    I remember: Computers and other technology

    I remember: Computers and other technology

    “There is no such thing as a new idea. It is impossible. We simply take a lot of old ideas and put them into a sort of mental kaleidoscope. We give them a turn and they make new and curious combinations. We keep on turning and making new combinations indefinitely; but they are the same old pieces of colored glass that have been in use through all the ages.” — Mark Twain

    In our story about Web 1.0, we explored the read-only era before 2005. The days when blogging and social media began, and the number of internet users went from under 50 million to over 1 billion. Now, we're going to explore the most recent part of our internet history, which some refer to as the read-write age of the web.

    How did technology impact our society?

    How did technology impact our society?

    In our generation, technology has rapidly changed, giving us the ability to communicate, multitask, and so much more. It expanded its accessibility of computers, phones, and software from offices, to our homes and now in our own hands. However, technology has been used in many ways that both good and bad. Laurie Penny, a journalist, writes about the idea of having the internet and what it was used for throughout history. In her journal article “Cybersexism,” released in 2014, she talks about her experience of becoming a writer without the internet and how people threaten each other online. She believes that the internet is not “free” and that the internet is not for everybody because women are being discriminated against online. Emily Witt is a journalist who wrote on her experience based on dating and relationships. In her magazine article “Love Me Tinder,” released in 2015 from her book Future Sex, she talks about how Tinder became a popular sensation. She takes on a neutral perspective of dating apps and how they impact relationships, dates, and hook-ups by comparing other people’s experiences, in how they use various dating apps, and other users. She wants us to view the use of social media apps like Tinder, Grindr, and many others as a normal activity. Zoe Bernard, a tech reporter, discusses the start of developed technology and its influence on our culture. In her business article, “Here's how technology is shaping the future of education,” released in 2017, she talks about how technology influences and shapes our educational world. She believes that technology plays a big role in education because it allows us to accommodate learning styles when people adapt to technology and it also enhances the teacher’s roles in the classroom environment. Amir Talaei-Khoeia and Jay Daniel are two university students who are studying how technology can impact the effects of cognitive abilities. In their journal article, “How younger elderly realize usefulness of cognitive training video games to maintain their independent living,” released in October 2018, they hypothesized that through video game technology the elderly can remain independent by improving their cognitive abilities. In this paper, I will be discussing, analyzing and connecting arguments about technology and its impact on people from various and perspectives. I will also be discussing my thoughts and perspectives on technology and its current state in 2019.

    How Our World Has Changed!

    How Our World Has Changed!

    I remember my childhood. I spent most of it outside. We rode our bikes, played in the dirt. We had an old play house and if you got in before the bees came, it was fun to play in, however, not so much afterwards. We played kickball, wiffle ball, tennis, card games, dress-up, telephone, and we had a rock that we thought of as a stage and held shows. I went to camp, where we sang songs, created bad art, and learned how to cook. It was a magical time for us. The sky was the limit, and our imaginations could take us anywhere. We played outside when weather permitted and inside when it did not. We went sledding, skiing, skating, and snowshoeing in the winter. We stayed outside until it got dark, and in the winter that was around 4:00. In the summer we could spend all evening outside until 9:00 or so.

    How Roomba Robot Vacuum Cleaners Evolved: From 980 to s9

    How Roomba Robot Vacuum Cleaners Evolved: From 980 to s9

    Basically, new vacuum cleaners are produced in series, and several different models from the same series are often very similar. The very first series, released in the middle and second half of the 2000s, were the 500, 600 and 700 series. They became pioneers in this field and were the first that applied the HEPA filtration technology, the virtual wall, Max Mode. Some of these robots (mostly the 500 series) are currently out of production, but you shouldn’t get upset, because more technologically advanced models replaced them.
