Unit 4

  2. The first paragraph about the consequences of living a virtual life and the last tells about the author’s return to it. Together, they show us the dilemma people at present are in: Because of modern technology, we have a choice between a real life and virtual life, but we find both unsatisfactory. The author, however, finally has to choose the latter despite its negative effects.

Translation
Perhaps you envy me for being able to work from home on the computer. I agree that the Internet has made my job a lot easier. I can write, submit and edit articles via email, chat with my colleagues on line and discuss work with my boss. With a click of the mouse, I can get all the data I need and keep up with the latest news. But then, communicating through the Net can be frustrating at times. The system my crash. Worse still, without the emotional cues of face-to-face communication, the typed words sometimes seem difficult to interpret.
