The advent of the computer is one of the results of the development of the advantaged technology. While some people advocate for the idea that computers have made life more complex and stressful, others support the idea that computers have made life easier and more convenient. In my point of view, computers brought convenience and easiness to our life since they enabled easier access to information and increased qualities of the communication.

First, computers through internet made our access to information easier. Through computers we can collect appropriate data very quickly, store it in the hard disc as long as we want and use it when needed. Search engines such as google, yandex with many features relevant to the characteristics of the information needed enable search of information in few minutes. Social networks such as facebook, twitter have changed traditional sources of information and decreasing the monopolization of the information by the governments. Hence, with the use of computers we spend less time in search for information, and can get it from different sources.

Second, in a globalized world that we live computers made communications faster, visual and cheaper. With the use of email our messages can be delivered to any person in any part of the world in few minutes. In addition, it is convenient because you do not need to mile to the post office, but just click the mouse of your computer from the convenience of your arm chair in order to reach your friends, family members in any part of the world. Internet facilities such as msn, skype made visual communication possible. For example, via skype people not just communicate with their family members and friends, but also make interviews for employment, enrolment into universities. In result, communication has become cheaper, faster and visual.

Finally, I believe that computers have made life easier and more convenient in the ways that it broadened the sources of information and made access more quick, a long with the improving quality of the communication in many ways.

Hello. Another essay to check if I has progressed. Please review and rate.

Some people say that computers have made life easier and more
convenient. Other people say that computers have made life more complex
and stressful. What is your opinion? Use specific reasons and examples to
support your answer.

No one can imaging modern live without computers, except for may be tribes living deeply in the jungles of Africa, Indonesia or South America. I think that computers have made our lives easier and more comfortable for two reasons. First is an automation of routine calculations connected with accounting, mathematics or physics. Second is an integration of computers into machines and devices which created robots and other specialized mechanisms. For these reasons, I feel that computers have significantly helped us since the moment they became widely used.

To begin with, I think that a computer is a powerful calculation device. It outperforms humans in basic arithmetic and subsequently can produce result of difficult calculations in a moment. Such a performance frees a lot of potential when a person deals with scientific or analytic tasks. Furthermore, a computer enhanced with sophisticated programs can perform a powerful prognosis in areas of economics or weather prediction which was hardly achievable earlier. Several years ago the IBM Blue Gene supercomputer beat world champion in chess Kasparov in a series of games. I think it is a great example of a computer used a prognosis tool.

Secondly, integration of a computer into another device or machine creates even more powerful device like robot. For example, it is hard to imagine mass production without specialized robots in assembly or packaging lines. Such robots replace humans in monotonous or even physically draining manufacturing processes and decrease the production costs in most cases. Another example is a tomographic scanner which is in a fact a symbiosis of a computer and a scanner. This is a great step forward which allows a doctor to make more precise diagnosis.

To sum up, I think that computers are great helpers in areas connected with time-consuming calculations. This is because computers allow people to concentrate on more creative tasks or enhance their physical abilities. For the reasons explored above I think that computers have eased our lives and have made them more comfortable.

Hi Mdenissov, I think this essay is excellent. It is very well organized, clear and convincing, and relevant to the topic. You have some great vocabulary and all of your words are used correctly. You have a couple errors here and there though, especially in your use of articles. Also remember that "which" clauses usually need a comma. Overall, I would rate this a 4.5 out of 5.
