6. Instagram (free)

7. TVCatchup (free)

When your flight is delayed and you know you missed that episode of the really important TV series you watch while you were trying to pack, settle down to watch it with TVCatchup, a free service with most Freeview channels available on demand. I’ll leave you to watch that episode now.

But fear not, person who has to pick you up, for you can find where that plane is with no hassle at all. Just whip out your phone, launch Flightradar24 Pro and easily find the plane, why its delayed and when it will arrive. Worry not, there is a free version out there but it can’t do much.

9. Angry Birds (free)

After realising that the plane is going to be another hour before it lands, the person picking you up has to bide his time and what way better is there than to play Angry Birds. Catapult those birds at those pigs and gain revenge at the for stealing your precious eggs.

3D Printing

Yet another technological wonder is 3D Printing. If you have been living under a rock, and missed the hype, 3D printing is available to anyone wanting to print anything. However like most other good things, it comes at a price and unfortunately, quite a hefty one too.

But if you do happen to have a few thousand pounds floating around, a 3D printer is definitely worth buying. The possibilities are endless! You could make clothes, phone cases, toys, furniture and even musical instruments!

       Why buy when you can print?

3D printing is not just for personal use, several brands are starting to move to printing for manufacturing instead of manual labour. However companies that have decided to do this, have cancelled the jobs of their workers so in a way, 3D printing isn’t all that great.

Hospitals have started using 3D printers to replace broken bones. Quite recently, a woman was fitted with a 3D printed jaw because her natural one had been destroyed by disease.

3D printers are amazing no doubt about it but personally, I would wait until the tech advances a bit and the price tag on these machines drop a few thousand.

Raspberry Pi

If asked “Would you like a Raspberry Pi or a raspberry pie?” most people would raise their eyebrows and begin to question whether or not this person was being serious or not. To all those who would raise their eyebrows, say “both”.

A raspberry pie, although delicious, is dwarfed in uses by the Raspberry Pi, a miniature computer being sold at £16 per unit. Now, I know what you’re thinking,”That sounds like a great deal! I’ll buy one and save myself hundreds!” But be warned, the tiny computer comes without a windows or mac operating system, without much space, and without wifi. However the Pi is perfect if you want to learn more about computers. The pros outweigh the cons of buying one.

PROS:

  1. Cheap
  2. Easy to learn programming with
  3. Very customisable
  4. Small and compact

CONS: 

  1. Not portable
  2. High demand
  3. Cannot replace your average computer

     WARNING! NOT FOR EATING!

The Pi was created for the use of easy computer education, but can be used for nearly anything else. Because of it’s HDMI capability and its in-built HDMI port, it could be turned into a interactive gallery, or a cinema.

Although it sounds like something out of the future, the Pi is definitely something to buy.   So what are you waiting for? High demand for the Pi means it is nearly always out of stock, so the earlier you order, the earlier you receive. You will certainly not regret buying this £16 pound technological wonder.

Evolution of technology

Technology has come a long way since the dawn of time but the question is how long and where is it headed? To answer this question we must define technology.

“The application of scientific knowledge for practical purposes” Oxford English Dictionary

This stretches back to the time of cave men where using spears was a form of technology but we are here to talk about more recent terms.

Since the invention of the microchip, personal computers are a common sight in most homes everywhere around the world. Some of the first personal computers were the IBM 5100, the Apple ][ and the IBM PC.

But what is the future of computational technology? We have already advanced so far forward with touchscreens, handhelds and now we even have Google Glass. For those who haven’t already heard of it check it out below!

http://www.google.com/glass/start/

David Patterson, a professor at the University of California, predicts that by 2020, a whole computer would be able to fit onto a single microchip. He also predicts that, if technology continues to advance at the same rate it has done for the past 10 years then a cure for cancer might be a possibility.

But technology isn’t just about computers! Take a look at mobile phones. Only 20 years ago were we walking around with ‘brick’ phones. And now in 2013, phones have become an object which we could only dream of back in the 90’s.

Life before the digital age

Have you ever wondered what life was like before the digital age? Before computers, tablets, e-readers and other electronic gadgets were invented?

“I don’t spend that much time using electronics,” I hear you say, but on the contrary 80% of adults in the US spend 18 hours of their week on the internet and will probably spend an extra 3 hours on electronics which aren’t connected to the internet.

Life without electronics would mean a whole different life, not just leaving the internet for a few days. Every job nowadays uses electronics. Office workers survive off the use of computers, shop owners need tills and scanners and healthcare centres all require the use of high-tech machinery.

In 2013 if the world was wiped of its technology, we’d be back to square one and we may as well be roaming with dinosaurs again!

Back to the future?

Perhaps you should try going for just one day without electronics and see how long you last?
