The tech age is not going anywhere. And we’re quite happy with that. Thanks to technology we’re living in a world of connectivity, where the click of a button can cross a million miles. Yes, there are many great uses for tech, but how does it impact our daily lives?
In this post we’ll have a look at eight interesting uses of technology. Let’s jump right in.
1. Vehicle for Communication
This is probably the most obvious one we’ll mention here. Before we had smartphones and tablets, we either had to use the landline or write telegrams and letters to loved ones. Now, we can use email, social media and quick text apps to stay in touch with family and friends.
2. Go-To for Entertainment
If you think of entertainment, you probably think about Netflix, movies, YouTube. All of these are not offered on the same vehicle of tech but all of them share the same thing; they are a source of entertainment. Whether you enjoy driving to the cinema or watching video clips on YouTube, thanks to technology you can do so!
3. Managing Our Homes
The internet of things has given birth to a new way of living. We live in a time where we can set our appliances and security systems up without even being at home. Some appliances even allow you to do your shopping. Thanks to technology, our lives are a whole lot easier.
4. Our Go-To for Traveling
In the past you’d have to go to a travel agent to plan and book an overseas trip. Nowadays everyone can be their travel agent simply by using the web to book your flight and accommodation. The internet is filled to the brim with loads of travel and booking companies, all ready to make your booking.
5. Education at our Fingertips
Before we had the internet, we had encyclopaedias and the library. Nowadays, if you want to learn a new language or do some research on a topic or history, you do it via the internet. Thanks to technology, education is freely available to everyone who can access it.
6. It’s Our Ultimate Time-Manager
Gone are the days of keeping a calendar and writing down notes about important dates. We look to our Google Calendars and sync it with all our other applications to know what is happening when, where, and what time. We have private assistants in the palm of our hands thanks to tech.
7. It’s a Source of Transportation
This is not quite in the same league as any of the uses here, but still a great one to mention. Thanks to springs, we can travel and commute. Did you know that springs are one of the key things when it comes to cars and other forms of transportation?
8. It Helps us Manage our Finances
Thanks to internet and card-less banking solutions, we can now manage our finances from our phones, tablets or laptops. Make payments, receive payments, buy groceries, you name it, you can do it. It sure beats spending a day at the bank taking care of business!
Tech brings a lot of joy to our daily lives. But it also has its place. Developers and product managers are constantly looking at ways to develop and enhance certain products and software to improve our lives. We need to know how to use it correctly.
