You should do your own homework. Being lazy won't get you anywhere.

Computers are interesting things, and their benefits are numerous. Let's look at a few areas of their usage.
Before I started using a computer, I typed with 2 fingers. After about a week of being on the computer, I was using all of them. It was important to see the screen at the same time I was typing, especially when 3 or 4 on-line chat windows were open at the same time. I didn't want to miss a word anyone was saying. Therefore my style and typing speed took a quantum leap.
If I wanted to know the meaning of the phrase "quantum leap" I could go to a search engine and educate myself about it's meaning, within a few minutes.
I made a friend last year who came from Taiwan. He had to go back, but I talk to him every once in a while by way of the computer. We chat back and forth, as if we were sitting across a table. He has made arrangements to stay at our house next year, when he returns.
Before computers, I needed to spend large amounts of time at a library, or reading through numerous books for bibliography references, in order to get just the right information for a research paper. Now, I can go to a search engine online, press a few buttons, and have thousands of references to pick and choose from at my fingertips.
If I wish to fix my bicycle, I can print out exact instructions for my make and model. Plus any special tools, and how I can improvise when I havent got the right ones.
If I want to know what that lump is on my backside, I can determine that quite accurately as well.
Finally,when I have put off my reports until the last possible minute, I can get all the needed information and can have it ready before breakfast is over.
People see what they want to see. Some only see the computer as a grim monster, ready to attach itself to a person, dragging him to destruction. It can be exactly that. I would rather think of the possibilities that could now be if Mr Newton, and Mr Einstein had in front of them the little box I am typing on now.
I heard a song once which encouraged me to "stop and smell the roses along the way". In this respect, the computer is the worlds greatest garden. Any can enter, & all can smell the roses there. Good luck on your paper
