Stone Age, the time, early in the development of human cultures, before the use of metals, when tools and weapons were made of stone.
The dates of the Stone Age vary considerably for different parts of the world. The Stone Age in the Americas began when human beings first arrived in the New World, some 30,000 years ago, and ended in some areas about 2500 BC at the earliest.
The Paleolithic, or Old Stone Age, was the longest, when human creatures first used stone tools.
The Bronze Age in the Middle East and the eastern Mediterranean has been divided into three phases early, middle, and late. The early phase is characterized by increased use of the metal, from the sporadic to the common. The Bronze Age there ended about 1200 bc, after which iron technology became common.
Iron technology had spread throughout the classical world by about 500 BC. Early steels were discovered by adding small amounts of carbon to iron as it was hammered over a charcoal fire. Mining became well developed and included the use of pumps to keep mines from flooding.
Such English inventions as the flying shuttle and carding machines of John Kay, the water frame of Richard Arkwright, the spinning jenny of James Hargreaves, and the improvements in weaving made by Samuel Crompton were all integrated with a new source of power, the steam engine, developed in England by Thomas Newcomen, James Watt, Richard Trevithick, and in the U.S. by Oliver Evans.
With the development of assembly-line mass production of automobiles and household appliances, acceptance of innovations became not only a fact of everyday life but also a way of life in itself. Society was being rapidly transformed by increased mobility, rapid communication, and a deluge of available information from mass media. Twentieth-century technology spread from Europe and the U.S. to other major nations such as Japan and the Soviet Union
Waking up in the morning, what you probably think first is “what should I wear to school or work?”, and turn on the TV. Even those little things, we rely on technology.
We are surrounded by technology in our everyday lives. From the moment we wakeup until we end our days lying in our beds, we depend and take advantage of technology. As the minutes pass by, technology keeps advancing
We do not even send letters via post mail anymore because we have e-mail, nor do we wait until we get home to make phone calls because we have cell phones. These things have become necessities in our lives rather than luxuries.
Let’s see how the world would be if we did not have technology in this modern society. People would probably be late to work, because there would be no alarm, car or actual transportation, communication would be harder, and definitely researching for a paper would be more difficult.
But did you ever think there wouldn’t be enough food, fresh and clean water,clothing, shelter, or many of those other necessities we need to live? Well, all these necessities are made in vast amounts and more rapidly due to technology.
If we were to try to make these provisions without technology, there would also be fewer trees due to needing the trees for fire,light, warmth, et cetera.
So even though few people believe we are ruining the environment with technology, I bet they never thought we would be wrecking the natural resources without technology.
Small computer processors, known as microchips, are being embedded in almost everything from automobiles to refrigerators, making them smarter and better able to serve us.
Organizations are equipping their work forces with lightweight portable computers, allowing them to communicate wirelessly with their home offices and have access to information in the field.Computer Revolution
A lot of people is concerning about how we are relying on computers to do what we had once done in our own heads.
Another aspect is that computer revolution is increasing the isolated population. People is losing the personal contact that made the workplace an essential element in the social fabric of the community.Computer Revolution
