Household appliances Modern household has a lot of appliances. They are: a dishwasher, a microwave oven, an electric grill, a cordless phone, a home theatre and many others. They make our life easier, economize our time and save energy. Undoubtedly all these things are helpful because they are automatic, compact, easy to operate and mobile.
One of the greatest achievement of the last years has definitely been the invention of the car. Theyve completely changed our lives. People had to walk or catch the bus, which was inconvenient. Things like getting home from work or going shopping took much longer so people had less time for other things. The invention of cars have meant that we have more time for leisure and that we can go farther, to more interesting places. You can easily spend the weekend in the countryside a hundred miles away. In the past people travelled much less and they couldnt go to so many exciting places… Nowadays, thanks to the car, they can go all over the world and have a much wider experience of life. People who lived in remote places were very isolated, they didnt have contact with the outside world, so society was less mixed and open. These days with the help of cars the way to work is shorter – you can work in the city and live in the countryside, people can travel on business from town to town more, so people have more opportunities and have more contact with people from other places.
Television is one of the greatest achievements of the 20-th century. Many people have forgotten what the world was like before TV. Nowadays it has become an integral part of our lives. The name «Television» comes from Greek word meaning «far» and a Latin word meaning «to see», and thus it means «to see far». Television has changed much since the time of its invention. When TV first appeared its main purpose was to give offieial information to people. By the beginning of the 20-th century TV became a coloured world network. Numerous programmes people can receive by satellite or cable. The choice of the channels ranges from six to sixty. These channels show a great variety of programmes: documentaries and current affairs programmes, feature films and comedies, soaps and police series, concerts and talk shows. Now television is a reflection of the modern world. It keeps you informed about the rest of the world. Television is a wonderful invention. Its a cheap form of entertainment which gives pleasure to millions of people, especially those who live alone. Television plays an important part in the human life despite increasing influence of the Internet, video games and other high –technology sources of information.
Computers The modern world of high technology could not be possible without computers. The world computer comes from a Latin word which means to count. But a computer is not only a calculating machine, it stores and analyses information. The computer functions as a multi – functional machine: it helps you to control your budget and diet, write letters, it helps you to spend your free time and plays games with you. The personal computer can help the man to solve a lot of problems dealing with storing and processing information, communication and education. Computerized models of teaching materials studied allow the students to see the results of this instruction on a display screen, make understanding of the material very simple and make the development of a creative approach in teaching and learning easier and more productive. The application of electronics allows to have contents of books, magazines fed into the computer memory, where this is analyzed, arranged in a certain order and produced on requests as a printed computer programme. Knowledge is the most valuable wealth of our times. And computers will help to make it accessible to everyone. We cant imagine our life without a computer. Life has changed thanks to computerization and no doubt a computer is the Eighth Wonder of the world.
Internet The Internet, a computer-based worldwide information network, is composed of a large number of smaller interconnected networks called internets. These internets may connect tens, hundreds, or thousands of computers, enabling them to share information with each other and to share various resources, such as powerful supercomputers and databases of information. The Internet has made it possible for people all over the world to communicate with each other effectively and inexpensively. Unlike traditional broadcasting media, such as radio and television, the internet is decentralized system. Each connected individual can communicate with anyone else on the Internet, can publish ideas, and can sell products with a minimum overhead cost. In the future, the Internet may have a dramatic impact on higher education and business as more universities offer courses and more companies offer goods and services online.
