May Photos, Day 23—Technology


First, let me say that had I read ahead in the prompt list, I probably would’ve chosen a different subject for “something you can’t live without”.  Since I used my everyday technology for that photo, I had to think a little harder for today’s theme.

Still, I am something of a gadget freak, so finding some sort of technology around me isn’t really all that difficult.  Really, though, the subject I decided upon—3D television—is not one of my favorites.  Don’t get me wrong; I think it’s cool.  It’s especially cool that my particular television signal happens to be delivered to my new-fangled television set via a signal sent by an orbiting satellite.  Now that’s technology.  But, I’m not a big 3D fan—not in movies, not on TV.  Gives me a headache something fierce, and who wants to give themselves a headache just to watch a show?  My husband has no such problems, though he is not particularly fond of wearing the glasses.  But he’ll do it from time to time, especially if there’s a sporting event on—or if I need a model for my daily photo.

But in theory, it is really cool, and I do hope that someday 3D technology will move to something more like projected holograms or something.  Now that’s a third dimension I’d like to see.

23.  Technology

    1. Oh, I truly love technology! It's probably not surprising that while my entire career has been spent in customer service, the last 15 years have been supporting technological ventures-- satellite TV and wireless phones. Can't imagine living without some of these things now!
