Technology Has Changed Our Lives for All Time

Here are other things that have changed ever since technology has been introduced to the world:

  1. People do not send greeting cards and letters anymore. Greeting cards used to be something that is sent by people every time there are special occasions but right now, greetings can be done through social media sites. There are also some online greeting cards but it is not the same with the normal greeting cards that come with personalized letters.
  2. Dating right now has also changed because of technology. People used to meet each other the old fashioned way wherein they would talk about the place and the time when they will meet and probably call each other through land line. If someone is late, the other person who is waiting has no way of knowing if the person would actually arrive. Also, a lot of people now are meeting through online dating websites.
  3. The way that we watch television has already changed so much. In the past, people would always be in black and white. When the shows started appearing in colored form, people were ecstatic. Right now, you can connect your television to the internet as well as the various websites that will allow you to watch different shows. The television experience is not the same with how it used to be.
  4. There was a time when you need to go to the library and rent all the books that you will be allowed to get but right now, you can use any of your gadgets like your smartphone, tablet and even your Kindle and download the books that you like. The best thing is that some of the e-books can be downloaded for a minimized price too as compared to actual softbound and hardbound books.
  5. Sharing information right now is considered to be easier because there are different websites wherein sharing is easy. No need to meet up with a friend just to share stories and there is no need to print pictures as well so you will have a remembrance of your trip. You can share things digitally and printing is optional if you want to keep the pictures.

Can you still think of other things that have been changed by technology? You may have other ideas that we will be glad to hear.

How Technology Impacts Our Lives

Have you ever sat down and thought about how technology shapes our lives? Come to think of it, we never would have imagined that technology would have had such a huge impact on our lives. We never would have thought that it would have evolved so fast. Well, it really has changed everyone’s life no matter what age group or gender it is. In the modern era, everything due to advancement is available easily no matter what sector it is.

How Technology Impacts Our Lives

The positives:

  • There are several advantages of technology. Technology has entirely changed the way we live and spend our lives. We can see an overwhelming change in automobile industries where firstly cars used to get started by a self-starter but now it is just a button to press and we are good to go.
  • Technology has also played a very noticeable part in the global political environment. It has impacted politics by advancing international relations and communications between states. Mark Dubowitz, executive director of Foundation for Defense of Democracies, is an expert on sanctions against Iran and discusses about the current ties with Iran as well as the role different parties and components are playing in the current situation. He also plays an important role in countering threat finance, and there is no doubt in the fact that technology has helped him reach out in a much better way.
  • 3D and 4D printing is so common these days that can be done easily within the vicinity of our homes.
  • Additionally, computers and robots are replacing the labor force and gradually it will devastate the labor completely.
  • Palm handheld software are used not only in games and computers but are also used in kitchens where timer can be set, temperature can be checked and among all, all sort of recipes can be taken to cook food.
  • Smart phones are also loaded with health applications where we can check our blood pressure, sugar level, foot steps taken etc; in short all the health related stuff in just one application which can give us an idea about our fitness.
  • Furthermore, we come across solar panels that produce electricity through sunlight which is yet again a huge accomplishment in the field of technology.
  • We can also see how the teaching method is also changing with the passing time where students tend to learn more on computers. Teachers instead of teaching on black/white boards make students learn on individual tablets.

The negatives:

  • We have always heard that things which have advantages also carry disadvantages. The biggest disadvantage of technology these days is that people have become entirely dependent on it. This means if any machine or computer stops working, people think they cannot afford to do the work by putting human effort into it. Technology has basically made human beings very idle. As humans we cannot even think of spending a day without our cellphones, laptops, internet etc.
  • Another big disadvantage of technology is that machines have largely replaced the human workforce which has ultimately led to unemployment. There is no doubt that machines work faster than human beings but the labor force has lost its value in the modern era.

The existence of technology has made life easier as well as complicated. The level of dependency in people has been increased as compared to older people. Keeping in mind both the advantages and disadvantages of technology people should keep a balance in using it.
