Technology is everywhere and it surrounds us. It has always been an integral part of our lives, helping us through the day with ease. As the day progresses, whether you are in your office or watching your favourite show at home, there is someone out there inventing new technology and is constantly, upgrading old technology into a better and more effective tool.

Marvelled by the advancements of technology and I always wonder how far can we precede ourselves? Will we see flying cars in the near future? For all the years that we lived, We should grateful for the people who have worked and sacrificed so much for the betterment of humanity.

Wonder how technology has helped us throughout the years? Well, I know you can vouch for yourself the convenience of online purchasing of food, clothes and appliances. These have helped us save countless time and effort. Also, is it not relaxing to kick back on a Sunday while your smart robot vacuum cleans the house and thanking whoever created this little piece of machinery.

How about those cartoons you used to watch back in the day? Back then everything was sketched by hand, frame by frame and movement by movement. It takes days or probably weeks to produce a few minutes of animation of your favourite cartoon character. Times have changed and programs such as Adobe were developed. Animators are far more efficient and now spend considerably less time animating.

So.. How Important Is It to Keep Up with Technology?

Improved Quality of Life

Technology exists to make our lives convenient. Inventions such as smart phones have thousands of available applications that help us get through the day without hassle. Hungry? An abundance of options awaits you at just a few clicks away! Besides smart phones, technology helped us more than you realise. For instance, for the majority of us that resides in HDB flats, the lifts that we have has had an impact in our lives far more than we realise. All of this is not possible without technology.

Better Opportunities

Currently, most companies requires you to have knowledge of basic programs like Microsoft Office. Without the acquisition of these skills, there is a likelihood that you may not be where you are now. Applications developed today allows you to interact with people who share the same interests while some allow you to network and get professionally acquainted.

Awareness

With technology, it has never been easier for us to keep up with current affairs. Access to information has allowed us to tap into news sources and articles. It has allowed us to be aware of foreign affairs that conventionally we might think has zero impact in our lives.
Technology has even brought us social media, which have allowed us to interact with people we never thought possible. The power of social media has been so tremendous that we as people, are more connected to one another now than we have ever been in our entire human history.

On the contrary of technology being man-made, it waits for no man. Technology is ever changing and at a very fast pace. It is inevitable.
