical problems to
taxes. Floppy disks were replaced by 3 1/2 disks, now
compact disks have replaced them. Now a new p.c. is outdated
within 6 months of its production.

over the country have computers. Schools use computers for

computers that the school has connected to the internet to
get information for reports. Some schools have electronic
libraries that you can access through computers. Computers
are used to teach classes now from anywhere as long as you
are connected to the internet. You can take college classes
from your home. In high school, there are computer labs that
you can use to type a report. There are classes that you
take on computers. Like me, I am taking Microworks. It is a
class that teaches you how to use Windows 95. I use Windows
98 on my computer. I already know how to use 95 and am
learning how to use 98 at home. But I am learning a few
things about 95 that I did not know. After you are finished
writing a story. You go to the computer lab to type it. Last
year for english i spent one to two days there every two
weeks. In college it is recommended that you have. A
computer with a word processor in it. So I would say that
computers have definitely changed school, and the way we
Work, computers also have changed the way we work, and
the work that we do. At factories, Navistar for example uses
computers. They build trucks, like the big semi s. They use
them for running the line that the trucks move on while
workers add parts.machine, robots
