Lots of industries now use computers to help perform certain tasks.

Motor Industry

In the motor industry computers do jobs which humans dislike doing, such as welding the car bodies together or spraying them with paint. This has meant that robots have replaced workers' jobs however.


Retail Industry

The growth of shopping websites has meant that a lot of people now shop online at home instead of travelling to actual shops in town centres. Some of these real shops have been forced to close down as people find it easier and more convenient to order goods, like presents, from the comfort of their own home.

Banks

In the banking industry, computers have enabled debit cards to be used to withdraw money from cash machines when the banks are closed.
