- Turned you into a technology addict
We are going to speak to you about the pros and cons of technology. Does technology really make your life better? In some instances we would say, yes. We see great advances in medical technology where people will be able to have their illness diagnosed via the Internet in real time by a real doctor. This means that people wouldn’t have to take off work to go to the doctor and lose all that pay and drive across town, but could see the doctor face-to-face over the computer. This would cut a lot of cost now incurred by physically having to be there.
There’s another area where technology has created huge opportunities and is cranking out technology-based diplomas. This would be for anyone who wants to learn about drone technology. Whether it’s building them, or servicing them, or flying them, or even selling them – drone and robotic technology will provide great opportunities for individuals in the future.
When buying a piece of technology you should consider your purchase carefully. Will this technology purchase actually improve my life or is it just a status symbol? What’s worse is a status symbol that you hold up next to your head that has been proven to increase brain cancers. Now, is that advancement in technology worth it?
What about anything that is electronics based that really doesn’t contribute to your quality of life, but is just an impulse buy. For example, how many flat screen TV’s do you need in your home and why do you have to keep buying the latest and greatest TV screen or smart phone?
What technology has done in these cases is turned you into a technology addict. You just bought the latest smart phone when you read a month later that the next generation is coming out in a few months. Does this really make sense to anyone except the manufacturer reaping all the profits?
QUESTION: What should readers take away from this message today?
ANSWER: That technology can be an impulse buy or a necessity, but may or may not improve the quality of your life.
QUESTION: Why is this information timely?
ANSWER: This information is timely because Apple recently announced its latest iPhone, but a couple weeks ago they announced when the next version would be available in August.
QUESTION: How can readers best apply this information to their lives right now?
ANSWER: Don’t become a technology addict. Ask yourself what you want to do with the technology, then buy the least expensive one that meets your needs.
COMMENTARY: Technology is something you buy because you need it and use it. No matter what it is it will lose value the moment you buy it, so it has to off-set that loss by the improved productivity it provides. Whatever you do don’t let your ego play into this. It might impress your friends right now, but in 6 months from now they will be looking in a new direction where the latest, greatest advancements makes yours look like a relic.
