Some people say television contributes more than other modern inventions to the quality of life of ordinary people. Do you agree or disagree?
Over the last 100 years many great inventions have been taken place which make
ourlife easier. But some inventions have become an indispensable part of ourlife (or: part of our lives). It is true that the television is a very important modern invention but it is disagreed that it contributes more than other modern inventions. It is believed that modern inventions such as the internet, computers, mobile phones, iPhones and iPads contribute more to everyday life ascompared to the television and they also improve the quality of life of the common people.
First, the most popular modern inventions are the internet and computers. It is strongly believed that the internet and computers are far more beneficial than TV. For example due to the internet and computers people now have access to millions of information resources of the world. They do not have to watch unnecessary advertisements. They can talk or chat with their friends or relatives who are living far from them. People can also pay their outstanding bills from home by using the internet. They can, moreover, make long distance calls at cheap rates. Computers are also widely used in manufacturing industries, for example to operate machines and robots etc.
Second, the most important invention which is very much essential for everyday life is the mobile phone. Over the last couple of months the use of mobile phones have been increased very much. Now every 4 out of 5 people are using mobile phones. Due to the mobile phone people can interact with each other whether they are inside the city or outside they can talk and share their thoughts. Furthermore, new types of the mobile phones which are called iPhones are also very popular and widely used, especially by business people as well as students. They contain lots of features such as GPS, chatting, VOIP etc.
Finally, based on the above example it is proved that the TV did not make much of a contribution towards a better quality of life of ordinary people
ascompared to the other inventions such as internet, computer and iPhones.
