One thing that I love about technology is that it makes more music available to people through different music platforms. Technology today makes it easy to create playlists on those platforms. For example, Spotify makes it easy to pick a playlist with whatever songs you want on it. In the celebration of summer break and being able to have a customized flow of music, here is a playlist of great summer songs that you can include in your own summer playlist!
Technology has changed the way the world works in many different ways. Cars made today run off of electricity instead of gas, almost everything has a touchscreen, and social media is everywhere. One misconception that people have today is that newspapers are dying when they actually are not. Some people might think this is true because you can hop on any social media platform or any electronic device and get a piece of news. People argue that technology is ruining newspapers. The misconception is that no, technology is not ruining newspapers, in some ways it is helping them stay in business. In this article, we will discuss ways in which newspapers are not dying and how technology is helping newspapers instead of hurting them. Continue reading “Why Newspapers Aren’t Dying” »

Following a horrific crash a decade ago that killed 11 people and injured 180 more, Southern California’s commuter train network began investing time and energy in safer train technology to protect passengers from collisions. This new safety technology is designed with passengers in mind and has appeared to be successful. Another collision occurred in February, when a Metrolink train smashed into a truck just northwest of Los Angeles. Only 28 people were injured, 31 were not, and there were no deaths. Three out of four of the passenger cars, including the “cab” car located at the front of the train has “crash energy management” technology, according to Metrolink. So what is this new technology and why does it work? Continue reading “Better, Safer Train Technology” »
If you’re looking to do something philanthropic, how about pledging your support to a few Kickstarter projects?

Searching the web for immediate answers, news sent directly to our phones, even banking is now done online and with our mobile devices. While the innovation of technology has increased the convenience in our lives, it also has some negative drawbacks when it comes to finances. 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.

New technology and trains don’t appear to go together. For a transportation technology that has been around for almost two centuries, it would hard to imagine trains being on the forefront of new technologies. But if you take a closer look, trains have been steady in their adaptability and innovation in technology. From remote control locomotives to trains that go over 200 mph, the industry is looking forward to the next best thing. High speed rails are seen in Europe and Asia and could eventually appear in the United States, making a trip from New York to Miami a plausible idea.
