Altho', not hard by any means. Just want a couple of answers since my worksheet actually says to use the internet to find out the answers.

So, can anybody answer these (yes, I do know some of them but some variety is nice :D):

What are the advantages of the reduced need to travel (to work)?

What are the advantages of an increase in the number of people working from home?

Identify an example of where people have lost jobs due to the introduction of computers.

Identify a situation where jobs have been created as a result of computer implementation.

Thanks for any help and sorry if any of those don't make sense, hopefully they do without any explanation :)

Prevents the burning of oil, which is adding to global warming.

The manufacturing of cars, now can be creating by machines run by computers, this meaning not as many jobs to be done manually by people...


Hope i helped a bit!

1. Less pollution, I guess :o
2. Same us number 1, and less traffic,... :o
3. Secretaries... Only the biggest bussiness companies now have them... :o
4. Programers, perhaps :o

That's what I could think of... :)

About the computers replacing people, you could refer to an earlier example such as the Industrial Revolution. This was a long time ago, but very relevant today.

That could be the answer for anyone needing to do their psychology homework :pi:
