Technology Leads The Way
Date Posted:28 October 2015
Technology has certainly changed throughout the last 50 years. Indeed in the 1950’s business offices were abuzz with the introduction of the ‘electronic typewriter’. What a great innovation was this device, improving production beyond expectations. No-one of that era could have dreamed how far and fast technology would advance. That typewriter has now become a relic swiftly replaced by the computer.
COMPUTERS IN ALL THEIR GLORY
Computers in the workplace became commonplace. They were just dumped on an existing desk – nothing ergonomic about that! Clerical staff became the operators with little or no instructions. It was a confusing time for all. Computer salesmen had little working knowledge of the machines they were promoting, further frustrating the struggling operators.
No denying it, computers were here to stay. Their obvious benefits were undeniable. Staff just had to learn and learn fast if they were to keep their jobs. This involved gleaning what they could from the information packed manuals accompanying the computers, plus a whole lot of trial and error. Of course there were companies that offered ‘in house’ advice but they were far and few between, besides having exorbitant callout charges.
HOME INVASION AND BEYOND
Finally the work force settled into managing the workings of computers and managed to keep up with the constant evolution. The next target was home consumers. Surely everyone at home needs a computer – or that was the hope of the suppliers/manufacturers. They weren’t far wrong. It would be hard to find a home now that does not have a computer of some sort.
Unfortunately the home user could not afford the technical support that industry now relied upon. Many consumers would be scratching their heads in confusion and total frustration. Friends were called upon to help – often failing.
Computers were the brunt of many an angry rant but nevertheless they made their way into every facet of the public’s life:-
- School children requiring internet access for study
- Laptop and tablet ownership required for schools & universities
- Communication via email and social media
- Internet banking
- Payment of bills
Luckily for us, along with the unrelenting growth in computer ownership have grown companies that provide affordable technical services. Computers can be bought entirely through websites that offer good sound advice. This advice assists with choosing the correct item plus friendly after sale service, as required. What a blessing!
