The days when we had to go to the library to do research for a research paper, had to search for the morning newspaper to get the latest news, had to buy a stamp and put a check in an envelope to pay a bill or had to post letters to our loved ones to keep contact all are thoughts today.
In the last 50 years technology has undergone an amazing transformation.

But is technology making us “lazy”, the question is totally subjective, and depends heavily on one's definition of "lazy", which for me, when used to describe a person, simply means that the person rather do something easy, but relaxing, than something possibly difficult, but rewarding.

Technology can help us in both. For example, a lazy person can stream videos of stand-up comedians all day long on YouTube, while a productive person can research a topic interesting to him/her.

Technology itself is perfectly neutral, it has no preference as to what we do with it, this holds true no matter if we are speaking of the scientific definition of Technology, or the more mainstream definition.

Technology does not do anything by itself. It needs an operator. People have to prepare resources for manufacture foods, have to search books or papers on internet, and have to keep the machines from any risk or disturbances for best performances. So people are not being lazy.
Technology only makes life easy, time consuming and effective.

It is a simple matter of a few keystrokes to send a message across the world, because of the technology. It’s really very good that we can save our time and money also. It’s not said to be lazy.

Fast foods allow us to not bother to cook. Paper dishes and canned drinks mean we don't have to wash up after we eat. And we also have washing machines, vacuum cleaners, computers and all sort of gadgets. It is that these inventions have made our lives easier; we can do more works today because technology saves our time. I don’t think it makes us lazy.

From online banking to internet shipping to paying your bills online, why do you even need to leave the house, never less walk to the mail box to mail something. Everything you need is right there! You don't even have to get dressed. Another way we have become lazy. But I am punching it! I love paying bills online and shopping without the crowds and lines is awesome.

The internet is full of knowledge. It has given students a new window full of knowledge. University students there are cases where they do not even use the library to read of a book. However many people think its quite easily be misleading. But I fully disagree with this. Why would you need to when everything you need is online. Yes it is very convenient, but I also love to read. Some may argue they are still reading online, which is true. But how did they find the information they are reading. By putting in a few search words and bringing up just what they are looking for. With a book you actually have to read it to get what you want. Thus, expanding your knowledge on another subject that may help you in the future.

The world of entertainment technology is often the strongest case for this proposition. Technology’s opponents point to the and DVR, which they say shortens the attention span. Music listeners are no longer required to sift through stacks of records to find a song that they want to hear. DVR users don’t need to watch commercials anymore. The shows that they want to see are instantly presented to them. The extra steps that added some hassle to these pastimes have been irrevocably removed from the equation. Unless a person particularly likes records or old TV, nobody ever needs to complete these minor in-between tasks again.

Some disagreements:

At first glance, it’s hard to argue with the assumption. The newest tech tools cut out dozens of steps for every day tasks that used to be necessary. This can render many tech fans unwilling to said tasks. For instance, it’s never necessary to look a word up in the dictionary anymore. It’s much easier to type the word into Google and read what comes up. Many worry that people are therefore losing the ability to use a dictionary. If they’ve never needed the book, they won’t know how to work it. This could be disastrous if a dictionary’s ever needed–people simply won’t have the ability to use them.

From my personal experience somehow technology reduces our memory. Before I was able to memorize anything like any Authors name, books name, more than hundred phone numbers, birthdays etc but now I can put everything on my mobile phone, pc and also internet. Now, I don’t need to memorize anything. So I think technology reduces our memory.

Many students nowadays don’t know simple calculation by. They are very much dependent on calculators or computers. It is caused a rise in the inability to accomplish the same calculations instantly with your brain.

Today People can’t be bothered to write it in full. This is also affecting the way students write for academic purposes. Even the learned individual seem to bear bad abbreviation habits from the texting to naively import into the formal writing letters, CV etc.
Examiners in our days are getting use to finding IMHO or LOL on an exam answer sheet.
 
And social networking without the need for an intro on the matter, it is the biggest time waster, especially for a student?

I think because of technology, you got more time and hence you are thinking that you are lazy. Infact that is not correctly justified. In old days even if they do use tech they have got time to REST and today if you use tech then ALSO you will time to REST.
