“Technology – in various ways”
“Technology is a gift of God” (Freeman Dyson), it talks about that technology is one of the God’s gifts for us. It’s said that after the gift of life it is perhaps the greatest of God’s gift. It’s the mother of civilization, arts and sciences. We can create a civilization of the mind in cyber space. Similarly it is God’s gift from us to improve more our learning’s and to do more experiment about technology. Also technology is supposed to make our life easier, allowing us to do thing more quickly and efficiently, different types of technology we encounter every day. These technologies are products of the innovation and enhancement made by men. In this case technology affected different aspects of life positively, such as in the field of education, business/career, and entertainment.
Buying and selling are just about anything over the Internet. According to the article that I read the internet changed the buying and selling through the use of technology (White, 2011). He says that as the world population gets larger and technology keeps advancing, more people are able to do more things that they couldn't do before, one of the example is the buying and selling of their products through the use of computers and internet. For the buyers we can immediate access to inventory that meets our campaign goals and for the sellers we can manage yield more effectively, capture additional revenue and increase overall yield on their inventory and maintain control of inventory. We can buy and sell our products by just clicking the website that we are looking for and post the picture that we want to sell online and to look some things that we need and buy them online. Therefore we can create a small business transaction by using the internet. Anyone seems, can sell anything, (Donahue, 2000) as long as they can get their hands on enough supply to make the business work. Also technology can use to advertise some business or products online. It had a great advantage when comes out to the buying, selling, and advertising of products through the use of technology. Individuals are able to find some jobs online. Individuals promote themselves, buy doing it online! It’s quick, easy and simple! Social engines are also fantastic for getting your voice heard (Gupta, 2013). If you’ve just started a business or promoting a particular product, social media is probably the best resource to start with. Social media enables you to engage an audience. Now, we can get interview by the use of social media, we can easily pass our resume by the use of computers and internet. Technology, however, is increasing and affecting everyone, everything seems to be processed through a computer these days. If technology has a great advantage on the field of business, then how technology can help on the field of education?
EBook technologies as well as by surges in usage of eBooks generally. Higher Education and Further Education (Clay, 2012) institutions the scope for adoption of eBooks has steadily increased. As many institutions have started the process of adopting and using eBooks, however,they need to be aware of issues as they embrace and embed eBooks within classrooms, research, libraries, and etc. It is examines how eBooks are being adopted within academic libraries, how eBooks are being used for learning and teaching, and their impact on research and publication. In this process, it addresses key technical and cultural issues(Clay, 2012) that institutions face when adopting eBooks. The advantage of Ebooks in our Education is it helps us to find faster what we are looking for. Technologies also help us to find some topic that informants looking for it also help us to do it easier and faster. It can give us information that are suits for the topic that we want to search, eBook technologies can help us to increase our Higher and Further Education.
Video technology took center stage; technology can enhance the videos, games and music. Video technology pioneers are taking matters into their own hands to ensure the popularity of the emerging medium doesn’t fizzle out because of a lack of expertise (Shauk, 2010). Internet communities have also formed behind videos, games, and music, such as in which hundreds of composers and musicians online demonstrate their own arrangements of music based on original video, game, music, often enhancing the previously technology-limited few-instrument melodies to full potential. Another development in the last decade has also brought on new interface hardware for video game players such as placemats, maracas, guitars, and drum kits, through which many users are introduced to music in an interactive manner rather than simply being the audience. Games such as Dance Dance Revolution (DDR), Frequency, SingStar, Guitar Hero and RockBand(Mun, 2008-2013) and various others have inspired a generation of video game players to turn back to 80’s music, hip-hop, even folk songs, and other genres, that otherwise may have become slowly forgotten. According to Raphael Mun (2008) these games have brought many older musicians back to the fore-front, and revitalized the music industry to a younger generation, many of whom had never heard of these musicians and bands. We can more improve, enhancing and developing our mobile applications and videos and music by the use of technology.
Technology can make our life easier. It can help us to do our work more efficient and faster. For business and career we can use the internet to advertise our products, to buy and sell our goods and to look some job opportunities online. Technology, for the field of education, eBooks our one of the useful tool to help our teachers and students to do some paper works and research purposes, if we’re not have a book we can also use eBooks to find some topics or books that we are looking for, and use it for school purposes. Informants can also use internet when they’re looking some topics and meaning of a words that they are trying to find on some dictionaries and books. On the field of entertainment, the modern technology can help the editors to edit the videos and to enhance some games and music also they can develop and improve more application by the use of the modern technology right now. Our world right now are surrounded by technology whatever we do, wherever we look at, technology are just right there, manipulate us and taking a good chance to improve more and develop some things that we can be use for our future and for the next generation. Therefore, I conclude that there is lot of advantages that technology given us for the business and career, education and information, and also in entertainment.
