In today’s fast-paced technological world, it is surprising that new gadgets are not being mass-marketed every few minutes. Personal computers, once considered to be owned by only a few individuals, are now ubiquitous. Personal computers are a virtual necessity for students.
Along with the increasing popularity of personal computers, we see a plethora of gadgets and technological advancements. While we may not see a new widget every few minutes, it seems like every couple of months, we hear about a computer with more storage space or a new device that one can connect to their computer.
Some gadgets that hit the market are superfluous or inaccessible to the general population due to their cost or limited supply. Costly devices are reserved for those who can afford them, and their price decreases as new technology replace them.
Unnecessary gadgets are not practical and are mainly purchased by those who have an affinity for them. For example, webcams, while fun to play with, are not essential for computer operation and are primarily used for leisure activities.
The more purposeful advancements in computer technology revolve around those that increase the computer’s ability to manage certain tasks and those that increase the storage space of the computer. Many personal computer owners find themselves craving more space to store songs or various other files and often wish that their computers were faster.
While many computers produced today have excessive storage space, it is almost impossible to fill a personal computer. These advancements permit a much speedier and more efficient functioning computer.
In conclusion, the rapid progression of technology has brought about an array of gadgets and technological advancements. While some are superfluous or inaccessible to the general population, purposeful advancements that increase the computer’s ability to manage specific tasks and those that increase the storage space of the computer are more practical. As technology continues to progress, we can expect to see more purposeful advancements that will revolutionize the way we use personal computers.
