THE CHANGING WORLD
The world is has never been the same. People living a century ago, can never imagine the world we are living in. Over the last one hundred years we have seen extraordinary changes in technology. We had been on the foul smelling four leg carts and now at the foul smelling gas consuming four wheels. We wished to be like birds flying here and there, now we are visiting planets and isolated areas. We dreamed to go “Around the world in Eighty Days” and now we communicate across the world in seconds. The culture of the people changes accordingly with the devolvement in science and technology. From the literature to living styles, every thing changes shape with the passage of time.
Changes in our world are occurring at the both sides of the spectrum. With all these developments, there are also some negative effects. Pollution and global warming are the best examples caused by these changes. Change in the living standards should be for the betterment of mankind and to make this world a better place to live.
One single thing which we are unable to predict is the continual change in the technology.
Technology has enabled us to connect with others any where in the world.
Today we’re no longer forced to send letters through the postal service, or spare some time to specially meet some one just to talk. Thanks to technology today we can communicate with any one in this world just in seconds. Mobile phones were launched in 1983, changing the route of the world: connecting people around the world.
The advent of the Short Message Service (SMS) allowed inarticulate youths everywhere to express their interest. You can imagine this great change by just knowing that in 1992 first SMS was sent and now 6,700,000,000 SMS are sent every day!
Today, digital technology is changing this whole concept of “mass media”. There used to be a known “news hour” and a place to go to for the news, but now we get the news on the move (mobile phones). Put another way, we used to go to the news, but now the news comes to us. On the internet, people create even more content of their own using blogs (personal websites accepting contributions) and social networking sites like MySpace, Facebook and YouTube. Transportation:
In this modern era, technology has enabled us to travel thousands of kilometers in some days or just some hours. People used to travel through wooden carts powered by animals or humans. Today we travel around the world by fuel consuming cars or by flying in planes here and there.
People living in the world before us never imagined how the gadgets of today will work. Gadgets are considered to be more unusually or cleverly designed than normal technological objects at the time of their invention.
Here are some interesting gadgets;

This chair is packed with features. To start off, there are 12 vibration motors throughout the chair that are synchronized with the games action, including the PS2, Xbox, GameCube, PC, Mac, PS1, and Xbox Live. For audio only, you can use all those and your iPod, DS, PSP, or generic MP3 player.
Good news for inexperienced drivers is news that Volkswagen’s Touran and Sharan will come with Valeo’s Park4U auto-parking system, which uses ultrasonic sensors to automatically park the car without scraping across neighboring vehicles.
ION AUDIO’S COZ-E:
The Electric Snuggie the COZ-E is essentially an electric blanket with sleeves, and it has a control pad with a green light for low heat, a yellow light for medium heat, and a red light for high heat. Now this is an electric quilt which warms you up any one in few seconds!
