I think that having the latest technology is a want not a need. I do think that in this day and time everyone does need some way to stay in contact with others and a way to do research if needed. I also wonder how we are going to stay up with the latest technology if they are coming up with new things everyday. So in so since technology is a need. Americans need ways to stay connected with the news and friends. That way maybe we can make our carbon foot print a little better. For example we can car pool and not waste gas going somewhere that is closed. We can find can use our technology to find places closer to where we are and so many other examples. I do think that we do need technology but i do not think that we need the latest technology. To some it all up technology is a need but the latest technology is a want.

Hi! I’m Greta from Lithuania :) I use my phone and computer every day… I personally believe that latest technology is a want and I completely agree with you, Maddi :) In my opinion, I think that there is no reason to go out and buy the newest model just because it’s new. Of course new technology like cell phones or computers makes our life easier, not having this technology would be hard to do, but I think, we can use them less, than we use mostly.
I believe that in today’s ever-growing world, technology is needed to thrive. But in saying that, I also believe that having all of these things, and upgrading every few months is a bit ridiculous. Once the entire world gets onboard with the technology train, we could lower our carbon footprint as a whole by the thousands. It would be beneficial for us to have this new way of life, and a new era of communication and needs. Though I think this, I am not saying that having such technologies like, the latest computer or cellphone will always be the answer to your problems. I just believe that as things get to grow and expand in knowledge, we are going to need technology to live. So honestly, I believe that technology is considered both a want and a need. We need it to begin our journey as an Earth to become the more defined and savvy than we are. But it is also a want because people tend to only want these new technologies to look cool, or talk to friends. Which is kind of counterproductive, because of all technologies can do.
In todays world I think everyone wants to have the lasted technology. I do not think anyone needs the things to make them happy but they are nice things to have. But I do think technology is an important thing to have. I do think having a phone is important but having the newest piece of technology is not necessary. You can do many things with technology like communicate with others, help with research, and learn things that are going on in the world. So I do not think that have technology is unimportant but we do not need to buy everything that looks cool that we want all of the time. We need to work on buying things that we need or when things start to get old.
I believe that the desire of having the latest technology is more of a want rather than that of a need. Having the latest technology is not a necessary factory to ensure a person’s survival. Like in the case of cell phones and other devices, we do not need to have the newest model of a phone all you truly need your phone to do is call people and text others. You may call or text someone to just keep in contact or maybe in the case of an emergency. Using a phone for anything else is truly just a perk that keeps the user entertained but those apps and other perks are not needed for someone to survive. Thats one problem with our society today, we are always mixing up our wants and desires with our needs and necessities. I can admit i am guilty of this but maybe one day we all will come to appreciate and realize the things we want and need in life.
Wanting to have the latest technology is a want in my opinion. Even though I do get the latest technology that is available, I really do not need it for me to survive or be happy. I usually get a new cell phone about every 2 or 3 years but it depends on how well my current phone holds up over that time. I didn’t really need the new model of the iPhone, but I got it for Christmas so I’m not going to complain. I don’t really think the use of technology such as cell phones and mp3 players have an environmental impact. If you are addicted just try to take time away from using the technology every day and increase the amount over time until you only use technology when needed.
I think that new technology is mostly a want not a need. Generally a common person doesn’t need the latest technology to live their life. Old technologies get the job done but might not be as nice or convenient as new items. I think there is a need for new technology if your job depends on it, especially for communication purposes. It’s important to have new technology in business because it can helps companies be the best they can. With the expansion of technology there is also a reduction in paper and waiting time, which makes sharing things much easier. If companies and people utilize these programs and devices their work is more efficient and rewarding.
Hello there, my name is jack! I believe to succeed in life, especially in America, you need technology. You also need the most advanced technology so you can be most proficient at your job. This allows you to use less paper and helps save the environment. Advanced technology also allows the world to be better and improved. It allows us to communicate with each other and talk about ideas to help the world. I don’t think that technology is bad I think it is good for society.
I do not think that there is a need for new technology but there is at the same time because everyone is so into electronics that many people don’t even use paper to write on or home phones to call on. Everyone is so into electronics nowadays and Some people need the latest technology for the type of job they are in. Business people will probably need to replace their phone every year because it’s always in use with emails and messages and conference calls used. New technology can effect the environment by toxins and fumes. You can take a break with technology by dealing more with the environment. For example, if you go hiking, you don’t need any electronics - maybe your cell phone for pictures, but that’s all. You can go camping or the mountains. You’d be more healthy and active with the environment.
In our society today living in the United States, technology has become a necessity. I use my computer and phone everyday. In the United States it is a way of life. If you want to be included in society today you need technology. You have to fill out college applications online, you can even go to college online.It is a way to environmentally friendly by saving trees.
