10 Essential Tech Products That Are Always a Good Investment
Advertising

Gadgets have become an essential part of our busy lives. And just like everything else, those get outdated and need to be upgraded. But whether those upgrades are necessary is a little subjective. Sometimes they’re worth it. But mostly, you don’t actually need it and it’s a waste of money. So, instead of spending big bucks on gadgets you might not use or which can easily be replaced in the future, save your money for these truly essential tech products. They’ll last a long time and are worth every penny.

1. A good smartphone

Yes, every few months a new iteration of the previous model comes on the market, but don’t be tempted to buy every upgrade. Make a list of all the features you require, stick to your budget, and you will probably find the perfect smartphone for you.

    2. A laptop

          Yes, we have super-thin membrane keyboards, touch keyboard, and so on.

                      Technology has taken a vantage leap in providing solutions for man. Before now, technology used to appear complex and would require a great deal of expertise to handle solutions available. Today, we have technology applicable in the simplest human activities as smart products with intelligent algorithms powering them as they make error-free judgments and provide intelligent and analytic solutions.

                      Does technology have all the answers?

                      This article from Credit Suisse, tells us that technology does not have all the answers because it has been found to exhibit “similar biases,” as humans. No one can discredit the impact of technology, but it is not totally free of human input and this is the reason we experience these biases in many areas we have technology holding foot.

                      Creating technological solutions transparently

                      This article suggests that the process of creating technological solutions be made transparent and subject to contribution from many people who would end up as users of the product – male, female, young, old, learned, unlearned and all other preferences as we have them. It also underscores the importance of having women on product development teams. This approach is not sure to eliminate all forms of bias, but it is a good way to start in order to appraise the full benefits of technology.

                      Technology as the connecting tool

                      Technology so far has been a major connecting tool amongst us humans. It is used and appreciated by all regardless of race, language and sex. In order to keep it less subjective to these arguments about human biases. I believe we should gather opinions on products and solutions before making them available to the public. This could be done by gathering input from intended target users and receiving feedback across the stages of production.

                      “Recognizing the problem is a start…success will depend on inclusive technologies that meet this vast untapped market.” This cannot be more apt especially at a time when we look up to technology for solutions. We should not muzzle our progress with technology by battling algorithm bias. The first way to avoid this battle is by reading this article here.
