Then we have wastefulness V.S. miserliness, if one person is always buying things without thinking about it and the other wants to save every penny, arguments are inevitable.

Success and fortune have been a downfall in the search for the American Dream. It has corrupted society’s ethics in all, family values and morals, and psychological well-being. In part to the fact that “The American Dream” and the way Americans wish to live can be unreachable by the average person. Society once was based on truth, passion, and liberty for all but now is a mere illusion, focusing on money, power and how to reach it; portraying materialism and wealth as the “American Dream” and self-actualization, as portrayed by Miller in Death of a Salesman. The American Dream came to mean fame and fortune, instead of a promise that shaped a nation.
Thanks to its rapid advancement, technology seeks its own benefits; it feeds itself with new innovation to grow exponentially. Moore's law predicted this decades ago by stating that processors would continue to get twice as capable every 18 months as fabricating more and more transistors on the same silicon wafer become possible. With the exception of electronics, no other trade has shown an exponential growth for such a prolonged period of time. Initially, technology was adopted to help businesses and as a source of entertainment. However, today technology dictates our lives.
Eventually, old products will be replaced. Samsung must come out with new product every year to maintain its position just like its opponent, Apple Inc. From year 2010 till now, they never fail to come out with a more advance, better and new devices for consumer’s needs with affordable price. Devices are such as phones, tablets, laptops, computer and recently introduced virtual reality. Customers have wide range of choice of technology to choose from. By doing this, Samsung can attract new customers and keep existing its existing customer from buying products from its rival.
We constantly thirst for better, faster, and easier technology to help us keep up with our lives. To what effect does this have on patience in society as a whole though? Perhaps man’s endless thirst for instant gratification has constantly fueled the improving of technologies over the years, and thus, has caused our patience and attention span to diminish. Computer hardware has seen one of the biggest leaps within the past twenty years. We are constantly coming out with faster, more powerful, more reliable computer processors with no plateau to improvement in sight.The recent Intel i7-4770k of 2013 can process information nearly eight times faster than the Intel Pentium Dual Core E5200 of 2008 according to cpubenchmark.net.
The new Apple product development program reflects a process of constant improvement, always having a new product coming out every twelve months with better performance each time. For Apple to be the number one in Tablet sales they have to perform at high level of quality, with better improved Tablets each time. To do this they are always updating their research to make a better iPad for its consumers. Apple never holds back on new product sales of old established product lines (The Apple Case Study, 2013). Their own greatest problem is competing with itself, by selling more of their own Apple products, such as the iPhone having more sales then iPads (The Apple Case Study, 2013).
Appearance is a key concept, for a salesman m... ... middle of paper ... ...ke to have a wrong American Dream at the first place, but it is Willy’s insatiable pursuit that ended him. “The desire to obtain such wealth became so intense for some that Merle Curti, author of The Growth of American Thought, calls it a “quest” that Americans embark upon as they seek out “material fortunes as ends in themselves” (Packer-Kinlaw 508).” Willy Loman is just one example of thousands of other Americans who are never going to be satisfied because of their desire to be successful. The tragedy of Willy Loman shows that because he never realizes what he already had, he never cherishes his family and things other than success. Willy Loman’s American Dream is distorted because of his lacking realization of hard work, and his obsession with money and fame. His concentration on the appearance caused most of his misunderstanding of success, and the end of him.
Now every home “needs a computer”. The Information Technology(IT) revolution has brought a lot of good. It has improved the way we communicate, storage and retrieval of information has never been easier, and we have new ways of learning, working, trading and enjoying ourselves. Technology brings benefits and prosperity to its users, but it leaves the under privileged behind, creating a “digital divide”. The digital divide is a term used to describe “the gap between those who have 'ever' and those who have 'never' used a computer or the internet” (Young, 2005).
Equality today is much different than it was during Lincoln’s days and it’s come a long way, but there is still a long way to go. To conclude, we have had a fair share of struggle to get America to where it is now. In a way we are a free country because of what these three men have sacrificed, but we will not continue this way if we do not keep striving for more. We have to set an example for new generation coming up and we have to let people know that the work our ancestors and people like Dr. King, Emmett, and Abraham did not work for nothing. The day will come when history might repeat itself, but we need to be prepared and ready so that when it appears we will not let our future return as our past.
A Brave New World depicts a very strange world that if thought about carefully seems eerily similar to the world we live in today. The main premise of this society is to keep everybody happy. "That is the secret of happiness and virtue-liking what you 've got to do. All conditioning aims at that: making people like their inescapable social destiny." With the rapid evolution of the 1st world in just the past 10 years and the addition of wireless internet, easily accessible media, and phones that have rapidly improved in such a short period of time.
