How do computers, mobiles, and tablets affect our lives? [Tip]

In today’s technology driven world, the effects of computers, mobiles, and tablets and other digital devices, that are so easily and prolifically available has changed the way we live, as compared to just a generation ago.

In fact, there is a lot of truth in the statement that technology has increased exponentially, rather than multiplicatively, over the last generation; as prophesied in the good old book “even to the time of the end: many shall run to-and-fro; and knowledge shall be increased.” This wave of knowledge has led man to create devices to help him live more comfortably and work efficiently. This article is a frank discussion on the effects of computers, mobiles, and tablets and other devices on our lives.

Devices and Gadgets

Personal computers, Macs, Androids, tablets, iPhones, iPads, iPods, smart watches, and so forth. There are these devices, and more, and they are being created in decreasing sizes, and increasing capabilities at such a rate that some device that is “cool” today may not be as “cool” in less than 3 months.
