Think of our childhood memories of entertainment and the things which come to our mind a Black & White TV and of course a Radio. Most of the time the motions were blurry on TV and the sound of Radio has got distortions as well; the adjustments we used to make by using the manual fine-tuning.
Now we could able to see that there has been technological shifting not limiting to analog to digital (Digital Video Broadcasting, FM Radio) but the introduction of IoTs (Internet of Things) aka the devices connected and well synchronized to the internet. By playing vital roles, these devices have become parts and partial of our lives.
The worst part is that these devices won’t work without an active internet connection. That’s why during natural calamities we hear that please do keep a radio touch light with ample spare of batteries as an SOS.
Over-dependence on those devices has also got adverse effects on our physical and mental health. Thus we shouldn’t forget those good old days and most importantly the basics; which acted as the foundation stones. For example, if someone has to type faster s/he needs to practice on basic QWERTY keys because it’s still the same in most of the devices. A little fine-tuning in our lives will help to put an anchor to the basics without losing the connection to adopt innovations.
