The world of technology has changed so much in the last 60 years.

Take the mobile phone for example: they have changed so much over the last 43 years since 1973 and we’ve seen super thin phones, longer lasting battery’s, specs that will simply speed up your day and fingerprint sensors that will make you feel like you’re in the future.

I began by asking Christa (17) a a-level student about what technology she uses in her day today life.

She said: “I use my computer, IPhone, IPad and TV every single day.”

Continuing Christa said: “I wouldn’t be able to live without my tech, I mainly use it to socialising and been able to talk to people I can’t meet up with.”

Christa then said: “todays society, technology has gotten a bit extreme and with all the advances its taking jobs and ruining some lives.”

I wanted to find out what different ages thought of how technology is changing and effecting our lives.

Ricky Payling (45) a salesman engineer said something a little different when it comes to what item is most important to him with that been his car.

Ricky went on to say: “it gives me so much freedom and with out it I wouldn’t be able to do my job.”

Ricky added: “My mobile is another piece of technology that I couldn’t live without, I use it to stay in contact with family that I don’t see very often.”

When asking what his opinions on tech in 2016 was Ricky said: “There no boundaries, anything is possible, its so much more advanced since I was younger.”

As you can see there are some similarities between Ricky and Christa even though there at different stages in there lives.

The main similarity been the mobile phone, they both said they use it to keep in touch and socialize with people they can’t meet up with.

Another similarity was how far they felt that technology has come along but I feel like the older generation may appreciate this more because they spent more time with older versions of the newly developed tech.
