How did I ever survive living in an archaic world without modern technology? I remember the days of physically moving your body up from the couch over to the TV to change the channel. A time when there were few television networks, all of which were local by the way, would sign off by airing a taped recording of the American flag proudly waving while the Star Spangled Banner played in the background. Today, I absolutely could not imagine living without modern technologies such as a cell phone, digital cable, the Internet, and microwave. The cell phone has got to be one of the most profitable and marketable portable pieces of technology available to us today. I can still recall my first cell phone. It was ugly, heavy, and the size of a brick, which incidentally also doubled as a self-defense system in case I was physically threatened all I had to do was throw it at my attacker's head then they'd be knocked out cold. Today, I own a very sleek model that allows me to listen to MP3s, access my email, access the internet, send pictures and videos, text message friends, and speak with other people. Although I cannot use it as a deterrent from being attacked, it constantly is with me. It's become my security blanket. Just as my cell phone has become my security blanket, digital cable has become my constant companion. With all the different channels and vast selection of shows available to me, I am rarely bored. Unlike the television programming of the past, cable networks do not sign off. No longer subjected to the audio of the Star Spangled Banner playing against the backdrop of the American flag waving, we now have infomercials to signal to us that it's time to go to bed. Digital cable is a good friend, always there for me whenever I need company, but I do eventually need some type of human interaction and that's when I turn to my other buddy, the Internet. The Internet is a great tool for making human friends. I can't even remember how I

    In the early days, someone probably denounced cable by saying, “Television is like water, and no one will ever pay for something they can get for free.” Still, people subscribed. Cable provided a tremendous service for those who couldn't receive signals by local affiliates. It rapidly became part of the television landscape. Fifty years later, the television world is littered with cable conglomerates that now compete with satellite companies by offering hundreds of digital channels and consumer-friendly interactive services.

    One advantage of having cell phones is that you have access to assistance in emergency situations. For instance, if your car gets stalled on the side of the road, you can use your cell phone to obtain help. But sometimes, with cell phones in many peoples’ hands, we essentially feel as if big brother is watching. If we, as drivers, do anything wrong, someone is going to use their cell phone to call the police. But this should actually be an encouragement for us. With cell phones available at hand, it is definitely a relief to be able to immediately report something that seems unusual or may cause a threat to society or to…

    Nowadays technology has unbelievable speed in proceeding without any interval. Its effect spectrum spread through human life, namely: Communication, Medical science, Computer and transport. While generally people mind you to computers and telecommunication devices ( means) and they think it is single side of technology; from my point of view, transport is placed in the first stage of importance which I’d like to refer to some aspects. Initially, it creates a safe travel with highest securities. Technology for the sake of secure transportion, suggests many stylish planes. For instance, in air industry transportation we face with huge steps toward future. A couple of days ago one airplane belonging to American airline had a essential landing in a river with roughly 200 passengers and crews; which all of them (all of whom) safely had left the airplane.

The scientists got assistance from new generation of fuel which secures the lives of some special species of plants; they could decrease approximately %50 of air pollution by airplanes. Furthermore, they have had successfully tests on cars and others vehicles. Last but not least, I want to highlight many update facilities which are using (used) in vehicles and public transport. They make passengers comfort and ease journey even in long-distant travels. In conclusion, in this regard, the progress in technology is not a bit to disregard, also I totally assume which these changes have been effected ( affected) transportation more than other departments and all of them is positive for human…
