Talking to parents means highlighting nothing but the cons of modern-day technology. According to them, today’s kids are sluggish because of the ease that technology introduced in their lives. Well, they are partially right because kids these days hardly go outdoors to play. However, what they fail to understand is that evolution in technology has also facilitated their lives and made it better l.
Here are ways in which technology gave us all the lifestyle that we are enjoying in the modern-day.
Ways to Communicate
I cannot imagine a minute without my spectrum mobile plan. Who else can relate? Thanks to the ever-evolving technology, communication is easier than it was back in the 70s or 80s. However, the introduction of mobile phones and later affordable packages was just the beginning of it. If you come to think of it now, there was a time when making a call in a foreign land was very expensive. However, with the introduction of social media, you did not have to rely on making pricey calls.
Moreover, WhatsApp ensured that every call is free as long as you have access to the Internet. Video chatting, voice calls, and even group meetings are easier to carry out remotely. And at a lesser price. Not only these ways of communication allowed individuals to save costs but they also facilitate instant communication.
Perhaps the most innovative of all these communication evolutions was the introduction of call and messaging features in smartwatches. Hence, allowing you to communicate conveniently while you do chores.
Ways to Transfer Money and Pay Bills
Next time your parents bash you about relying too much on technology, tell them to not make their payments online. Because they fail to understand that they are using technology for their benefit as much as the kids are. Anyway, coming back to the point. You no longer have to go to an outlet physically to pay the bills. Instead, online payment is a popular trend. Whether it is your electricity bill, your Spectrum mobile phone bill, or the bill that you received from Sephora, everything can get paid for using online payment and money transfer methods.
However, some people are reluctant to use these methods as they fear that the hackers might get hold of their personal information. But as technology is evolving, more ways to protect your information are also coming out. Moreover, Google Wallet and Apple Pay help ensure that you do not have to carry your wallet every time you go shopping. Isn’t that great?
Ways to Read
If you happen to be someone who loves reading, then you would be familiar with Kindle. Not only Kindle but you will also be familiar with the many websites that allow you to read books online. Thus, saving you the money that you would have otherwise spent purchasing those novels. Technology changed how you read. As you no longer have to take care of the many books that you have. Moreover, finding a storage space for those books is also not an issue anymore.
Ways to Listen to Music
There was a time when you had to carry those huge walkmans and CD players to listen to your favorite songs while traveling or doing any other chores. However, things changed when iPods came out. The introduction of those sleek music hearing devices meant that you no longer have to carry heavier ones. Moreover, you did not have to carry cassettes and CDs with you to listen to music. That was the most inconvenient of things to do.
Other than that, the introduction of platforms including Apple Music, and Spotify also added to the convenience. However, these platforms come with a price. But it is not too much.
Ways to Watch TV
The most recent innovation in technology is the way that you watch TV. Gone are the days when you had to rely on mere cable TV channels. Now, you can even choose to connect any of your devices with the TV and mirror the screen. Thus, watching whatever you are online on the TV as well.
Smart TVs are becoming more popular as people love the new way to watch TV. Other than that, streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Prime also helped revolutionize the TV watching experience for people across the globe.
Not only do the new TVs come with built-in Wi-Fi options but they also provide far better picture quality than before. Hence, allowing you to get a theater-like experience at home. I relish watching the Waco cable channels on my Smart TV too.
How did technology change the way you are living your current lives. Do you think it is for the better? Let us know in the comments.
