Shuttling from meeting to meeting can be an arduous task. I used to carry a city map to help get around. Technology had answered my prayers. Finally, the GPS has been introduced in the market. After I read a gps review, I immediately chose the one suited for my line of work. I can now easily plan my route and even avoid traffic.

The net is flooded with videos that work only with Flash. Mobile computing has never been so good. You can do anything with your device no matter where you are.

We’ve just finished checking our stocks in our warehouse. We do this during the first month of the year. Every stockman has a barcode scanner when we do our inventory. Every data is sent directly to our central computer. We print a list of what is in stock and what needs to be ordered. The system makes our operations more efficient.

I have an old printer which I still use. It’s reliable but its ink cartridges are hard to come by. I’ve heard of recycled toner cartridges. Recycled? That’s a good alternative than buying new ones! I can save from the cost and I can help the environment as well. I’ve already made my first order. My favorite printer will be saved from the scrapyard. I’m going green.

A friend of mine took me along to an electronics convention. Robotics have always interested me. I have visited different manufacturing plants and I’m very much impressed by the accuracy of their works. Imagine laying down a perfect weld on car chassis. When it comes to smaller jobs that require more accuracy and precision, there machines for this. Prototype SMT Stencils were on display. They also very impressive. Laser stencils are at the heart of both big and small welding and soldering jobs. Lasers guide these machines to perfectly do their jobs. The convention opened my eyes to the beauty and benefits of modern laser technology.

We were invited to a magnate’s home for lunch. It’s in the outskirts of the city. A camera outside simply took my picture and the gates opened to let us in. The lights turned on automatically as we entered the living room. Our host was there to greet us. During lunch, the air condition adjusted itself as the temperature rose in the dining room. I told our host that this is our first experience with home automation.  He smiled and said that this is the home of the future. Pretty soon, all homes will be like his.

I brought my car to the service shop for regular maintenance. Some parts had to be replaced. The mechanic simply pointed a barcode scanner to my service record and easily got the list of the parts he needs. I was impressed. The supervisor explained that it was easier for them to monitor the services they have done on every customer’s car. All the records are instantly downloaded to their database for future reference. Technology sure has come a long way. It has made work a lot easier for everyone.

Technology has reached the educational system. Even exams are now sent by email to students. Some computer shops have now tied up with schools to supply them with laptops for students. With this, students are given special discounts and great deals on these laptops. My nephew has bought a laptop through this program. They have now made laptops affordable for all.

Just when technology thought it can protect us, someone would develop a way to break the system down. They thought that the rfid system would be able to secure our personal information. Well, electronic thieves have found a way to siphon off these data. It seems that there is no system strong enough not to be broken by determined criminals. I don’t know if they’ll ever develop a system that is truly unbreakable.
