Today's technology changes so quickly that it can be hard to keep up with the latest gadgets on the market, let alone understand how the different technologies behind the products work. In fact, some suggest that computers and technology have changed our lives to the extent that our society is technology-obsessed, and becoming all too reliant on the convenience of everything from cell phones to laptops and online banking. But, these technologies do make our lives easier; so let's talk about some of the best tech out there.
Cell phones, smartphones and PDAs have changed the way at least 80 percent of the way the planet communicates. Not only do we use our cell phones to send and receive calls from all over the world, we rely on SMS texting to keep in constant contact with our friends, family, workplaces and services we use every day. Our communication patterns have changed so much that we've become accustomed to being able to browse the Internet, shop, talk, text, email, take pictures and access our favourite websites, all from our cell phones. Some of the most prominent cell phone and smart phone brands include Sony, Samsung, Nokia, Motorola, LG, Apple, Motorola and Blackberry.
All of the popular technology products and the infrastructure to support our talking, browsing and shopping activities require an industry full of people to ensure everything is at our fingertips, and this is where information technology comes in. From online banking and computer networking, to internet access and security cameras, without information technology, none of these modern conveniences would exist. IT services are booming as a result, and the IT industry is touted as one of the fastest growing sectors today.
One of the main beneficiaries of advanced technology is the security sector. With online networking, security businesses are able to offer their customers real-time surveillance and communication from security cameras. Many security services offer packages that include security monitoring through security cameras that will email homeowners when they are away from home at the first sign of activity. These emails can include pictures of the home, and the activity taking place.
