Best Answer

Several negative effects come to mind:

1/ Prolonged use can affect your vision. I know several people who attribute their failing eyesight to spending long periods of time at the computer. When my wife quit her job, her vision actually improved, and she no longer needs to wear reading glasses !

2/ Unless regular breaks are taken and careful attention is paid to one's posture, RSI can result from prolonged use of the computer.

3/ In spite of the original claims that computers would save enormous quantities of paper, the opposite has been the case.

4/ (submitted by aforementioned wife) Can be detrimental to marriages, when partner becomes totally consumed by the machine !!!!!

That's a lie... cumputers are awesomee. ilovethemm. LOVE!
