About this day in technology

Technology seems to have reached the innermost nooks and crannies of the modern world. From the moment our alarm clock wakes us up in the morning, until the HDTV lulls us to sleep at night, there are a multitude of domestic appliances we unwittingly use each and every day. Even the food we eat is processed, tinned, frozen, dried, vacuum sealed, being flown or shipped in from across the world. 

Our homes and offices are built using ever-evolving materials and processes with technologies of their own.
We keep connected across the continents through the internet, email, fax, mobile phones, blackberry, SMS, MMS. Friends and loved ones are found through chat forums, and online dating. We are instantly informed about news and events through satellite relay.   

We use GPS in our hi-tech cars (built by cleverly engineered robots on vast assembly lines), while we listen to some tracks on our I-Pod that we downloaded from You-Tube. We share our complex roads and bridges with trains, trams, monorails, buses, trucks, motorcycles and mopeds.

We take the elevator x-storeys up into our modern landscape of scaling skyscapers, which one day we might end up bombing with a SCUD Missile. We connect wirelessly to free wireless hotspots, we network our PDA, laptop and home computer, sharing files and photos taken on digital cameras. Sports are now played on Playstation, Wii, X-Box, Nintendo, and Gameboy. 

It seems we’ve adapted the slogan, “Faster! Smaller! Bigger! Cheaper! Safer! More Efficient! - NOW!” The result is, we have been forever changed by technology, and we can be certain that we will always continue to be.
