Today all people buy a new pc, smartphone or tablet but I think this things aren’t a need… some people buy them only to show them to other people. I think the best utility of technology might be to search a new system to make the earth less polluted. I’m studying to be a surveyor and I study sustainable energy to apply to ecobuilding, it’s incredible how much money you can save if you install them in their house.

I believe this topic can really swing both ways equally. It becomes important to possess a cellphone because it keeps you in contact with people you need to get a hold of and helps give information easy and efficiently. On the other hand, most phones these days have way more features then we really need but some of those features make communication so much easier.
Hi,I am Iva and I am from Croatia.Mobile phones can be bad and good.Mobile phones make our life better by keeping us constantly connected. We can use them to text, watch videos, take photos, play games, listen to tunes, and get coupon codes, weather updates and even directions.Cell phone use is not just a teen or young adult thing. It’s an everybody thing!77% of teens own cell phones; 35% of adults own a smart phone. 38% of cell phone owners use it during commercials. 13% of cell phone owners say they have used their phones to avoid interacting with people.We need to use cell phones but in normal amounts.
Hello everyone, my names is Federico. I live in Cerveno, a small village in the north of Italy. I think that this problem concerns mainly the young. For example in my school more and more young people want to buy a new phone or a new computer only for fashion or to have the latest model. I think that this isn’t a need; for example I don’t change a phone until it still works and I think everyone should learn to do it.
I think the having the latest technology is a need for people who actually have to use them for business and work. However, it is a want for people who does not necessarily need them. For example, many people in my school have iphone 5 or some other newest technology, but I highly doubt that a 16 year old teenager needs such a high technology to help himself to study or work? The phone I have right now is my second one, I had my first phone since gr. 6, and got a new phone in gr. 9. I only buy a new mp3 if it is broken. Personally, I do not need a new model. I think most of the electronic devices affect the environment in the society, people should be careful and only buy necessary needs.
I think it could be easily argued both ways: technology it’s a want/ need.
Want : Everyone wants the newest and best technologies, the next best iPhone, the next best android, but it’s all a desire of a new and rapidly growing generation of materialists. We all KNOW that these technologies aren’t necessities but we don’t accept it.
Need : the rapid development of these new technologies forces every company to always be finding ways to make their product the best, this kind of competition leads to the development of new technologies that could ultimately lead to something much greater than simply a new phone.
” I am fine with what I have as long as it works.” Few people think about this. I’ve learned that technology is always advancing itself and every month something new is coming out. So those who have the newest stuff before it even hits the shelf only have the spotlight for a while before something else comes.
In this time, people WANT the last generation mobile or iPod or PC, but every phone are all equal, it’s just a matter of being the latest fashion and make themselves better.
I believe that a person is not better just because it has the latest generation of mobile.
We use our until it works so as to pollute much less.
Hello my name is Andrea, I’m 17 I live in Italy. I think technology has been especially created to help the man in every day life, such as cell phones that allow you to stay in touch with anyone, anywhere. It is true that the excessive use of technology, such as video games is something completely useless and you could easily do without it; alternative would be to be with friends to spend some time outdoors rather than being alone in front of a screen.
It seems to me like having the latest technology is usually not a need. I don’t really see a huge difference between the newest version of the Iphone and the last generation. I think that it’s fine to upgrade every few generations when it gets to the point that what you have is completely unusable compared to new things.
