Technology: It is all around us and the form it takes is ever changing.
A large percentage of everyday items are now controlled by a computer and bring promise to make our lives both easier and more efficient than before.
Tech brings joy to our lives in so many ways; look at the way we store our online personalities.
A series of tweets informing the world of the latest events in your real world story, a collection of heavily filtered photos of what you’ve eaten and then the string of unflattering selfies you have sent to your friends.
Could you imagine a world without the tech that makes storing your life in such a unique way possible? These seem like a distant memory and much darker times to our generation. See: 2018 Technology Use.
In modern society, you can easily divide people up with their attitudes towards Tech. These include the technophiles (those who focus on the benefits of technology), the technophobes (those who fear new technologies) and those who are indifferent (the middle ground).
These groups can also be generally classed by age with younger generations slanting towards technophiles and the older generations moving towards technophobia.
The Benefits of New Technology
New devices being released has opened up many jobs and businesses, such as phone repair shops, retailers for new phones and sales assistants. One of the best and most successful Android repair shops in London is Square Repair.
They can repair a range of devices such as iPhone’s, Samsung’s and OnePlus’. Take a look at this page to see how they carry out their OnePlus 5 screen repairs.
What is it that makes people both obsessed and opposed to Tech?
Speaking as a self-described technophile, I have a desire for the latest and greatest device. It has a certain appeal in that it can do more for me, and occasionally it’s a talking point with people.
Isn’t that what new tech is supposed to be for? Helping you in ways that you didn’t even know you needed help in and connecting you with others? See top 10 technology breakthroughs.
New devices and technologies should be seen as friend, not foe, and we shouldn’t be afraid of them. I’m not saying everyone should have the same feelings and opinions as me, how boring would that be?
I am merely saying that just look at all the ways it makes your life easier; just think about the crippling pain your hands are spared from by writing those several thousand word essays on a computer and how you can organise your real world social life in a virtual world.
