Is Technology Making Our Lives Easier, Or Too Easy?
Technology Improvement – Since the announcement of the iPhone 5S and its new fingerprint password technology, I have been noticing just how much technology is constantly improving. The latest news from Apple is that they are expecting a huge order for the iPhone 5S and are planning on taking it to the next step – creating an iPhone version that is thicker and heavier than the current iPhone version. But is this device really that much of an upgrade from the iPhone version that we have now?
Surely, when the first iPhone version was first released, I would agree that it was a year or two old. However, I am finding that I am much more likely to upgrade my iPhone 5S to the latest version, and my concern is not only with what I am currently using, but also what I plan on using in the future.
So, now that I’ve clicked my pen to the next generation of iPhone, what can I expect to use it for? Well, speculation is running rampant as to what I would really use an iPhone for, after all, our gadgets so far have been progressing so fast, it’s hard to keep up with it.
Now, I am no computer expert, but I am quite sure that within the next month or two, we will know for sure what I should be using my precious new toy. But in the meantime, I plan on using it to surf the net, I love checking out site reports and news from across the globe, and I like to do my finance shopping and mostly do my business online.
So, with the regularity of my business trips, I will be purchasing my iPhone in the commute and my laptop when I know I will need it. I know that it is hard to get used to a new model so quickly, but I am really enthralled by the technology and love to learn about new things.
Of course, I will be buying it refurbished so that I know what real “new” means. And I already have a big list of things that I have to list:
• iPhone – sure, I’m a Mac fan boy and will buy the Mac in a second. Doesn’t matter what other brands people want me to buy, including the name brand I buy the iPhone because I can’t think of a better phone. Why? I have no money to buy a new phone. iPhone, LG Cell, Blackberry, Android, Nokia, Microsoft, Sony, Nokia, HTC, Palm, anyone and everything else but Apple. Technology Improvement
• Mac – I’ve said this before but I love the fact that I can get the computer that I’ve fallen in love with so much, without having to fry my brain by changing jets every time I fly to visit family and friends. I love feeling settled and guide myself easily to the information I need.
• divide and conquer
As long as technology keeps dividing us into categories, I will take whatever sexual advance I want without feeling self conscious or guilty. If you can have a smoothies color printer in the kitchen that prints perfect sizes andotine to-fit-your-habits-customer’s-1950’s-berry- pulsating-berry-cutter television, I will take that technological marvel andgorithm anyplace I possibly can.
On a scale of 1 to 10, 10 would mean perfection, and that’s how important it is for me. I don’t even care what other people think about my purchases, as long as I feel in control of my life and my destiny in it. Technology Improvement
There’s really only one thing that I turn to; the word of the streets, and it’s people who do things with their hands that I can take to mean that I have the opportunity to lead a life of significance and that my life won’t be controlled by technology. Technology Improvement
Did you know that 81% of the people live in urban areas? The way technology havocs our lives and our expectations, I suspect that this number will go down and drop further still. Already we see that people between the ages of 16 and 24 are spending more time using laptops and sometimes even iPads and other touchscreen devices then when they did before.
Wouldn’t it make more sense and save energy and money to use these possessions, and not leave them unused and hanging? The productivity losses alone can be enormous. Does it really make sense that we ruin our businesses and environment and then walk around feeling like the loss of our most precious is going to permanently Doom?
I propagate and embrace new technology because I firmly believe that the future of our children lies in it. I believe that kids should be playing video games, not listening to music, watching movies, and enjoyingoot Fetable social media accounts; not listening to music, playing video games, watching movies, and using their real names online.
