As technology has continued to reduce in size and become more sophisticated, people’s lifestyles are increasingly be impacted by it. One of the latest trends is the greater availability of certain types of technology to the general public. For example, 3D movies became very popular when they were released in theaters and fans flocked to see them. Now the same people can go to a retail store and easily find films, televisions and movie players that can create near the same experience right in their own homes. As the technology becomes more popular and commonplace, it also drops in price. This brings it into greater availability to those with limited budgets.
The internet has now taken a greater role in the business work week and will continue to increase its influence in the next few years. From interactive websites like http://www.direct.tv to social media networks, everything has become easily accessible. More and more individuals are opening online stores to sell goods that were only once found in traditional storefronts. This has allowed many who are unable to work in a normal job to be productive and very successful and others to avoid the rat race associated with a normal outside the home work week. The current generations are comfortable with this change, while some who are older have had to adapt to the shift in business from storefront to online. Society has also sped up in some circumstances as people race to keep up with the current technology as it changes at a breathtaking pace.
