The technological advance that is moving us towards a more globalized society, is computers. Computers have had a significant impact on globalizing the world. There are many benefits of computers such as communication and helping improve medical science. At the same time, there are many potential negative impacts such as cyber theft and loss of jobs. Overall, I believe the positives of computers far outweigh the negative impacts of computers. First of all, computers have had a huge impact in communication. Before there were computers, we had to use morse code, letters, and expensive phone calls, but now with computers, we have the ability to send electronic mail (e-mail), send voice messages through Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), …show more content…
A huge negative impact caused by computers is cyber theft. Many banks have been subjected to many cyber thieves accross the world. When you think of a bank robber, you would think of someone stealing a few thousand dollars by going to a bank with a gun and demanding money. That is nothing compared to cyber theives. A group of cyber thieves stole 300 million to 1 billion dollars, from 30 banks accross the world, in just two years (securityweek.com). Thousands of people across the world had their money stolen. That is unfathomable to physically do for any bank robber, but possible for cyber thieves. Another negative impact from computers, is jobs being taken by computers.

Another way to prevent bank fraud is to have a strong anti-virus on your computer, so that hackers won 't send an e-mail with malware to infect your computer. Now to prevent computers from taking your job is more tricky. One way to prevent that, is to get a good education and become a skilled worker (washingtonpost.com). Computers haven 't been advanced enough to take the job or a doctor, or an engineer, or a lawyer, and many other skilled fields, so it 's another push for someone to get their education. An example is what I 'm doing is, I know I cannot defeat computers, so I decided to do the old saying "If you can 't beat em ', join em. '" tactic, which is to major in Computer Science and work together with computers. In conclusion, computers have helped globalized the world. Without computers, I don 't think humankind could 've become this interconnected. Computers have many benefits, a child can send an e-mail to his grandmother that lives in the other side of his country, and a doctor can get on skype and see first hand what kind of treatment a patient needs in the other side of the world.
