Everyone wants new technology, right? Well, maybe not everyone. I guess it depends on your age and your personality. Personally, I love new stuff. My phone is the latest technology out there (it was released this year), my computer is fairly up-to-date (I think), and even though my car isn’t very modern in terms of looks or features, it’s still fairly new to me (and high tech). If you’re like me then you probably want the latest technology for everything that you own – from your clothes to your kitchen appliances. And if you don’t want all of the new stuff out there, then at least try to keep up with trends so that it doesn’t look like you are stuck in the old days!
One thing that has changed over time is how we view technology – from when people were scared of it as a “fad” in the 1980s and 90s to now where people love having a mobile phone with them at all times. I think cloud gaming might be the next trend for people to get more comfortable with. This is where you don’t need a physical disc or cartridge to play a game; instead, you can download the game and play it on your phone, tablet, or PC (or whatever device) via the internet. Of course there are disadvantages to this method of gaming – mostly because it’s dependent on your Internet connection (which can be slow sometimes). However, most people do have some sort of access to WiFi these days (even if it’s slow), so that shouldn’t really be an issue in my opinion.
Another thing about technology is that people try to make their life easier using new devices and gadgets. For example, there are apps like Waze which tell you what traffic will look like based on real-time information from other drivers around you. You can also use apps like Google Maps to help you find your way around. These apps are very helpful, especially when you’re lost on a road trip.
Technology is something that everyone uses in some capacity – from social media to banking to shopping. It’s really hard for people who don’t use technology, but it’s possible if they want it enough! I know there are a lot of people out there who still do all of their shopping the old-fashioned way (in-store) because they don’t trust the online stores or mobile apps and websites. I think this is strange because there are so many benefits! Online stores give you more selection than any physical store could ever have, and they usually have lower prices too. In fact, Amazon has even been criticized for having such low prices that brick-and-mortar shops might not be able to compete at all anymore! Of course Amazon isn’t the only one with low prices – Target has great deals as well (plus free shipping!). I’ve noticed a lot of my friends going from physical shopaholics to online shopaholics over time. I can’t say that I blame them!
Technology is a fascinating subject and one that will continue to change for years to come. And although some people might be afraid of it, there are others who embrace it and love all of the new technology out there. Personally, I’m one of those people! Technology has made my life so much easier in so many ways – especially when it comes to going shopping! Imagine having to drive down the street or go into a store just to buy something small; now you don’t have to do that because you can just order online and pay for your product online too (and sometimes even get free shipping)! That’s what I call convenience.
Take advantage of the latest trends in technology and try new things like cloud gaming or mobile apps. Cloud gaming is probably the most convenient way of playing video games (in my opinion), but not everyone is OK with using their Internet connection as “storage space” for games they haven’t even played yet – this may take some getting used to.
Technology is constantly evolving, and it will continue to evolve for many years to come. I hope you enjoyed reading this post, and that it was helpful!
