These allow people to perform tasks much easier than before.  A lot of these technologies empower not only people but organizations whether private or government.  These not only offer them savings in terms of resources, but offer other benefits as well.

Surveillance Technologies

While it is true that there are criminal acts which remain undetected; undeniably, modern surveillance gadgets have improved and deterred or curbed criminal activities.  Surveillance cameras installed in traffic lights and other strategic locations have helped monitor and apprehend traffic violators and criminals. A lot of minor law enforcement violations were solved because of these gadgets.  In addition, it helped people to become conscious with regards to following law enforcement rules as they are aware that there are tools which monitor their activities.

Personal Computers

When personal computers elevated to graphic user interface, a lot of improvements have been evident.

These enable people to work on more sophisticated tasks like editing pictures and movies or creating animations or new programs, to name some.  These things have only one objective in mind: to improve the way we do things.

Cellular Phones

Android technologies do not only improve the way cell phones are used.  Mobile gadgets nowadays allow people not only to text and call but do things which they can normally only do through their desktops or laptops such as gaming, going online, and performing other computing activities.  Today, you’ll see people tinkering with handheld gadgets and playing “Angry Birds,” monitoring their social networking pages, opening their emails, receiving feeds from subscription websites, and listening or watching audio and video for relaxation.

Memory Card Holder

Floppy disks and CDs are now a thing of the past, thanks to USB gadgets which offer more storage capacity than their previous memory holder tool counterparts.  Not only are people able to carry with them huge files, they can also store multiple formats such as audio and video on top of office files such as Word, Excel, Access, and Powerpoint.  Whereas before USB, people have to carry a lot of diskettes and CD ROM with them if they want to bring along computer files.  Today, with a 64GB USB gadget, you can even copy the whole file that you need in your desktop and bring it along with you anywhere you go.

5 Technologies that Make me Powerful

When my mother was still alive, she used to call on me and ask for help when it comes to encoding her research notes and performing other computer related stuff.  She was a technologically challenged. She refused adapting to new trends and methods.  Every time she sought my assistance, I always feel that I have greater power over her.  Lucky for me, I have grown to witness and experience technological changes and it bestows me power to deal with my daily life.  Here are 5 technologies that made my life and job run smoothly:

Personal Computer

My first intimate encounter with computers was about a decade ago.  I studied basic computer and I did not finish the course as I find lessons like memorizing the control keys and other important shortcut keys boring.  Then I got employed where all reports are to be encoded in computer and print.  I did overtime daily to learn more about computers.  I was fortunate then that computers were already in graphic user interface mode; thus, it was easy to use and navigate. From then on, I realized that expanding my skills with computers gave me professional reports, presentation, and even won my colleagues attention as they too sought my help.

Cellular Phones

When these were first introduced, they were really expensive and bulky; the battery and charger was bigger than the cell phone itself.  Over the years, cellular phones have become more sophisticated in features and functions.  These hand held gadgets have contributed so much for my job.  I can easily get the information I want in seconds and within my fingertips.  I could solve problems ASAP without going through the rigors of protocol.  More importantly, I was liberated from the tyrannical behaviors of local telephone operators who thought that it was a privilege passing through them.

Net book

I got my very own notebook about a year ago.  I did not own this kind of stuff before as I have more important priorities to spend on. Now, I do not have to use Internet cafes to log online and view electronic files.  I can make reports and communicate while on the plane, boat, or bus. I can even attend to my online article writing job and earn more money.

USB Memory Holder

Thank God for this little object.  I own a 32G USB memory storage device and I can bring all the files I need every time I travel around the country.  I do not need to use online file storage services and keep my files confidential. Together with my net book, I can monitor and update my files and data for my business 24/7.  I do not need to maintain multiple disks; just this single little thing is enough to secure my data into secrecy.

LED TV

Think about doing two things at the same time.  This technology has allowed me to watch my favorite TV show and at the same time use it as my computer monitor.  With the help of VGA connectors and the remote control, I cannot miss anything on TV and in my computers.

In time, new technologies will be introduced and will give me more power and so I wait for that day!
