I use digital technology in three areas in my life: home, school, and when I go out. Sometimes, there have been some beneficial aspects of digital technology and there are the disappointing shortcomings that go along with them. At home, I can watch television, go on the computer, or play video games. I have loved watching television all my life since I was younger; I love to watch my favorite shows and movies each time they come on. The one thing I do not like about television is when there is nothing good to watch and that’s when I go and play video games but they also get tiring on several occasions. Everyday, I use different kinds of digital technology on certain levels and there are those time when I become disappointed over their flaws.
I use digital technology for other purposes, such as my iPod touch; it’s not just for listening to music, but it also has so many different Apps for almost about anything. My Android phone also has different Apps for just about anything, but I hardly use them. For school or college, I use the computers they use at the campus, and also, I use the printers for certain scenarios. Nowadays, people use their laptops and other handheld portable devices for school and work. Personally, I’d prefer using a pencil and a tiny notepad because they’re compatible and you can keep all your notes in them for when you can’t remember what’s your assignment. But I do use certain kinds of digital technology such as a digital calculator for Algebra and I always wear a digital watch to tell what time it is. Sometimes, I use my cell phone to make personal phone calls and I carry my iPod to listen to my music while I work. I even use my iPod Touch to check my emails, go on Facebook or Twitter, and Google stuff.
I love using digital technology for certain occasions and I’ve grown addicted to certain devices. Over the past few years, I’ve had an iPod, a cell phone, and a computer; they do have their perks but they can have their shortcomings as well. When I was in school, I used to always wear a digital watch everyday since I was in Junior High. The problems I’ve had with my digital watches is when the wrist band keeps breaking off and I had to buy a new watch. In school, I always used the computers in the class rooms and the library for when I had to do a term paper and I had to do a little research on certain topics. There have been problems with the search sites I go on; sometimes, it’s not the information I needed and sometimes, the computers don’t work properly. This year, I got a laptop and I love it. For the past few days, I have used my laptop to check my Facebook status or look on my Twitter; I even use it to write my screenplay and play games as well. I might not know the other qualities of digital technology, but I am willing to find out.
