Topic 1: Whether or not you think new technology such as cellphones, computers, and DVDs benefit our society.
With the development of our modernised society, every twenty minutes there comes a new technology [Do not say anything you can't back up with a reference, particularly in an academic paper. You should quote your source for the "twenty minutes" comment]. It gives us a lot of opportunities to raise our living standard and to have more convenient communication. Therefore, everyone has become more and more reliant on new technology (such as cellphones, computers and DVD's) because of its huge benefits.
First of all, new technology has brought to us better entertainment [Possibly, your 1st, and most important item, should be access to knowledge and information]. For instance, people can not only watch movies on TV but in computer and DVD player as well. The scenario where you have to wait in line for hours for a movie ticket is now in the past. Instead, all you need is a computer then enjoy yourself at home watching your most anticipated blockbuster. And [Try not to begin sentences with words (conjunctions) like "and"] hoping for your favorite song to be broadcast on MTV just makes no sense because it can be played repeatedly by CD players. Besides, computer games are also a source of relaxation, which help improve English skills and increase personal creativity. Apparently, without such technology ["those" expects "technology" to be in the plural. Such doesn't], people would ["without" introduces a conditional element that looks for "would"] be bored roundly clicking the TV remote.
Secondly, cellphones and computers give more convenient communication. They allow people to contact people who are far away in just a blink of the eye. As a result, many profitable contracts are signed without having to meet but with the help of new technology. In addition to this, if it were not for the development of hi-technology, many companies would not widely advertise their products, which might lead to profit loss. Therefore, it is crucial we adapt new technology in our society.
Some argue that using new technology makes people lazier or affect our health [I would not recommend bringing up the opposing argument unless you "shoot it down". Leave that to the "opposition"]. However, I see that its benefits outweigh its disadvantages. By just one click, technology will provide us with a wide range of information. So you do not have to stay for hours in the library searching for your paperterm document. In this information era, new technology is really a time-saving tool that leads to the effectiveness of our work.
To conclude, with the mentioned benefits, I beleive that the advantages of new technology are [advantages "are" not "is"] undeniable. Despite this fact, people should also learn how to handle to make the best use of it.
Hope this helps
