Sitting amongst the audience, I heard this young girl standing behind the podium to speak against the topic ‘Technology is a blessing’. I instantly reached for my mobile (lying between a thousand other things in my bag). Upon connecting my phone to the internet (I owe it to Frontier Internet Prices), I researched examples that supported the topic.
To my amazement, the mike that the girl was speaking in was classified as a technological invention as well (talk about irony). It was a parliamentary debate so I walked up to the stage. And pointed out all the ways that technology (computers, in particular) has been a blessing.
No Distance is Long Distance :
With the introduction of e-mail and video conferencing (read: Skype), long distances do not matter anymore. Connecting to a friend or a family member who resides thousands of miles away is no issue in today’s world. The bosses being able to assign you tasks even when traveling is something nobody likes, though. Jokes apart, computers have made it easier for people to give interviews or work for an employer without being physically present at the premises.
Acquire Degrees from the Comfort of Your Home :
In this era, instructors do not mind if you do not show up to their lecture. You can always access the online lectures or view slides later. Moreover, if you wish to enroll yourself in a course or diploma but are unable to travel to that country, online courses got your back. Believe you me, it is that easy these days. The concept of virtual classrooms is on the rise. You can easily acquire knowledge from well-renowned instructors from your home.
Needle in a Haystack :
Now computers come equipped with apps like Excel which save people the hassle of manual data entry. Gone are the days when people had to maintain registers to enter the data. Now, all information is fed into the computer. It is the job of the computer to search through the clutter of data and display the required figures in front of you. Not only does this save time but reduces the human error as well.
Personal Home Theatre :
Computers allow you to insert DVDs, CDs and USBs (most recent development) in them and watch endless shows and movies. You do not have to wait for your cable service provider or your favorite movie channel to air a specific movie.
School Bag- An Almost Extinct Creature :
Children these days would never experience the pain you went through while carrying heavy bags on your shoulders. Oh, it was a torture, to say the least. I am glad our shoulders did not bruise. Or did they? Today’s kids very conveniently submit home works online through computers and perform all in-class activities on computers. Notebooks and books are clichéd concepts now.
Shop Till You Drop :
Online shopping has become so common in this age that every other business you come across is an e-commerce business. People were reluctant to share their personal information online at first that did pose a threat to these businesses. However, now every company assures its customers about the protection of their data. Because it is of benefit to the individuals as well, they do not hesitate to place orders online. The idea of physical shops is diminishing with time.
Birth of New Jobs :
As I discussed the possibility of working from home, the invention of computers has also given rise to new categories of jobs. Digital marketers, content writers, and web developers are people that the advancing world needs. Without them, the businesses won’t be able to function.
Space Exploration :
Okay, so I find anything and everything related to space very cool (that is extra information).
Anyhow, computers have enabled people to design the many types of equipment used for exploration in today’s age. Talking of space, you should know that the tiniest of miscalculation in design can cause huge problems. Obviously, a human cannot be as accurate when it comes to measurements as a computer can be.
Planning Trips :
From booking tickets to making room reservations, computers have made it possible to do it while relaxing at home. You can connect to the travel agent, the hotel crew and even the guide through computer and internet. So, computers allow you to have your bookings and reservations done way before time.
Work in the Setting of a Cafe :
Personal computers aka laptops have enabled individuals to work while enjoying the sights and sounds of a coffee shop.
I am of the opinion that working from home gets boring at times and a change of setting always refreshes your mind. In fact, a mini café or a nearby coffee shop is my favorite places to work from. Not only do I meet new people, I feel that my brain gets more creative when I work in these places. However, some cafés do not offer the facility of Wi-Fi but my Xfinity Triple play deals got me covered.
