Technology: It’s Making Me Stupid - As growing up in the “techie” generation, technology has had a major impact in my life. I haven’t had to take computer learning classes to inform me on how to use a computer, I haven’t had to have an explanation on how to txt, and I didn’t need help navigating my way around MySpace. I just knew. It’s not as though I’m a super-genius, (that’s, by far, not the case.) it’s just the era in which I was born and raised. And, at often times, I wish I was born in a different time period, away from all this technology that makes me feel like, second by second, I’m losing fewer and fewer much needed brain cells....   [tags: Technology]

The Benefits of Technology - Who could live without a cell phone these days. Until two years ago, I never used cellphones. “We could figure it out before we ever used cellphones. Why do I need a cellphone now?” I would stubbornly rant. At the same time, I was often forced to admit in embarrassment “No, I just have a LAN line.” I would endure estranged glares when asking “So, should I just knock on the door when I get there?” It just wasn’t practical anymore.

Television Programming Technology - Television primetime genre shows – sitcoms, dramas, and reality programming – have traditionally given their viewers a sense of community by creating a shared viewing experience. This community depended on every fan watching at a scheduled time, missing their show at the risk of a plot spoiler or exclusion from the next day’s conversation. Now, the trend of television shows being posted to dedicated websites is making them available to watch online at any time. Presenting a challenge to the traditional real-time viewing format, this trend has led some early adopters of the online format to predict the end of television (Lotz, 2009) existing independently of a computer screen....   [tags: Technology ]
