Information technology in day to day life

Information technology has become an indispensible part of modern life. It is easily accessible due to the computers.

Man's quality of life is improved with the development in literacy. Internet has brought each and every info to the door. Students can make connections with the world sitting at the computer desk.

In making quality products computers are widely used in factories. Not governed by emotions computers bring perfection in measuring, adding, mixing and making everything that is made in factories.

Positive and negative environmental effects of computer technology

Computer technology has positive and negative effects concerned with the environment.

Reading a paper book has become obsolete in the fast modern life. This has reduced felling and cutting off trees to make paper. In a way e-books are good for the environment. But e-waste is a threat to the environment. Disposing a single computer that contains 2kg of lead and other toxic elements is difficult. UN's Environment Programme is alarmed by the pollution caused in Africa, Asia and south America in the disposal of computers.

With the help of the same computer technology man has to find out an environmental way of disposing computers.

Computer technology through email reduces the need to travel and send a message which saves time but use up electricity which is generated mostly from non-renewable resources.
