Computers in Today’s World
Computer industry is the fastest growing industry in the world today. Both in the fields of software and hardware the forward movement is at such a great pace that the common man finds it difficult to keep pace with it.
A computer is basically no more than an empty box and is useless without a man to handle it. Therefore man is the master and the computer is the slave and that in the way things should be. But if man doesn’t keep himself upto date with the developments in the computer world then there will come a time when fewer and fewer people there will be, who will know how to handle the more and more advanced machines and eventually the roles could change and spell disaster.
Where ever we go, whichever offices or shops or factories we go into, the new cars, train, bus, ships and planes we enter into, we see a lot of computerised automation done. All the computerisation does make life easier and more comfortable but with the use of less and less man power in the control of things.
Computerisation is leading to more and more retrenchments from jobs, early retirements and more and more unemployment. We see, therefore, that while computers lead to a more comfortable and a flawless services, they are paving the way for an enormous unemployment problem as well.
