Technology has become an integral part of our lives. Everything that we do every day of our lives is somehow connected to technology.
So, it would not be wrong to say that technology is the driving force of the contemporary era. It is what is making things more comfortable and more convenient for contemporary folk.
The smart TVs that can be operated from your smartphones;
The smartphones that can do anything from calling to world abomination;
The smart home can do everything a home does use a remote;
Now, in a world that is so dominated by technology, can a person who does not know how to use it survive?
It would be complicated for such a person to manage in this world. They would not even be able to do the simplest of tasks like transferring money online, because they would not know.
So what is the solution here?
Can you think of a way that can help a person learn to use anything related to technology within 10 minutes?
You might think that what I am talking about is bizarre and highly impossible, but it is not. When you would read my answer, you would agree with me.
YouTube – The Saviour of Technologically Inept
You must be aware of the fact that we can get a better grasp of concepts when we look at their pictorial representations.
Pictures and movies remain in our memory more than words and books.
That is why YouTube has become the one-stop destination for all the technological needs of the world.
From getting the cheats and tricks to become the ultimate PUBG player to getting to know how to use an ATM or the newer Cash Deposit Machines, a YouTube video would quickly sort out all your technological woes in mere 10 minutes.
And the best part is the fact that the videos do not use too much of the technical jargon that people like me, with an English degree, would not understand.
My 70-year-old parents and I have learnt a great deal from YouTube, as I am sure some of you have as well.
The Home Technology- Check!
Starting the learning from home today, all of us have more than enough technical gadgets in our homes. And using all of them correctly and to their full potential is not easy at all on our own. However, YouTube can make it easy.
When I bought an induction cooktop from Amazon, the moment I opened it, I knew I was out of my element. I read the entire manual, and I still was not sure whether what I was doing was correct or not, because the water would not merely boil.
Then I saw a YouTube Tutorial on its use. It had more than 180,000 views, so I thought it would be useful, and it certainly was.
The step by step tutorial of pressing the right keys on the control panel saved my life and my money.
From connecting Alexa to your home’s lighting to learning all about your smart phone’s ability, everything is better learnt through YouTube videos.
The Official Work- Check!
Today, offices have become ultra-modern and extremely technical. If you do not advance with technology, your career will become stagnant.
The accounting and auditing software that can sync every penny spent by the office into the books;
The graphical and diverse websites that are used to make websites seem too good to be accurate;
The machines and equipment used by the medical staff to treat patients with a more precise understanding of their sickness;
The high-tech security systems that are keeping an eye on every nook and corner of the building;
The total automation at work that has taken full responsibility for handling the miscellaneous work off the actual workforce;
Now an employee, who is not even competent enough to use a simple tablet properly, is not going to succeed much. That is why; knowing the little things about the technologies used at the workplace become a career advantage, and YouTube would easily give it to you.
The Finance Management- Check!
Managing finances is extremely important in a world where inflation is more common than appraisals.
And technology is there to you manage the same.
There are tens and tens of applications available in the app store that will allow you to keep track of your expenses, investments and savings.
And who would help you in knowing the way to use them?
Yes, you are right; it is YouTube.
Let alone managing finances. YouTube can even tell you how you can procure no credit check loans with no guarantors through its videos. I know this because I helped my friend apply to one based upon a YouTube review of these loans and their benefits; there are plenty, trust me.
The Upgrade and Advancements- Check!
Getting an understanding of technology just once and becoming complacent about it is not going to do any good.
As technology keeps upgrading and advancing itself, you have to keep upgrading and progressing yourself well.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is vastly different from the Samsung Galaxy Note 10. The former has an S pen like the latter but without Bluetooth connectivity. In the Note 10, you can click beautiful selfies by clicking on a button on the S pen.
How do I know this?
A YouTube video comparing the two devices gave me all the information I needed to know.
In the end, all I want to say is that technology is not going anywhere; rather, it would keep on developing itself and making itself more complicated with it.
YouTube is the best way to do that, and within 10 minutes, you will be able to use and enjoy all the technological advancements with your competency in using it.
So, the question is, do you want to remain technologically inept, or do you want to advance with technology?
What is your answer going to be?
