Since the announcement of the iPhone 5S and its new fingerprint password technology, I have been noticing just how much technology is constantly trying to improve itself. The invention of the mobile phone, the television and the internet were all remarkable, and yes, I do believe they have changed the world for the better. Since then, it seems that there has been a constant progression in the developments of technology by companies who are, apparently, trying to make our lives easier.
The invention of the microwave was exceptional in helping those clueless in the kitchen, but now I have managed to find myself a microwave oven. This little gem has so many different settings I do not really know how to even find most of them, but it works as an oven and a microwave. So yes, essentially, I now have two ovens and a microwave (and a hob, slow cooker, griddle, grill etc.) This is quite ridiculous as really my culinary skills do not stretch much further than a jacket potato and beans, but I feel it is nice to know I have an appliance for any task that may arise.
Furthering on from the computer, we now have flat screen computers, laptops and iPads or tablets; as well as interactive televisions, game consoles and even home security systems. The power of internet that is now in the forms of our own wireless broadband connections, public wifi and 3G means that we are now able to connect with each other, and even to our appliances, from anywhere in the world. So much so that I am able to make sure that my heating is on before I have even left work in the evenings! Even our devices are able to connect with each other using the internet, with the invention of wonderful things such as iCloud, all your data from one device (say, your phone) can be stored at home, on your laptop. Gone are the days where you lose all your contacts, and have to actually speak to people!
