Technology and you
If somebody asked you to define or explain the word 'technology', what would your answer be? Would you even know where to begin? In today's day and age, technology is a big thing; continually improving and ever expanding, it is prevalent in our everyday lives. Now you may be of the belief that technology is just computers, machinery and equipment; wrong! Technology is so much more than that. It is an idea; a way of making a change; a way of ensuring continued development and progression within society. Speaking in plain terms, it's downright amazing.
Have you ever asked yourself where you would be without technology? Consider the following situation. You've woken up late as you didn't set the alarm - what a great way to start the day! You stumble around in the darkness, hoping you've buttoned your shirt up correctly for work and that your morning meeting is delayed; that'll at least give you time for a coffee. You proceed to the kitchen to pick up your mobile, only to find you're out of charge - damn, you knew there was something you'd forgotten to do. You have no option but to continue on your way to work, charger in tow.
Once out of the door and half way to work, you further realise the memory stick with your presentation on is still sat on your bedside table. You groan, inwardly and outwardly. You're going to have to revert to using a flip board and pen now; bang goes that fancy slideshow. In fact, one look at the traffic and bang goes your morning meeting. With no phone charge, you can't even call ahead to let anybody know where you are and why you're not in work yet. Just great.
Technology is such a large part of our everyday lives; in general, we've come to rely on our gadgets and devices being there all the time and quite simply working for us at the touch of a button. For many it is a culture shock to experience life without it, for example, if their laptop breaks they find themselves feeling lost, or if holidaying in a no signal area they are in a state of disarray. How on earth are you to complete your daily activities without technology? With difficulty is the answer.
No doubt we're all agreed that technology has a large impact on our lives. It is for this reason you should always ensure you take good care of your devices and look after them. Think back to the situation above; do you really want to end up living as if in the dark ages, pining after your working devices? Take action today to protect your technology. It might just be the best thing you ever did.
