Let’s talk about science and modem technologies.

What role does science play in our life?

We live in the age of science and technology. The life of every one of us highly depends on the scientific inventions and modem technologies. Science has changed the lives of people to a great extent. It has made life easy, simple and fast. In the new era, the science development has become a necessity to finish the era of bullock cart and bring the trend of motorized vehicles. Sci­ence and technologies have been implemented to every aspect of moderniza­tion in every nation. Modem gadgets have been introduced to every walk of life and have solved many problems in such sectors as medicine, education, infrastructure, electricity, aviation, information technology and other fields.

Some examples of the advancement in the technologies are establishment of railway system, metro system, railway reservation system, super computers, mobiles, smart phones, online access of people in almost every area, etc.

The technological revolutions of the 21st century are emerging from en­tirely new sectors, based on micro-processors, tele-communications, bio­technology and nano-technology. Products are transforming business prac­tices across the economy, as well as the lives of all who have access to their effects. The most remarkable breakthroughs will come from the interaction of insights and applications arising when these technologies converge.

But science and technology also have a negative side which affects hu­man lives. If we look around the environment, most places are crowded and polluted due to the development of large buildings, factories and plants, which are all hazardous to our health.

Do you use many gadgets and devices at home?

Yes, I do. In frequent use is a modem TV, a microwave, an oven, a lap­top, an I-pad and a mobile. In my opinion new gadgets make our life easier. For example, everybody owns at least a basic mobile phone today. What makes it easy to use is its user-friendly nature, small size and its numerous attractive features. However, people are always eager to replace their mobile phones with the latest models having more advanced features. As the technol­ogy is scaling new heights, mobile phones are becoming cheaper and cheap­er and the customer is getting more for less. A great way of amusing yourself is by playing games on your mobile phone. If you want to store your precious moments, you can use its video recording feature. Mobile phones can be­come expressions of who we are by getting mobile ringtones, wallpapers, which turn your phone into a unique device.

People are becoming more dependent on high-tech devices more than reading books. Is it good or bad?

Sure in reasonable limits and with definite targets it is good. We can’t imagine our life today without the Internet. With the help of modem devices I have got an opportunity to access news, documents, images, sounds, video and games, to make friends, to book tickets and to purchase different things online. There are a lot of different sites for students, gardeners, businessmen, engineers, for people who are fond of music, cinema, theatre, sports and even for disabled people. What is more, the Internet has revolutionized the way people communicate. Sending electronic text messages is much faster and easier than writing letters. People use e-mail to stay in touch with friends worldwide. The only thing is not to go crazy about constant buying new brand devices though the high-tech world is developing so fast.
