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 The items you pick are noted on your card and the price is withdrawn from your account automatically!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? There are just 2 words in involved, technology and innovation. It is amazing how easy networking is these which often makes one wonder how people who lived in the 70’s and 80’s coped, not to mention those who lived centuries before us.
Well I could go on and on about how technology has taken over the world, also bear it in mind this ‘surge’ also has its side effects which I won’t dwell on. The question is…Why haven’t you embraced technology in this age?! It is almost cataclysmic for any brand, business or organization to not have a presence on the internet, which arguably is the finest byproduct of technology. Having a presence on the internet could then be broken into social media and the likes. So at what time exactly did Technology take over the world? Here is a pictorial evidence of how technology has indeed taken over the world.
That’s what 10 years of massive boom in technology does.
So why should you invest in technology? Here are 3 major factors which you should consider seriously;
–Technology: $0.20/hour (high-end workstation)
–Office Space: $2/hour
–Knowledge Worker: $60/hour
Puts things in perspective, doesn’t it pay to invest in technology?

The below listed brands and products are less than 10years old, yet it feels like they have been around forever and you sometimes wonders how people who lived before these years survived, especially if you belong the “new school”.
