I’m working on a Health & Medical exercise and need support.
Post a comment/answer, on the discussion board, regarding one of the following questions:
- Home computers are used more extensively than ever for tasks such as banking, investing, shopping, and communicating. Do you see this as having a positive or a negative impact on our society and economy? Do you plan to use a computer in these ways? Why?

I do think that the variety of ways we now use our home computers is extremely beneficial and positive. It helps us reach and connect with the people and places we need to, all in the safety and comfort of our homes. The condition of our country right now during this pandemic is a clear example of why all these ways we are able to use our computers is so important. We are still able to attend school, buy necessary items and have them shipped to our homes, see our families even though we cannot physically visit them, and still communicate with doctors and lawyers to receive any crucial information we need. I do use my computer in a lot of these ways, especially when it comes to online shopping because I can get the things I need and want without putting me or my family at risk. I have always been a fan of taking online classes because it does not interfere with other things I may have going on personally. The only negative side I see to using your computer for all these tasks is that you could potentially have your information accessed and used to purchase things. But all that means is that you should be extremely careful with what websites you are putting your information into and who you allow onto your computers.
