The term technology is one which spans a wide assortment of uses, ideas, method and products. In fact, the blanket term technology is the way in which the use of computerized and computer based applications is vital in the enhancement of other products and even services.
One of the most portable forms of technology is used by many people every day. Mobile handsets, cell phones, smart phones and mobile computing devices all use technology for basic and advanced operations. The inclusion of operating system technology and enhanced video graphic technology is what helped transform traditional cell phones used for just voice communications in to the smart phones of today which allow for advanced features such as video chatting, posting in real time to social media sites, included and embedded internet browsing functionality and even text messaging which can include pictures, sounds and even video.
In terms of pictures, video and sound; technology advancements have turned grainy pictures once taken on film in to digital versions which can be enhanced through the use of photo editing software or by using a high tech camera with high resolution and technology features which allow users to change the way in which picture, video and sound is recorded. Sound itself benefits from technology, as computer software can be used to add instantaneous background music, remove background noise and even adjust singing voices to sound clearer and more in pitch.
The ways in which technology have impacted daily life is wide and vast. From enhanced computer imaging for medical films and treatment to laser robotics for more precise surgical methods; technology touches just about everything. Vehicles use technology for braking and system monitoring and GPS navigation; television uses technology for clear picture quality and cable television which provides on demand services; and schools incorporate basic technology in to classrooms by using computers to help in teaching. Technology continues to improve, which in turn keeps changing the way in which the things we do, use and need in life advance to becoming increasingly high tech. In fact, many people do not always realize how much technology permeates society.
