It is said that we are all connected now through technology. However, there are some people who say otherwise. Technology is dragging them down and not what they expected at all.
For some, technology is a great device that enhances lives, and for others it is something that bogs them down and frustrates them.
The Downside of Technology
There are many pitfalls of technology. Anyone who has ever tried to sign in to their laptop at home to do a college assignment or pick up some extra work from home and been knocked out of the internet, will tell you that it is frustrating at best.
If you are like most individuals, your internet and your television and your phones are all connected to the same service. When one is down, all three are down. This is a major downside of technology. Sure, you get a great price; however, if you do not get service, a good price is pointless.
Cell phones are also another source of frustration when it comes to technology. There are times when you absolutely cannot get a signal no matter how hard you try. And if you do finally get a signal, there is the chance that your call will be dropped or you will only be able to hear every other word.
Computers crashing in the middle of an important project is another major downside to technology. Even if you saved the work to your desktop with the intention of saving it to a memory stick a bit later, you cannot retrieve that information if your computer has crashed. This is frustrating at best and it has happened to the best of us.
What Can You Do?
One way to avoid being without phone service is to make sure that you have the most up-to-date cell phone service you can. In this way, when your house phone does go out you will always have a reliable way to contact people.
If you are used to utilizing a laptop that uses Wi-Fi, think about getting a personal computer so that if your Wi-Fi router is on the blink, you will not be compromised in any way.
If you have had the unfortunate experience (like most of us) to have your computer crash and lose work, get in the habit of saving to a disk or memory stick every day. Although it is a pain at first, once it becomes habit, you will realize that it is the best decision you have ever made when it comes to technology.
Although technology can be a drag sometimes, if you are well prepared, you can offset some of these problems before they happen.
