Excerpt from Term Paper :
The fourth is invading privacy an example for this is having an access to your credit card number while you are having transaction using the Internet this is done usually by many hacker in the Internet.
The fifth is that technology increase delinquency in children attitude this is the cause of most violent computer games nowadays in our country. Even though computer games give fun and entertainment for children it also give some bad benefits especially to their attitude because most of them become aggressive if they are playing such type of computer games.
The sixth is manipulation of the truth; one example for this is the issues and information that we have in the web. This is usually happen to the person that is very famous to the country.
Lastly, pornography which is usually happen to the web that even children can have an access to that without even knowing by the parents one reason is because most of them know and knowledgeable on how to use computer.
Here are some good cultural implications of having an access to technology. First having an access to high technology help our industry to grow. If one country has lot of access to high technology especially to the businesses that we have in our country more investor will come and if we have more investor our industry will have an increasing wealth. One example for this is the computer gaming industry, which is the fastest growing industry nowadays. Second, technologies help us to increase the productivity of labor in different countries, different eras and different civilizations. Third, quality of work life because of this high technology we can easily do anything as fast and as good as we want. Lastly, technologies changes are way of communication people can now communicate easily not like before that we are using post mail just to send important messages to others.
Another issue is the effect of medical technology to the socio-economic status of the people with regard to their health. Socioeconomic status usually measures the income, education, or wealth of the people. People at higher levels of socio-economic status appear to be in better health. This is true whether health is measured using mortality, general health, or other outcomes.
New medical technology makes it possible for people to be healthy in ways that may have been considered almost unattainable in the past. New technology also tends to lower the price of health care. One example of this is highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) for the treatment of HIV. This treatment was not available in the 1990s. It may seem expensive in absolute terms, but it offers individuals the prospect of living - of making HIV a chronic disease rather than a disease that is inevitably fatal in the short-term. That makes the cost of HAART therapy seem relatively low when measured as the cost per unit of health improvement.
Individuals with more education are better able to comply with treatment and many new technologies make it possible for them to have better health. This is also true in the case of HAART, which involves a very complicated medication regimen. They found that better adherence to the regimen is associated with higher levels of socioeconomic status.
From this perspective, new medical technologies can lead to bigger socio-economic status that is related to the different health outcomes. There is a greater impact of socio-economic status than we might see with other types of medical care. People with higher socio economic status tend to benefit more and earlier from certain types of new medical technologies. One way to think about this is to think of new medical technologies as a sale on health. People with higher socio-economic status are often situated to take advantage of the sale and are likely to benefit more.
Technology also is use to support those people with sensory disabilities. Alternative means of input and output to typical screens and keyboards help them to access technology and be knowledgeable in using computer even though they have disabilities. Technology also helps people with disabilities to be practical for individuals with disabilities. For example, a blind person using a CD-ROM-based encyclopedia on a computer equipped with synthetic speech output. These are some helpful support done by new technologies to those people with disabilities.
Remember that as long as there is people in this world technology will continue to evolve in our country.
