TASK: The telephone has greater influence on people ’s lives than television has.

In the recent years, the impact that technology has had in our daily life, is generally undeniable. As a means of communication, telephone facilitates us to get in touch with others to a great extent. Likewise, television extremely enriches our spare time, bidding farewell to the former dull ages. Consequently, when it comes to whether the telephone has greater influence on people ’s lives than television has, people ’s notions vary from one to another.

It ’s undisputable that telephone is extremely important and convenient, playing a role as a bridge among people. In the ancient ages, the communication in remote distance was almost impossible in that except fireworks and drumbeats as signs at war, there were nearly no other means of correspondence. After the appearance of domesticated pigeons, human commenced using carrier pigeons to get in touch and convey important information, but which was sometimes untrustworthy because carrier pigeons might get lose, resulting in information-missing. Although post office came into existence then, it still couldn’t satisfy the needs for emergency. Human always couldn ’t achieve long-distance communication in real-time until telephone was invented, which totally changed the way to correspondence, making it easier for us to convey

information timely. In addition, telephone is extensively used to connect our friends and relatives, promoting the relationships between people and narrowing the distance between hearts.

However, it is also undeniable that television is genuinely useful and popular. So many diverse programs are provided that we can choose any one we prefer, extensively enriching our spare time. For instance, TV play series is a good option for us to kill boring time and add more pleasure to our lives. And we can acquaint with celebrities deeper through an edition of talk show program, even contributing to setting up a model to motivate ourselves. Certainly, television is also a wonderful tool for us to gain the current affairs in every field, helpful for us to have a better understanding of society and integrate into the society. All in all, television has a profound influence on us in daily life, penetrating into our minds and changing the way to analyze problems.

Judging from above evidence offered, I can hardly agree that the telephone has a greater influence on people ’s lives than television has. Although telephone actually facilitates us to get in touch with others to a great extent, with the development of science and technology, it is gradually replaced by mobile phone and other online chatting software, which even can realize face-to-face communication. From my perspective, television has a greater influence on people’s lives, because of the variety of TV programs, which lets television can penetrate into our lives more

extensively. Television has already not merely a way of entertainment, but also a channel for us to build up our values and ethics, changing our way to get along with others.
