In spite of the world of innovation we live in, most people are not particularly technologically savvy. They don’t pay attention to the exciting things that are happening all around us, especially in the think tanks of innovation. They only know when the media pounds the appearance of the new. The average person goes through life mechanically using the fruits of the labor of the nerds of the world who are constantly upgrading the ordinary things we depend on. We have a lot to thank them for but we take it all for granted. We wait impatiently for the newest cell phones, laptops, tablets, and more. We want to be up to date and with it. We want to impress our friends. While the face of the world—houses, planes, cars, clothing, trains—have not changed, the world of electronics has undergone a major revolution. I love that I live in this era and am fully a part of it. I don’t want to be one of those people who loves to be old hat. It is exciting if you understand the technology and can follow the innovations. Because of the insatiable desire for the new, there will always be advancements at all times. We can’t even anticipate what is coming next! We will never tire of our gadgets, gear, and digital toys. It is a new kind of communication we seek that makes for global integration. We are more social then ever by keeping in constant contact with friends, family, and colleagues. Our lives are an open book to be shared with all.
Take something as mundane as a mere, ordinary battery. What a difference a lithium ion 18650 battery makes. I read about it here http://www.flashlightpro.net/best-18650-flashlights-and-best-18650-batteries/ It is rechargeable so it part of the ecological movement and it has been designed for all of our high drain electronics. It is better than the old models in every way. Even if you do use the newer battery just for your flashlight, you better get with it in other ways. You will notice the longer life and energy savings. So take a look at all your cordless appliances and make the change in the name of our planet. Who doesn’t believe in sustainability today? So if your old flashlight is passé, by all means get a new one that uses the 18650. There is a time to get rid of old standards and embrace modernity, even if it means a bit of outlay of cold hard cash. Keeping up with the times in my book is a personal obligation. I try to upgrade whenever possible and to be mindful of waste, recycling, landfill saturation, and more.
Most people don’t even know about these lithium ion rechargeable batteries and they stock up at the nearest discount store on the wrong thing. If this blog does nothing else, let it help you amend your ways. It is certainly not difficult to make the switch and become part of the savvy generation. Go to it!
