Geek Out: How Has Tech Affected Your Life?

For better or worse, technology definitely has an impact on our lives. Take this spot-on quote from one tech-addicted comic book designer, for example:

How tech has affected me: I was very puzzled when I looked at the top of the book I was reading and couldn't find the current time.

Although tech has made it easier to operate in many ways, sometimes it can be a double-edged sword. These days, there's no need to remember phone numbers, addresses, or directions, thanks to the contact lists and maps stored in our smartphones. Your turn — how has technology affected your life?

Thanks to my iPhone, any time I want to scroll to the top of a webpage on my computer, I double-tap the top of the screen. Sadly, no Apple touchscreens yet!

We all grow up with new types of technology. For me... it was the widespread adoption of the internet and mobile phone use. Yes... I'm a Gen Yer! I think most of my generation has embraced these technologies, but since I'm a geeksugar kinda girl... I'd say I've embraced it a bit more. Technology has become my career and lifestyle. It has affected everything from my perspective on relationships, philosophy, and self motivation. :D I love technology! I kept a diary since I was 10 years old and one thing I found is that I grew older... growing up with computers... I type much faster then I can write. I'm actually a bit scornful at my elementary school teachers for making me learn cursive!!! What a waste! I'm trying to embrace a more 'cloud' lifestyle... streaming and hosting data. I think the biggest shift in my personal life is that I'm not materialistic... I don't put much weight into buying or collecting physical things... but digital... oh boy! I'm a digital girl in a digital world!
