Has technology made the world a better place to live?

Whether technology has made the world a better place to live is a prevalent topic undergoing serious debate. After pondering it from several aspects, I totally agree it is true that technology has made the world a better place to live. This I support with the following reasons  

As we know, firstly technology can help people to live a longer life. A small example can give some light to this point. At the stone age, our ancestors` average age is about 25. Due to the development of medical technology, now people`s average age is two or three times of that time.  

Another reason why I prefer to this choice lies in the fact that technology ameliorate the environment in which people living in. for example, thousand of yeas ago people lived in caves, which are cold in winter and hot in summer. With using Architectural technology, people build up houses, skyscrapers. Living in them, people enjoy the comfortable lives without worrying about the whether it is hot, cold or rainy outside.   Finally I want to mention that technology has brought our lives more and more convenience. For instance, many people like music, classic music or pop music. At the beginning, people must go to the theater whenever he wanted to hear a song. . Today, by using great technologies, walkmans and Discmans are supplied for the music fans. Then they can enjoy their favorite songs anywhere and anytime.  

From what has been discussed above, we can safely draw the conclusion that technology has made the world a better place to live.
