Listening to Kelly Clarkson earler this week prompted the inspiration of this blog.So i thought about it and realised how much my life would suck without technology. Am sure all of you who have read my blogs know about my digital addiction.Indeed i would be truly lost and my life would suck without the access to technology.My handbag is a testimony to my addiction external harddrive, memory sticks and now a recent addition of a fully charged spare Blackberry battery.I kid you not i am so afraid of not been connected to the world and missing out on something.Lucky for me my friends are also very smitten with age of technology, one who recently celebrated her birthday said she would be so upset if hubby bought her jewllery when all she wanted was a new external hardrive. See guys yes we do love sparkly gifts but we are also considering digital gifts now . HI everybody my name is Verushka and yes i am addicted to the digital era.I cannot live without my phone and internet access.I did go cold turkey twice but the side effects were terrible mood swings, depression,anger,withdrawl from others are just a few of the symptoms i experienced.Though an addiction is meant to be bad i love mine and cant seem to get enough of this digital drug.ciao for now my digital addicts and in the words of Kelly Clarkson my life would suck without you
The digital bug has bitten my circle of friends and the virus is spreading daily . I am lovin the way this virus is spreading and how my friends are embracing this digital virus . We now have everyone on Blackberry BBM, 2 iPads, 2 Samsung Tablets and a netbook . All this change has taken place within a few weeks. Everyone is so keen to learn and be apart of the new techno age ! spread virus spread I am loving it. In a funny chat over tea we were discussing how if one of us became Head of our company we would issuse alll staff with tablets and laptops. The boardroom wouldhave a projector screen to watch series. Staff would be issused wih Terabite hard drives and be required to watchone hour per day at work of a series. The campus would also have a wireless internet connection with uncapped usage for downloads. AHHH the perfect work environment 🙂 The bug is defo infecting at rapid speed everyone is getting infected but loving their digital infection
This morning after a mission with bad internet signal , I made my self a cup of tea and thought how did we survive before without all this technology .
I recall my last flight home to SA , handbag contents included a mobile phone , digital camera, camcorder , DsLite consol, external hard drive and a few USB sticks and a cute pink netbook among my other girlie must haves. Strange to think that one could have so much technology in a handbag .
Seems hard to believe it but yes we did survive ,wrote letters , called people and visited more often. Life as we know it has been taken over by the rat race and our best method of contact now seems email , BBM, Whatsapp, Facebook and Twitter.I recall my first few months back from London and how I felt so cut off from the world especially my friends overseas. It was like like living in the Stone Age until I got internet access and a mobile phone.
I then realised how we in South Africa were recieving so little for the extremely high prices we paid for net access and mobile contracts. Having been an Apple mobile user in the UK I have had to downgrade to a Blackberry purely out of the finances of the mobile plans availlable.We need to make technology available to all in SA to ensure a techno savy society.Ciao for now my lovelies ………
