How Technology Makes Our Lives Easier

The Internet

  • In the beginnings there were the  nerds: The Internet allowed people to share information with other people.
  • Then came colleges and universities: Students and faculty were able to share information.
  • Then businesses used them for business: Businesses were able to share information with employees
  • Then marketers used them for marketing: Then the internet became a one way street
  • Then came Social Media … or should we say came back: This allowed people to share  information with other people.

Technology has evolved

Do you remember when…

  • There were only land lines, if you got lost you had to find a pay phone
  • The first mobile phone had a bag, cord, and battery that weighed more than a brick
  • Head sets were big clunky things that had cords

Do you remember when…

  • Computers used to fill entire rooms
  • The word processor replaced the typewriter
  • Data storage took up rooms
  • Mobile computers were huge

Do you remember when…

  • Only professionals had cameras
  • You only took pictures of special occasions
  • They came out with color film
  • When digital eliminated the need for film

Do you remember when….

  • You had to write a letter by hand
  • Put it in an envelope
  • Put it in the mailbox
  • Wait for it to be delivered by… Pony Express, UPS… talk about snail mail!

Now we have the Smart Phone, which can really do everything above and so much more! Not only are their apps that can control your home or car, baby monitors that call you, a ton of business options, navigation, but they can now work as your computer!

So where are we heading?

    Thank you and enjoy the technology we have today!
