Just watched a short clip on the internet, there is a new invention. You no longer have to queue on the line to pay for what you purchase at the supermarket. You still don’t get it? Okay, you can just walk into the supermarket with your card in your hand, there will be a censor by the entrance, and all you need do is touch your card with it, voila! You are free to go on a shopping spree. The items you pick are noted on your card and the price is withdrawn from your account automatically! Did you just say Wow!? Yes it is really amazing. Imagine how so easy it these days to reconnect with folks from way back? How easy it is for you make a video call to your friend or family at the other end of the world when they travel?

Technology is a word that scares a lot of people. It is even scarier for entrepreneurs who have little or no technology background and know-how.
