Technology is something that is a part of lives every single day. We don’t even realize how many things we rely on in our day to day lives now that are available to us because of a technology-filled world.
Obviously, I use technology every day in my business. I use my laptop, the internet, and my cell phone daily. We all do at some point in a day, right? That right there is technology.
Our devices like Amazon Echo for Alexa and Google home is technology. We can even turn our lights on and on off in our homes now with technology. That’s just crazy!
Do you remember growing up watching the cartoon the Jetsons, and thinking we’d have flying cars when we grew up? While that’s not true, we do however have self-driving cars. Pittsburgh, where I live, has been experimenting with self-driving Uber cars for a while now.
There are many more examples of how we live in a technology world.
Our televisions use more modern technology than they used to. We have cable (no more rabbit ear antenna), we even have DVRs. The fact that we can pause, rewind, and fast forward a television show is remarkable if you really stop to think about it. It’s television on our schedule, not the other way around.
Some people turn their love and fascination with technology into a career. This is exactly what Sean Seshadri did. Mr. Seshadri discovered his passion for computers when he was in high school. During his mandatory studies, he stumbled upon an information technology class. After only a few weeks, he realized that programming is something he is undoubtedly great at. His professors took notice of his talents and helped him learn advanced skills. Eventually, he was able to create entire websites and programs from scratch before even graduating high school.
My uncle went to school for computer technology when computers were first making it big in the corporate world. Do you know the first programmable computer was developed in the 1830s? The Navy developed a computer in 1838 that was small enough to use aboard a submarine. Think of how far they’ve come since then.
Technology also is a big part of our healthcare now. As you can imagine with our numerous medical problems my husband and I have substantial medical charts at our doctor's offices. Stop and think about it, when was the last time you saw a doctor actually carry your paper chart into your exam room? For us, all of our medical records are stored on the computer and the medical staff just logs in and can access them. We stay with the same healthcare network when we see a specialist. By staying within the same network, any test results and doctor’s notes along with medications can be seen by any doctor by just viewing your chart.
Even our kitchen appliances use technology now. Some of them are wi-fi and voice-enabled, allowing you to control your kitchen appliances remotely — from changing settings to checking the status, or turning on or off.
What are some of your favorite ways that technology helps your day to day life?
