Technology really is quite a wondrous thing. Technology has so changed the way people live and do business that it has become an essential component of our being. On an average, each person has one modern or smart gadget in his possession at a given time. Gadgets have been defined as ‘the devices that have “funky” designs and can perform one or more functions’. Technology and gadgets are helpful in shaping our day-to-day lives; we have these devices to help in getting things done easier and faster and for a select few, for the thrill and fascination they give in terms of novelty and uniqueness.
So, how modern is your technology?
Technology has changed from a luxury to a necessity in the modern world of today. Laptops, iPods, notebooks, and other gadgets are luxuries we use every single day without really giving it a second thought. I recently discovered that in most cases, what is called modern technology is technically not so “new”. Case in point, the mobile phone. Its technology has evolved over the years and nowadays we use smartphones which have been an advancement of an ordinary mobile phone. Modern technology is therefore simply an advancement of old technology.
The impact of technology in modern life is immeasurable because we use technology in many different ways. It is said that “Information is power and knowledge is key” and those who find information and use it well always succeed. Being knowledgeable about technology and gadgets is helpful, and with smart gadgets like the iPad, iPhone, galaxy tablet amongst many others, you can easily have access to information through these smart gadgets because they use the internet.
One question that still remains is: does the modern world of the 21st century place too much reliance on technology?
