Top 4 Technology Trends Americans Prefer

Top 4 Technology Trends Americans Prefer

Technology impacts people every day. Throughout history, technology has continually changed the way people live their lives, are entertained, are able to work and are able to do many other things. The list of technological changes is long and varied. The one thing that is consistent when it comes to technology is that it will continue to change and that there will always be trends that are popular.

In the United States, technology is readily available to everyone. Because of that, it is worth paying attention to the top technology trends that are going on. That information can serve businesses and individuals. It can also help people understand what is going on around them and how technology is involved with much of what is changing culturally.

It is a good idea for people to know what the trends are. For anyone that is looking to find out about this, here are four technology trends that Americans seem to prefer.

Going Mobile

The first computer was the size of a small office building. Today’s computer devices can be as small as a watch. Combined with the technology for batteries that allows these devices to work longer without being plugged in, people are able to take their computers and get mobile. They can enjoy their favorite shows, videos, music and much more anywhere they want. The younger generation no longer has to wait until Saturday night to watch the shows they like on the one television in the home. Instead, they can watch it alone or with others on whatever device they have available at the moment.

Computers

Computers may not be considered a new technology trend, but the way that Americans are using them is a technology trend worth watching. The idea of live TV streaming and the ability to use a variety of computer devices has changed the way that people get their entertainment. It has given the control of what people want to watch, when they want to watch it, where they want to watch it and what they watch it on to the people. Computers and the use of videos have allowed people to get information and to enjoy video entertainment more than ever before. It has also given people access to content they would never have gotten in the past

Connecting

The statistics show that more people are acquiring smartphones every day. This technology has changed the way people view the world in many ways. The biggest advantage of smartphones is their ability to connect people easily and quickly. A person can use their smartphone to record images, to send messages to check out social media and much more. They can share all of the things on their smartphones with people around the world. This means that information can be spread around the world in a very short time. It has changed the way that people do things and the way that businesses work. The spread of information through the internet means that good and bad information will reach people rapidly and that there is not as much time to react to this information as there was in the past.

Tablet use is growing

While smartphones are very popular, the use of tablet computers is growing rapidly. Tablets can give people the same computing power that they are used to with their laptop or desktop computer. It can give the user a device that is easier to take with them and that lasts longer between charges. It also allows people to use apps to find what they want, quickly and on the go The market for different apps and how they are used is growing. Companies are making a lot of money from gaming apps, live TV streaming apps, financial apps and much more. It is possible for the users of tablets to get what they want with the touch of the app on their screen.

From this list of trending technology in America, one thing should become clear. The technology that drives the train is computers and the internet. This technology will continue to change as more people learn about the power of cloud computing and as computer devices become even more powerful. More people are going to turn to online TV and streaming videos for information and entertainment and the makers of these devices will continue to find ways to make that happen. It could be through the current devices or through the apps that provide the streaming videos.

It should not surprise anyone to know that technology is changing and that computers are behind many of the changes. If you have any thoughts or ideas, please take the time to share them with us.

How to Quit Your Boring Life and Start Living an Interesting One

How to Quit Your Boring Life and Start Living an Interesting One

Think you have a boring life?

The definition of boring is dull or not interesting. Maybe you’ve been doing the same thing and living the same life for too long, or maybe your daily routine is limiting your growth and happiness. Whatever your reason is, the following list of 20 things can definitely make any day more interesting. Some of them are silly, while some are more meaningful, so hopefully just reading the list makes your life less boring and sparks your creativity.

Let’s dive in the list to quit your boring life and start living an interesting (and meaning) one!

1. Channel Your 7-Year-Old Self

What would he or she want to do right now? Color? Paint? Run around outside? Play dress up? Eat with your hands? Play that instrument hiding in the back of your closet that you haven’t touched in years?

Just because you’re a grown up doesn’t mean any of this stuff will be less enjoyable than you remember it. Give yourself permission to play.

