In the world today, I believe that it has become a need to have the latest technology. Schools are beginning to transfer to online activities and note taking abilities to make it easier and more manageable. A lot of businesses, in fact, almost all of them use computers to chart items, do research, make documents, and keep files online. If you did not have this technology, it would be extremely hard to learn anything in school or keep track of records at work. Not only do you use this technology in school and at work, but you use it to actually get a job. A lot of employers ask for the future employee to go online to fill out an application or watch videos for training. Not having this technology would be hard to do.

I personally believe that latest technology is a want. Yes, everyone uses it and they expect you to use it too but not everyone can learn how to use it. It is like buying the iPhone 4 when it first came out, then buying the iPhone 4s because it was new, and then buying the 5, 5s, or 5c just because its new. Not everything new is always better. I do not see a difference in how the phones work differently. Other than how they look, i do not really see the need for an iPhone 5s or 5c. I just recently upgraded to the iPhone 4s in November and it was my first smart phone. Before that I would get a new phone, for free, every two years with my upgrade. The only reason I got a smart phone was because of all of the stuff that it can do and because I will be going away to college next year. In my opinion, I think that there is no reason to go out and buy the newest model just because it’s new. How do you feel about buying the newest technology?

    I completely agree with you Maddi, I feel our society has partially become too reliant on technology. I too have a iphone, a 5s, but I definitely agree with you about getting the 'new' phone because it's 'so much cooler'. Honestly, I think the media and marketing over exaggerates new technology about how 'neat and cool' it is, making us believe we need to have it. Truth be told, those companies who take advantage of that have been very successful from it.
    Yes, technology is great and it helps save our environment in many ways. But, should some forms of technology (mostly for entertainment) be draining our wallets because it's a connivence we all love? Personally, my wallet says no.

I believe that having the latest technology is a need for America because we have become such busy people that we need ways to stay in touch with others. I myself am always doing something at school and having to stay late, so if my parents need to know where I am at, then it is easy for them to just text or call me. Personally, I do not get a phone very often, I do not get one until my contract is up (2 years). When I do get an upgrade, it is very much needed because the newer phones have better updates and other necessities that make a phone wonderful. In today’s society, we would not have a lot of things that we consider important if it was not for technology, like machines that have helped find cures for majority of the diseases, like the Flu or Polio. Technology is getting better and better every day and in the future who knows what amazing technological advances would be made?

    I believe that it's a need because if you haven't got the latest technology you haven't good information and news but for young people it's also a want because they like last models and they are influenced by advertisement on tv.

Technology is definitely both a necessity and a want, in some cases ;like in the business world, or in communication, technology is most definitely a necessity. We need to have communication to talk to other over long distances and let out a message that other may need to know. We also need technology in business because it not only saves a TON of paper, but it also makes it easier to get a message out to other businesses. On the other hand though we do not really need the newest and best technology on things like gaming and apps. Like is having the new xbox or having siri on your phone. Those things are just basic wants that are not needed in life.

    Bailey, I agree with you. When it comes to the business aspect or needing to get information, technology is a necessity. It has also led to many discoveries, which have been important to our changing world. But I also agree that when it comes to having the latest phone or apps, that is a need. People have become so reliant on technology, that when they are waiting at the doctor's or even having dinner, they are on their phone. It is a want and not a need to have the latest technology, which makes it to where you are on your phone all the time.
  • Adam Edmunds Adam Edmunds Feb. 27, 2014
    Bailey is correct, in the sense of entertainment, especially for young people, technology is just a want. Contrary to popular belief, we do not need the newest updates the exact day that they come out. Some have it planted in their heads that we cannot survive without being on the same page that the media infers we should be on. I also agree with Bailey in the sense that having the proper technology in the workforce is, in fact, a need. If one has a job that relies on a computer, and they have an outdated computer that is slow and incapable of doing certain things, their performance in their job will be extremely poor. There is no need in getting behind in the workforce when there is amazing technology available for your needs.
  • Leonardo Ferrari Feb. 27, 2014
    I agree with you Bailey. Technology, nowadays, is crucial! I think technology just in rare cases is a need, like the latest version of a phone, but in most cases is a necessity, just think about all the things technology makes for us everyday or just try to live a day without technology… I think It would be impossible.

Having the latest technology is a necessity to a certain extent. In the business world and social world it is important to have the latest technology. Whether you are trying to safely navigate down the road or get ahead in your business, technology can be useful. When it comes to social media and games I think the newest technology becomes a want. It is not necessary to have the newest iPhone or iPod that comes out because there is usually not much of a difference between the products. Having a phone to communicate with is enough. Lots of technology was created for amusement, which makes it a want and not a necessity.

