 Computers have taken over our lives.
Computers are great things, and are very useful in everyday life, but they create a certain distraction which just overpowers our will to stay away from the computer. In our modern day world, computers are absolutely essential and all around us, at work, at schools, at malls etc. It is impossible to run away from these devices and we've become so dependent on it that we just can't do things on our own now. For example, say you were doing some homework and you couldn't figure out the answer, instead of trying to understand the problem or asking a peer for help, you go onto Google and find the answer. The attachment takes away from our independent thinking and will remain with us until we learn become less dependent on the computers. Posted by: Anonymous

 Too Dependent.
We have become too dependent on computers for answers, personal interactions, and we spend way too much time on them. If we used the computers for learning and as a tool this issue wouldn't be as big. The sad truth is that people use this great tool for an easy way to get out of face to face interactions with other people. In 10-20 years it is said that there will be a computer smarter than the whole human race alive today. That is a scary future that we don't have to look very far to. Posted by: Anonymous

 Yes, because we rely on them way too much.
They kind of take over kids' everyday lives. Kids are always playing uneducated games on them. As soon as they get home from school, they head straight for the computer. We save too much important information on them as well. If the computer crashes, we will no longer have all of that information. And, we can't learn cursive writing anymore. When kids grow up, they're going to have jobs and will need to sign for things. They aren't going to be able to sign for those things because they won't know their signature! Even though computers are very useful for ALL places around the world, we still shouldn't be so dependent on them.

We are too dependent on computers to do everything for us and soon we won't be doing anything but using our computers or cell phones to do everything instead of just trying it ourselves. So I clearly stated yes we depend on computers too much and I think we need to take a break from them every once in a while.

People might think we are not overly dependent on computers but we are. We use computers a lot of times to download games, downloading apps, and also for lots of other things like using Facebook. When the computer or the internet go down, people freak out which shows we are entirely too dependent because we can't do anything without computers. For example if we want to pay we will pay from the net, if we want to buy we will buy from net. Humans are getting lazy because of this computer. Computers are to be used in good way, but some children used in wrong way. Posted by: Anonymous

 Death Of Culture
We have become so connected that everyone is "in the know." There is less independence as people become more similar. They go to work, come home, watch television/Sit at a computer/Cell Phone, sleep, and repeat. I was shopping online for gifts to get people and didn't know what they were actually interested in since that's their daily routine. Posted by: Anonymous

 People rely on computers at work and in personal lives and are certainly too dependent. Computers take over kids' everyday lives. Kids are always playing games that offer no educational benefits. They're on computers at school, and as soon as they get home from school, they head straight for the computer. Learning on the computer at school keeps children from writing out assignments. Cursive skills are lacking as a result. When kids grow up, they're going to have jobs and will need to sign for things. They aren't going to be...
