problems that microsoft has caused
Problems that Microsoft has caused
  • Over the years it has been affecting us in numerous negative ways.
  • Has been making us lazier-we don’t have to do much, the computer does it all
  • Makes us impatient when we aren’t on a computer-when we aren’t online we are used to everything being instant, not having to wait for stuff.
  • Obesity-people no longer go outside as much because they can play on a computer or Xbox
  • Monopolization of its industry-not many

companies are able to make it since they

wouldn’t be able to trade info with Microsoft's

computers that are already in almost every

business and home.

conclusion
Conclusion
  • Mostly I think that Microsoft has helped out more than it has hindered us. It has allowed many companies to expand faster so we can get what we want easier. It also has made it so most families can have a computer. It also is a huge donator. In all it has spent almost 1 $billion, The software they donated is valued at $3.9 billion.
  • They may be blamed for the bad effects, but those are also our fault. We decide how much time we spend on their machines, but it’s not like the bad things are caused the second you use one. The goods outweigh the bad in my mind.
