If it were not for Amazon.com, I think my life would be a complete loss.
Well, okay, not a complete loss, but since we do live miles and miles from town, and UPS, as well as FedEx deliver to our door, it makes things a LOT easier. Forget to buy something in town that can be shipped? No problemo! Amazon.com has almost everything!
And none of this would be made possible without technology!
On some levels, technology is awesome: it makes life more convenient. Records can be kept online or on the computer; balancing the checkbook is a snap. I have email on my phone so I can reply to people on the go!
On other levels, I think we’re way too connected in this world! It scares me sometimes, how much information is out there about us, how easy it is to share about our lives and even how easy it is for someone to steal your identity.
On an agriculture related note, technology has made farmer’s lives better, and is allowing them to be more efficient. How, you’re asking yourself? Well, GPS of course! Most new tractors come equipped with a GPS system, that has the computer doing the driving, and the farmer, well he can just sit back and “relax” until it’s time to turn that bad-boy around. They’ve found by using GPS systems when they plant that they increase the amount of land that can be cultivated, because the computer can stay on track better than any person!
The tall and short of it is, technology is my friend, and I figure it’s kind of here to stay!
