We are currently living in technological revolution era. World leading companies compete among each other on developing new gadgets for consumer to amuse oneself: 3D television, Wii and iPod are great examples of such products. Entertainment became the biggest consumer of our time. People tend to be drawn to new and exciting technologies. In my opinion, such favoritism also applies to heroes of all times.

Heroes relevant to technological progress might have a better chance to leave their mark on the society of current time, but no good deed should been done under condition of perpetual recognition.

Word Hero in Oxford dictionary means "a person who is idolized for courage or noble qualities", that being said, we can admire one for extraordinary abilities today, but we cannot guarantee to remember one forever.

Hello ogml23,
ogml23We are currently living in technological the revolutionary era of technology. World leading All of the world's leading companies compete have been competing among each other on themselves in developing new gadgets for consumer to amuse oneself: 3D television, Wii and iPod are great examples of such products.the amusement of their consumers. For instance, they have already invented 3-D televisions, Wii and iPod. Entertainment became has become the biggest consumer of our daily times. (or, I'd prefer to say - We have been spending most of our daily times for entertainment)
To ogml23, please note that this is not an absolute correction of your essay (I might have made some grammatical mistakes too). I am merely sharing my opinions in making your essay soundsbetter (i hope so). So, I have paraphrased some of your sentences and added a few words. I truly hope that you wouldn't mind about it. Emotion: happy

p.s :no offence, Emotion: zip it, but to be honest, I couldn't really understand the relevancy between "hero" and "technology". I'd be grateful if ogml23 (or anyone) could help in explaining this further to me.

p.s : welcome to EnglishForward, ogml23! [<:o)]

ogml23Word Hero in Oxford dictionary means "a person who is idolized for courage or noble qualities",
I'd prefer to say it this way - As stated in the Oxford Dictionary, the word "hero" literally means "....."

This is merely a personal preference. he he. Emotion: stick out tongue

Hi Red Guitar,
Thank you very much for correction of my essay. It sounds much better now. This is a first essay i ever written in English, so please forgive me for so manny mistakes. I was trying to relate technology to remembrance of heros, (I needed to answer following question " Are there some heroes who will be remembered forever") in a way that technology=distraction=forgetfulness of heroes. Perhaps, it's not the best analogy.
Frankly, after reading it again today i realized that its makes no sense at all...

Hello,

You're most welcome, ogml23! "Are there some heroes who will be remembered forever?". So, actually, you don't really have to talk about technology in this essay, right? If I were you, I won't write this essay from a negative point of view. I mean, instead of talking about things that will make us forget the legends of our heroes, I'd talk about things that will help us in remembering them. For instance:
  • keep on teaching historical studies at school
  • make more educational documentaries based on history
BUT, I guess, the only heroes that will be forever remembered are those superheroes of Marvell comic books. It's been so many years now since Marvel first published their comic books, but I dare to say that most of still remember Superman, Batman, Spiderman and more. He he, just kidding, my friend! Emotion: big smile
