Why Technology Changes The Way We Do Things

“Why technology is changing the way we do things.” The reason why most of the people around the world have a good understanding of computers, cell phones, GPS devices, and many more technological items is because they are familiar with them. Many of them have even owned or at least used them at some point of their lives. Why is it that most of these people have great knowledge about technology, when in fact it is not the things that they use on a daily basis that are changing the world but rather how they use it. Why is it that they understand why technology is changing and why the people who are not technologically savvy seem to be unaware of what is going on?

The reason why people are so familiar with technology, is because it forces them to use it. If you go into any part of the world, no matter what part of the world it is, if you have access to a computer or cell phone, you will find that you will use it for both work and pleasure. Most of us have become so dependent on the things that make our lives easier and that we take for granted that we really don’t realize how reliant we are. In fact, there are more people alive today that depend on their technology than those that live without it.

This dependence on technology is nothing new. Since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, humankind has been fascinated with machines have always been a part of daily life. Things such as watches and clocks were used to keep time and communicate important information. Even though many people now make their watches stopwatches and stopcocks, the fascination with machines continues. People take pride in having their gadgets working properly and with accuracy.

With the birth of the internet and online shopping, the global marketplace has made things much more convenient and easier to purchase. In the process of purchasing things we now can carry around with us, we have lost some of the things that made life simpler and easier. Many of us no longer have to go and see a brick-and-mortar bookstore to purchase books or even pay for physical media such as DVD’s and CDs.

We have become so attached to the convenience of our cell phones, MP3 players, laptops and other electronic gizmos that we almost feel guilty when we don’t have them. We feel as though technology has taken over our lives and we have little time for things that don’t involve technology. Some of us still like to read books, watch films and go out for entertainment. In the past we had to rely on things such as radio and television. All of these things require the use of technology.

The popularity of cell phones has created another problem for society. Although cell phones have increased in popularity and are actually considered a necessity, many people don’t have any use for them. Some people simply do not own cell phones because they feel that the benefits of using one outweigh the disadvantages. While cell phones have become more useful, many people still don’t have one. They are considered a status symbol and many teenagers don’t own cell phones. It’s no wonder then that technology is becoming an even bigger force in our lives.

We live in a society where information and communication are required for most tasks. Things such as the internet, social networking and email have made the world a much smaller place. We have to rely on technology for most things. This means that we are often forced to learn more about technology than we would otherwise like to. We are also forced to use it, because communication technology is so convenient.

There are plenty of reasons as to why technology is forcing us into a state of addiction. It’s convenient, saves time and allows us to be a lot more mobile. All of these things add up to make life difficult. But we need to remember that the convenience doesn’t have to be bad.
