For my German essay, I chose to write about smart devices, also called the internet of things (IoT). Smart watches, smart TVs, smart plugs, smart lights, and other smart electronics are becoming increasingly hard to avoid as technology continues to advance exponentially. Having weighed the pros and cons of these devices, I wrote an essay mentioning the advantages and disadvantages. The use of smart devices can improve our lives and make them more convenient, but they come with several risks and downsides as well. There are several risks involved in this, including privacy concerns, security vulnerabilities, and potential health risks. To fully enjoy the benefits of technology without causing any negative consequences, we must strike a balance between the benefits and potential pitfalls.
