In the article “Are Smartphones Makings Us Stupid?” (Upfront) I learned that Eighty-one percent of Americans own a phone. Every human in the world has a phone that carries the entire day. Some people say Yes and others say No. The “Yes” part says “Phones make us more and more wrapped up in ourselves”. And the “No” part says “Never in history have we had so much access to information, ideas, and creativity”.

I think that both sides are correct. Technology makes our life easier and facilitates more things than before. And we need to contribute and don’t stay all day on the phones. No matter what phones it’s a big tool and makes easier your day.

What is your thinking?

Dear Veronica:
I am impressed by your post, “Phones are above us,” because we all know that phones gives access to alot of imformation, it also gives the opportunities to create new ideas, and use the creativity that we all have.

One sentence that you wrote that stands out for me is: ” Technology makes our life easier and facilitates more things than before.” I agree with you because technology give us a lot facilitates things, on where everyone can learn.

Thanks for your writing. I look foward to seeing what you write next, because I like how you exlain how phones makes our life easy. I would like to continue telling me about how phones make our life more easy.
