  1. Q. Why is it better to get help from people instead of machines?

    A. Machines give help less than people.
    An example, in the a cinema, I was bring out my ticket. Ticket counter line is so long. So I used automatic dispenser. I picked movie and put my money in to the machine. But machine wasn’t gave change. I was so panic. So I called to manager. Manager was check the machine, and fixed that during so long time. It was spend more time than Ticket counter line. After this time, I don’t believe machines.
    I think machines give help less than people.

    1. Good example! I’m sure all of us have been slowed down at some point because of machines.

      I didn’t know you could pay for tickets at a machine with cash.

    2. Hi, Seok hyeon!!! I think agree with you! my thinking is machines give help less than people !!

    3. hi seok hyeon. i’m really agree with your opinion. i use that machine too. but i’m use movie app more than machine. let’s use it!

    4. I agree with you. Machines are unexpectable. We expect machines to do the work everytime,
      so if machine wouldn’t do the work, we are more panic.

    5. That is bad case.
      But most machine that is automatic dispense help to save time.
      I recommand You use app.
      app is helpful better than automatic dispenser.

  2. Q How does technology save us time and make our lives more convenient?

    A In the old days, we have to write a letter when we have a word to tell. But now we just call or send a message. So it can save much time and we grow easy. In my opinion, the development of technology is very helpful to our life.

    1. True, I like sending messages a lot more. Still, it’s nice to receive a handwritten letter once in a while.

    2. I agree with you Ye Ji.
      Nowadays we can send a letter for free by developments such as the Kakao Talk technology.

    3. I agree with you, Yeji.
      Sending a message is simpler than hand writing.
      I think sening a message needs to get emotional energy(I feel).but sening a message is less than it.

    4. Yes. I think so that.

      We send message on free.
      Thaks to kakao talk.
      But I angry when kakao happen the errors.

  3. Q. Why is it better to get help from people instead of machines?

    People more emotion than machines.
    For example,Robot for living alone person but the robot can’t understand they emotion.
    So the robot can’t do entertained person.
    For this reason robot uncommon use life and people more emotion than machines.

  4. Q. How does technology save us time and make our lives more convenient?
    A. Technology can provide better service than people.
    An example, when we use ‘digital dining’, or ‘self-service check out’, customers can order quickly. Paying the bill is quick and easy because the customers can do it themselves.
    Also, the computer program will automatically suggest additional items to order.
    I think that monitors will make servers and customers happy.
    So, technology save us time and make our lives more convenient.

  5. Q. How does technology save us time and make our lives more convenient?
    A. I think technology provide many service.
    For example, We can be active at night thanks bulb. And we can easily wash, not get any water on hand, thanks to the laundry machine. Also, SNS is able to help interact other people. Makes us different kinds of technology are comfortable.
    So, technology save us time and make our lives more convenient.

  6. Q. How does technology save us time and make our lives more convenient?
    A. Technology gives the convenience and help us a lot. Technology helps to save an enormous amount of time on a commercial plane in particular. For example, Machine ends in one second that one person takes by 10 minutes. It is possible to fill the production amount of product of much more than people by it. Technology, so give me a labor-saving and time-saving to us so, it is very useful.

    1. I also think so. Techonolgy and machine help us in many ways. Especially I agree to make for technolohy mass production.

  7. Q. How does technology save us time and make our lives more convenient?

    A. For example, sending message is easy and fast than before. And machine produce something like car, food, phone in large quantities quickly. And Artificial legs can give a hope to person with a limp. Finally Automatic parking technology help someone like elder, women who don’t have driving skills.
    So technology save us time and make our lives more convenient.

    1. Women who don’t have driving skills? You know in America that sentence would be Asians with no driving skills. 😛 Let’s show more sensitivity.

      1. I said my point Erroneously. I know usually women is out of space perception than men And men is out of Language skills than women scientifically. Just i want to say that point. And i know It is not always right. I never ignore women. Thank you for your point out ^^

  8. Q. Why is it better to get help from people instead of machines?
    A. I think people have emotions but machine have not emotions. For example people can feel the pain, machine can’t feel the pain. and Machines can only move in fixed situations and problems, People can move flexibly I think machines give help less than people.

    1. I agree with your comments. Of course the machine has many advantages, machine has no emotions, so it can’t be flexible. it is a critical disadvantage i think machine should be used to fit the situation

    2. Hmm, very philosophical. Can you think of a service situation where it’s better to get help from a person?

  9. Q: Why is it better to get help from people instead of machines?

    A: Usually People understand what customers saying than a machines for example, when cumstomer go to restaurant, he want order salad without onion. if machine take order, customer maybe little uncomfortable to order. but if waiter take order, customer just talk “please remove onions” than he can eat salad without onion.

    1. Oh, It’s good example because you always eat non-onion hamburger. But sometimes machines are idiot. They can only follow manual. As time passed, the manual have diversified. But Sometimes they can’t understand my talk and say the same thing.

