Technology is a tremendous asset to our lives and has worked its way into every aspect of society. Searching the web for immediate answers, news sent directly to our phones, even banking is now done online and with our mobile devices.

The ability to swipe a credit card significantly increases our willingness to buy things, especially on a whim. The classic excuse of “I don’t have any cash on me” is getting more and more challenging to use, since that can usually be refuted with the accessibility of your credit card.

From remote control locomotives to trains that go over 200 mph, the industry is looking forward to the next best thing.

Hiking and backpacking season is upon us. Whether you enjoy day hikes in the park or week long backpacking trails, technology is important even if you’re trying to get away from it all. The “there’s an app for that” slogan doesn’t work when you’re out in absent cell tower areas. So before you hit the trail, make sure you have tech resources to be prepared for your hike.
This is a piece of technology that should be used by backpackers in remote areas. Phones normally don’t work on deep trails so having a GPS can be handy while trying to navigate backwoods trails. Make sure to get one waterproof, there’s no reason to cut costs when getting a GPS. In some instances a quality GPS can save someone’s life.

Money can’t buy happiness, but these days it can buy you some pretty cool stuff. As home automation starts to be a thing of the present rather than the future, home gadgets are becoming just as cool as any other portion of the tech sector. Don’t believe it? Let me build my case.
Exhibit 1: Home Security
Most cable companies offer home security over your wireless network that can be accessed from any device, even remotely. (Although if my home security is only as reliable as my Comcast wireless, I’m in trouble) These systems can detect the sounds of breaking glass, and even help with flooding detection. But my pick for home security is this home lock from Goji. The sleek design and welcome message are enough to make it look high tech, but this lock also features bank-level security, wi-fi access, and snaps photos of visitors and alerts you via text message and email.

The future is evidently now, and many of those neat-o gizmos you ogled over in the cartoons and movies are quickly becoming a reality. Although floating cars are still a ways away, smartwatches are here and they are big, bold and busting out quite a few unexpected stops. A true standout among a small, elite crowd is the newly revisited and remodeled Pebble Steel, a striking and highly capable smartwatch that’s surprisingly affordable (averaging around $249.99) and amply professional in appearance. A popular, fashion-oriented and well-polished product indeed, the new Pebble Steel has much more on its mind than just the time of day.
Residing on the upper tier of functionality and flare, the Pebble Steel smartwatch has been quickly making a name for itself during its short lifespan, already outclassing its predecessor, the original Pebble, which in only twelve months of availability secured a home on well over 300,000 wrists. The Pebble is successfully laying claim to an expanding smartwatch kingdom, and it seems that the new Steel version is about to put a fork in the remaining competition. At least for the time being.
