Technology has always played an important role in our daily lives, but there are some technologies that have gone beyond being simple tools to facilitate tasks to becoming integral parts of our culture. Some examples include computers (or the internet) and smartphones.

Computers were not very popular back when most people started having them. Most computer owners at this time used their device for writing documents or doing basic calculations. It was mostly seen as a tool to help professionals with their work.

Now though, technology is everywhere you look! You can find it in everything from televisions, to phones, to tablets, to laptops, to desktop computers, to games, to robots, and more.

It is so prevalent in our society that many now refer to it as a part of everyday life. This is true both for individuals who use technology extensively for professional purposes and individuals who rely on it for fun or to stay connected with others.

We live in a digital age where almost everyone has access to technology and uses it frequently. In fact, over 90% of adults ages 16-64 own a smartphone which means we all have a powerful device capable of performing advanced functions like streaming videos, taking pictures, making calls, and surfing the web.

This article will talk about one such technological innovation that has become ubiquitous – the mobile phone!


The first successful handheld electronic device was patented by Martin Cooper in 1977 under his name “Telephone”.

Online shopping

In recent years, online shopping has become the new normal. Gone are the days when people would exclusively head out to stores or restaurants to shop. With every major store having an online presence, it is easy to find what you want and how to pay for it.

This shift towards ease of access is one of the biggest factors in why online sales have increased so rapidly. It is much more convenient than going to a mall or venue that offers free parking. You also do not need to make plans ahead of time to go into town, nor does it require transportation.

It is also very cost-effective as there are no travel expenses or wasted gas money. The online sellers work hard to ensure their sites are easily accessible and user friendly, which encourages repeat business. By offering discounts and coupons, they entice future customers to add them to your cart!

While some argue that supporting businesses through purchases helps keep them afloat, there is another side to this argument. Companies rely heavily on revenue from commerce, thus limiting spending can be disastrous at times. Therefore, staying neutral about where to buy products can help mitigate this pressure.