    2. I agree your comment. but i think they have each adventage or weekness So i think they will be i harmony

  10. Q.How does technology save us time and make our lives more convenient?

    A. For example, Few years ago, when we use subway. We only use paper ticket. Sometimes so many people standing at the ticket box. I often miss subway because waiting for buy ticket. But I can use T-Money now. It’s so simple. Touch the Tmoney to the card reader. It’s finish!! And If you don’t have T-Money, you can use ticket automates. It’s really faster than human’s ticket box. So I think technology save us time.

    1. I agree this opinion. People now can use T-money than paper ticket. T[money is very convenient product from a day student.

    2. But tiket saleperson is fire.
      it is sad.
      But technology make the new job like T-money engineer.
      It is happy

  11. Q.How does technology save us time and make our lives more convenient?
    A.I think app is as days go by more varity and convenient. So this days may not need to call for some order or reserve. For eample, yogiyo, bedalcall , CGV … Thease app is help for save us time and make our lives more convenient. So i think technology is very useful to us

    1. I use the CGV app a lot. I can’t get a discount on movie tickets, but it’s easier to get a good seat. What’s Yogiyo and Bedalcall?

      1. Yogiyo and Bedal call is app.

        Korean 20’age use this app.

        yogiyo and bedal call is food delivery app.

  12. Q. How does technology save us time and make our lives more convenient?

    A. Before technology was develped, People should do everything by hand. In this reason, technology can do something that originally we had to do. For example, washing machine save our time and labor. If washing machine wasn’t exist, we have to wash by our hand. So, we have to thank to machine. As a result, technology save original our work.

    1. You’re right. It’s terrible to wash all laundry. If washing machines wouldn’t exist, we’ll have to do the laundry all night.

  13. Q.How does technology save us time and make our lives more convenient?
    A.i think, Smartphone makes our lives very convenient. we can use many application on a smart phone. for example, we can check a bus position with bus app. so we need not waste time to wait bus. And we don’t have to miss a bus.

  14. Q.How does technology save us time and make our lives more convenient?
    My Answer..)
    Technology save our time and make our lives more convenient.
    I can get an example which is my experience at the bus tuminal; Quick ticket system machine.
    Not long ago, I went to another region alone. It’s far from my place.
    SO I use a intercity bus. At there, I have to come back to my home becuase I have to go school tomorrow.
    But I didn’t reserve the bus ticket. When I went to the bus terminal, the queue for ticket was really long at a ticket window.
    I felt really urgent.
    I went to a qcick ticket system machine and I can get a ticket of a last bus to my place barely.
    A quick ticket system is really convenint and its manual is eay to use and simple.
    Like this, technology save us time and make our lives more convenint amd save us in a urgent situation.

  15. Q.How does technology save us time and make our lives more convenient?

    I think, We got a lot of benefit to the development of the technology.
    For example, When i was 16, machine that can reserve seats from the reading room was appeared in the liberary near my house.
    Before that machine appeared I had to wait more than 3 or 4 hours to study.
    However, after the machine installed I could study right away.
    I could save my time and felt convenience.

  16. Q.How does technology save us time and make our lives more convenient?

    According to the technology developing, people’s satisfaction with life is better than the past. Every year a great many labor-saving devices are invented. most of all, equipment to lighten the load of domestic work is very popular. for example, robot vacuum is useful. it works rechargeable system. also it’s possible to reserve time. so we go out, the vacuum completes a cleaning by itself. when we will away from home for a few days, we will maintain the cleanliness. so I think technology save us time and make our lives more convenient.

  17. Q.Why is it better to get help from people instead of machines?

    I think it would help more people than machines. Because machines can be used only in specified citcumstances. But machines is quick and easy, don’t understand my emotion,circumstances. For example, children or the elderly need more help and explanation when they order. So, to get help from people is more accurate and attentive than machines.

    1. Hi, Yeon-ju! I agree with your opinion.
      Some of the machines that are difficult for us, I thought, it would be difficult for children and the elderly. If they don’t know how to use it, they will not need.

  18. 1.How does technology save us time and make our lives more convenient?

    Yes. Technology save my time and feel mor convenient.

    For example I use the bus app. Bus app help me to take the bus in time.

    So i’m not late at university.

    Therefore technology save us time and make our lives mor convenient.

  19. Q.How does technology save us time and make our lives more convenient?

    I think as technology develop, we wil be able to use the time more efficiently.
    For example, before the bank application is generated, I must visit the bank for issue cerificate. BUT, I began to be able to re-issue the certificate by using the app. So, visit bank in person, waiting time, writing a document is just a waste of time! Even this app system is very fast than person and convenient. By avoiding the use of unnecessary time, I became more able to invest time elsewhere.
    So I think technology save us time and make our lives more convenient.

    1. I really feel sympathy with you. I also experienced wasting time at the bank because of waiting too much. Now we can make our lives more convenient and save our times thanks to the bank application.

  20. Q.Why is it better to get help from people instead of machines?
    I think it would help more people than machines. Because people can be meticulous and precise.
    For example, some restraunts use a dish washing machine for saving the time and labor.
    But sometimes dishes are not clean so people need to wash the dishes again. In the case of robot vacuum, it can’t clean up all space of the house like edge where people can clean every nook and corner.
    So, to get help from people is more meticulous and precise than machines.
