We live in a world that just keeps getting faster and sometimes it feels hard to keep up, but there are definitely bright sides. Many illnesses that used to be common are all but extinct, we can easily chat with people on the other side of the planet, and Ben & Jerry’s continues to produce new flavours each year. There are even companies who are focused on government technology solutions that increase the accountability of the government. Maybe the ice cream isn’t exactly an example of great technology, but there are some that you can use to better your life listed below.
1.) Take Advantage of Energy Management Tools
The energy field is becoming more high tech than ever to help you be more efficient and save money. Some companies are even starting to include energy budgeting software right in their utility packages. You should know that if you ever see a wild concert in the city of Boston, the show was powered by energy aggregating that is managed with this technology. That’s rock’n’roll.
2.) Love Headphones, but Hate Inconvenience?
We’ve come a long way from giant extra-aural headphones that needed a thick cord to connect to a stereo, but even bluetooth headsets have their setbacks. Earbuds are uncomfortable and can cause damage to your ear drums, but larger over-the-ear sets can be clunky. Sleep Phones are the perfect solution, as they combine the ease of bluetooth connection with the comfort of a headband, so you don’t have to deal with your headphones sliding around or invading your ear canal.
3.) There are Apps for Everything
Studying for a test? App. Planning a party and need a band? App. Trying to learn an instrument so that maybe someday somebody books you for their party? Of courses there’s an app! If only they didn’t take up so much memory, life would be completely mobilized.
These are just a few of the many technologies that are improving your life everyday, even if in small ways. It’s easy to get caught up in all of the negativity around you, but when you take a step back, you can easily see that things are getting better and better all the time.
