    Weekly Topic Inspiration: Using Technology to Simplify Your Life

    We often talk about how technology makes life more complicated- how do you keep things simple, or how to do you use technology (gadgets, software, tools, applications) to make your life even simpler? 
    If you don't know what to write about this week, consider joining the Weekly Topic Inspiration crew and writing about this!

    There are a lot of gadgets available for left-handed people (well everyone, but it  is helpful for lefties) that weren't in existence decades ago. Considering I have little dexterity in my right hand  that is great. There is no way I could open a can with a regular can opener, for example.

    Technology makes life complicated? Sorry, I can't agree with that statement. Technology makes life simple.

    If you want my choice of software, I pick MS office. MS Office makes life a lot simpler.

    Technology helps me in numerous ways on a daily basis. As I am getting ready to go to work I check the "google maps" app on my phone and look at the traffic layer so I can plan my route to work based upon traffic.  I drive into work and say if my check engine light were to come on, I'd go to autozone and ask them to run the code on my car and plug my car in to their computer to find out what is wrong with it.  On the weekends when I travel to go into NYC I check the train schedules via my cell phone as I'm walking to the train station to make sure I'm catching the right one. As I'm skateboarding through NYC I use my skateboarding app to figure out how many miles I have skated along with top speed, top elevation, etc.  There are just so many different things I use my phone for and that's just one piece of technology.

    Fear not, digital greeting cards, or e-cards, are more user-friendly than ever. Not only are e-cards far less labor intensive, because there are no envelopes stuff and address, they are also instant. You can program a time and date to send your card(s) or send them now; your friends will receive your greeting or invitation immediately. read more

    My worst habit has now become emailing stuff to myself. Almost daily now, I send email attachments from the downstairs pc to my upstairs office quad core. Why. ? It just seems easier to carry on working while they upload and I do not have to start formatting dvd discs. I dread to think I am sending them half the way around the world to end up two floors up. Flash drives are a lot easier to use but where ever I look it appears to have a cable hanging out of it. My next post will relate to the use of using dvd/cd discs as a Frisbee. lol

    I wrote my hub on the Nintendo Wii and the Just Dance games. While my hub isn't really on the type of technology most have written about, this gaming device has simplified my life.
    I can exercise and play with my kids at the same time all while  teaching them the value of healthy competition and that you don't have to win every time but just have fun while you're competing.

    Email is wonderful and awful at the same time. I can follow the news.  It comes to me everyday like the newspaper.  Connecting with friends and family is wonderful, but if I don't read it several times a day my life is highjacked.
