Have you ever thought about how much our lives have changed since the personal computer revolution began in 1977? We’ve come a long way from desktops, laptops, tablets, and smartphones, and most of us are familiar with the basics of computing.
We know what a CPU is, RAM is random access memory, and we know what a CD and DVD are. But most of us just want to be able to use the tech we have to do the things we want to do. With that little bit of knowledge, we can shop online, travel, shop at the bank, and book medical appointments. Some people are tech-savvy, while others are tech-obsessed.
For instance, some of us might still be trying to figure out what holograms are, but in England, you can go to a sold-out show to see ABBA!
ChatGPT has been all the rage lately. Some people don’t know how it works, but a church service recently in Germany was completely written and spoken through ChatGPT avatars. People who are tech-savvy say digital IDs and currencies are coming up soon, but once they’re in place, they could really mess with our freedom. Pretty soon, we might not be able to go to the grocery store without downloading their app.