    I agree with this statement. Schools are evolving to be more technologically dependent for assignments, notes, and quizzes/tests. I believe this is beneficial to our environment because, though it uses an energy resource, we are cutting down our use of paper products therefore reducing the amount of trees we need for an every-day classroom. However there is a fine line when we become too dependent on technology and don't know how to function in our live without it. We need to be responsible on how much we depend on our phones and computers for information and communication.

Society is constantly changing and to not be up to date on the latest technology means you are going to be left behind. For example if you were using an old system to give a presentation and another employe was using the newest and most eye appealing system to give a presentation, the one with the most updated would get the job. Technology is a need in society because this time period is the technological revolution. New technology is constantly being created making the business or worker with the most to offer the most successful and if we want to be viewed as an asset we must be the most technological advanced and up to date and the newest technology.

    I agree with Katelyn. Technology in most cases is a want, but sometimes can be considered a need. Those who have the most up to date technology are most likely to get better opportunities especially when it comes to jobs that deal with technology. One who is up to date and knows how to work newer technology will get along a lot better in an environment in which the skills are needed. If it was to come to someone who new how to work the newer technology and one who didn't, the one who did know would most likely get the job. This way, time would not need to be taken to teach these skills.

    I see where you both are coming from, but I mostly disagree in your phrasing. You might consider newer technology an aid, but it is by no means a necessity to actually live. You can't place a cell phone on the same level as shelter and food. Many, many people live without them—but this doesn't change the fact that many people are unhealthily addicted to their mobile convenience. To call technology a need is to say one requires it to live, or otherwise to fundamentally miss the purpose of the wants versus needs debate. Yes, they are extremely helpful. Yes, a lot of people admit that they couldn't live without them. No, they're not a need.

Having the latest technology is, in most cases, a want. The technological world is constantly changing and becoming more advanced every minute. Humans practically cannot keep up with these continuos advancements being made on a consistent basis. Sometimes ones solution to these continual upgrades is to up themselves to the newest and greatest electronic ‘style’ available. This is not always necessary. For instance, Apple’s iPhone is updated at least once a year. It is currently at the level of the 5S, which isn’t much different than the 5, which is quite similar to the 4S, which is just a little faster than the 4. Needless to say, you do not always need to be exactly up to date with your technology, as long as what you possess makes you happy and gets the job done. I must say, though, if one has a flip-phone, it may be time to bury it, give in, and move on to bigger and better devices, because those are soon to be extinct.

    I agree with Adam when it comes to technology being a want, with technology such as cell phones and computers. I think that as long as you can text and call,the phone is sufficient. But now if you don't have a phone without internet and siri, its not something you want! But there are some points when having the latest technology is a necessity, such as being in the business and technology world. Sometimes if you don't have those certain technology pieces, you won't make it in the real world!
  • Neza T-Slovenia Neza T-Slovenia Feb. 27, 2014
    Hi!I agree with both of you and I think that a lot of people today are really obsessed with their phones and computers and they are appreciated by others only by price of a good phone. Which is really sad.

I think technology is basically a need because of its integral part of society’s movement forward. Human innovation is continuous, that is the fact of life. Is it necessary for survival? Obviously not, but I still believe it to be a need. We should look into making technology better for our planet, and just practice individual discretion with the way we use it and its impact on our carbon footprints. No, you do NOT need the latest iPhone, everything in moderation. We need to look for ways to reduce our footprint in other areas of life.

Having the latest technology can be both a want and a need. You may want the latest technological invention to be “cool” or to “fit in.” So, basically you may want the latest technology so you can be like everyone else. Having the latest technology can also be a need. You may need that new computer for school, or you may need that updated phone in order to get certain things like Apps. That piece of technology that you have now will eventually be out of date. So out-of-date technology can go both ways. For example, you may have a phone that no one else has anymore and is discontinued in assembly, so you may want to get a newer version. Also, if something goes wrong with that phone, you probably would not be able to find parts or accessories for it which forces you to get a new one. So, having the latest technology can easily go both ways.

Whether a cell phone is a want or a need is depending on the way you look at it. When cell phones first came out it was a luxury to have one but now it is rare to meet someone who does not own one. I do not believe that having the latest cell phone is a need, but has become more of one over time. People have become dependent on their smart phones for their organization, entertainment, and communication. While cell phones are not a necessity to sustain life, they may be necessary for other things, like jobs. Technology has become such a large part of everyone’s lives that living in this modern society, having the latest thing is becoming more of a necessity than a want.

    I agree, but not even the latest, just technology that is good enough, my phone is far from the latest but it helps me keep in touch with others and to keep me organized. My carbon foot print is a lot lower than most people around me because I do not drive hardly at all, if i need to go to school i ride the bus, if i need to go to a friends house i walk there.