2. Go Play with Kids

Speaking of little kids, if you have your own or access to any (in a non-creepy way, like they’re your niece or your best friend’s kid, you get the idea) go play with them!

They didn’t create an entire show called Kids Say The Darndest Things because kids aren’t hilarious. They also keep things so simple, and we can really stand to be reminded of this and stop allowing ourselves to get bogged down in boring details.

3. Order a Hot Dog

While you’re eating it, Google: “What’s in a hot dog?” You decide whether or not you want to finish it.

4. For the Ladies: Wear Your Sexiest Lingerie Under Your Work Clothes

Your “little secret” will leave you feeling anything but boring all day!

5. Play Cell Phone Roulette

You’ll need at least one buddy for this. Scroll through the contacts in your phone, stop on a random one and call the person.

You could spark an incredible catch up session or be incredibly awkward. Neither are boring.

6. Fill out a Pack of Thank-You Cards

Give them to random people who probably don’t get thanked too often for doing what they do ever day.

Ideas: police officers, librarians, servers, baristas, cab drivers, sanitation workers, teachers, people behind any check out counter, receptionists, your friends, the guy at the falafel stand, etc.

7. Sign up for a Class in Something You’ve “Always Wanted to Do”, or Something That Makes You Really Uncomfortable

Ideas: pole dancing, salsa lessons, improv, pottery, cooking, knitting (yup, there are classes for this, too!), karate, boxing, something techy like the workshops they run in Apple stores, get Rosetta Stone and learn that language you’ve always wanted to speak, etc.

What’s good about joining an interest class is that you will also meet new people!

8. Interview Your Grandparents About Their Lives

You can bet they’ve had some crazy experiences you probably never knew about.

9. Get up on Stage at an Open Mic Night

Whether you’re funny or not, get up on stage and just talk funny. And if you’re not, memorize a few of your favorite jokes and tell those!

10. Do Something for Someone Else That You Wish Someone Would Do for You

We all have a few ideas on this list. I promise you will feel amazing after and anything but bored.

11. Start a DIY Project in Your Home

It doesn’t have to be super complicated. If you need ideas, there’re plenty on Pinterest. Or you can also check out these 30 Awesome DIY Projects that You’ve Never Heard of.

12. Plan a Weekend Trip or an All-Out Vacation

This will give you something to look forward to.

Even if you don’t have the time or money to go on a vacation, plan for a staycation, which is same fun and relaxing!

13. People Watch

Find a bench in a crowded area (centers of transportation like airports, bus stops and train stations are great for this!) and just observe.

People are infinitely interesting.

14. Eat Something You’ve Never Eaten Before

Bonus points if it’s a random fruit or veggie.

15. Dance

You can get your friends together for a night on the town or just pull up a video on YouTube and bust a move from your own living room.

If you’re feeling extra brave, you can even dance in public and get other people involved.

16. Go to YOUTUBE and Search “Funny Pets” or “Funny Babies”

This is also a great quickie ab workout as you will be laughing hysterically.

17. Pick up a Book and Start Reading

Check out the NY Times Best Sellers lists and grab a new book you can get lost in.

18. Step Away from the Computer and Go Get Some Time with People You Care About in Real Life

Facebook stalking doesn’t count as real social interaction. You can even share this post with your friends and vote on which one you’d like to do together!

19. Check out a Museum You’ve Never Been to Before

OK, depending on your interests, this one might actually be boring. If you love learning, art or different cultures though, this one is for you!

20. Write a List of Things You Desire and Truly Want

This is a great way to help you figure out the real reason why you’re feeling bored about your life. Maybe you haven’t really done things that you truly enjoy? Maybe what you’ve wanted to do all the time has been left behind?

Think about the list of things you really want to do, and ask yourself why you aren’t doing these things (yet). Then start taking your first step to make what you want happen.

Now go make your life interesting and live your dream life!
