If you look at the history books that we have today, you will realize humans have come a long way from hunter-gathering era to the global world we have today. Civilization has taken over many parts of the world even though a few are yet to experience it. One of the biggest drivers in this transformation has been the advent of technology. There have been some cases where this same technology has been blamed for issues such as climate change and production of war devices. However, when utilized well technology has many benefits that we cannot ignore. The following are some of the ways that technology has transformed the world
Brought up new jobs
As the population grows, there arises need to feed the extra people and technology has provided the means.

Those who are aggressive enough are even switching careers to try their hands in the technological field.

Think about international companies and how they hold conferences. It is now possible to hold video conferences which not only saves on resources but also makes it easy to include everyone in decision making. Businesses also have systems that auto-update themselves when one participant takes an action which reduces bureaucracy in organizations. People do not have to leave their couch to buy an item from their favorite shop as they can do it online. It even gets better because you can track your package when you are dealing with a reputable seller.
Improved media and broadcasting
History books tell us that our forefathers used weird means of communication such as smoke signals to send messages. Also in the recent past, you had to visit your nearest movie theater whenever you favorite movie premiered. Technology has now changed this, and you can create a cinema experience in your home. It is possible now to broadcast and even enhance audio and videos from your PC or a mobile device to a more appealing device such as a bigger screen using an HDMI cable.
