Technology is changing both mine and others people world every day. The speed at which technology is advancing is incredible. Technology has advanced at such a rapid pace that it is hard for it not to affect the lives of everyone including myself. It is almost a necessary for people to have iPods, Cell phones, Internet, etc. The list goes on and on of all the advancement through the recent years, and as the year’s progress that advancement seems to quicken to an even faster pace. This speed of technological advancement is almost too hard for me to keep up to and is changing my life in multiple ways.
For myself I have noticed that it is hard to keep up with almost anything. Because technology is advancing at such an amazing speed it is hard to learn how to do anything. For those who are not so technologically savvy learning how to operate a new piece of technology can be a huge struggle. Exceeding amounts of new advancements are complicated and confusing to operate. For many they struggle with how to turn a device on or how to work the device at all. Even some of what could be considered simple or easy to do can be hard. Many devices have many features and because of this it makes it hard for people to learn what all the features are and how to work all of them. Technology has moved so fast that there are many devices which I do not understand and have trouble understanding.
Another major issue with the rapid speed of technology is the amount of money spent by myself and my family. For My children they always feel that they need the newest this or that. It seems as if new game or music system comes out every other day and my children want it. This can be very difficult on parents because of the cost of these systems. Certain game and music systems can reach expensive prices and it seems as if the newer system comes out a little bit later anyway. Technology is moving so fast that I personally can be burdened to understand some forms of technology. It is almost a necessity to own or know how to use a form of modern technology. Many of things technological advancements that could be considered a necessity in today’s modern world also cost money. This is also another issue when it comes to the rapid speed of the advancement of technology.
Technology is changing my world and everyone around me. Technology has been both useful, and expensive. With all good things there is also a downside. Technology will continue to advance and become more complicated and as it does it will also help our world in many new and amazing ways!
