Top 5 reasons why today’s gizmos are popular
To go even deeper into the recent popularity of gizmos, here are a few reasons why gadget sales increased so much.
1. They keep us connected
Let’s say that you have a sibling or a best friend who lives in another country; now, imagine that you only had the gizmos of the past. Could you still talk to them so often, like you did at home?
People that are nearing their 30s right now know the struggle of having to pay good cash to send an international text, let alone a phone call. Now, because there’s WiFi everywhere, everyone is on social media. People have apps like Messenger, WhatsApp, Skype – and they all keep us constantly connected.
It doesn’t matter if you install them on your phone, computer, laptop or any Internet-connected device. Today’s gizmos are so versatile that they help you stay in touch with just about anything.
2. They give us a better sense of safety
Take security gizmos, for instance; who could afford to pay for a high-tech camera in the past? You’d only find them in large enterprises that could afford the expense. Now, practically every house can own them.
Just look at the Night Owl for example. (Please allow me to shamelessly make a little promotion here)
8 cameras around your house keep an eye on everything. And keep you even informed in real time!?! Amazing!!
And the best part is that you can take that “security” with you. Since you can connect those cameras to your smartphone, you’ll have full control over what’s going on in your house (and it will definitely scare off any thieves).
3. They’re portable and compact
Think about what a computer could do 10 or 20 years ago. Now think about what a smartphone can do today. In all senses, your cell phone is a personal computer that you can carry around everywhere. You can edit documents, send texts, watch videos on YouTube – it’s basically “one size fits them all.”
This applies to most gizmos nowadays too: laptops, tablets, wristwatches – who would have thought that, one day, you could send texts from a wristwatch?
All these items are incredibly easy to carry around right now, so it’s no wonder their popularity went up.
4. They help us with our work
Today, there are many gadgets that help speed up our workflow – from office work to house chores. Let’s say you’re a housewife, and you didn’t have an electric vegetable cutter. You’d have to chop those vegetables by hand, and that is a process that would take long hours.
And let’s be honest; no one is willing to waste that much time on such a dull task nowadays.
So, we love gizmos because they make things much easier for us.
5. They’re simply entertaining
Admit that you have at least 2 or three games on your phone to keep you busy when you are bored. The advantage of today’s smartphones, tablets, and other gadgets is that they can handle pretty much everything.
You can install high-tech games that are catchy, and you want to play them every day. Remember the Pokemon GO hype? You wouldn’t have seen people so focused on a game before, would you?
That’s because gadgets allow for more detailed sources of entertainment. Everyone loved to play “Snake;” but the idea of a wide, colored screen that mixes your surroundings with your favorite childhood cartoon is definitely more attractive.
These are only a few of the reasons why gadgets suddenly gained a lot of popularity in the recent years. Since they are more technologically advanced, they enable us to do some things we couldn’t have done a decade ago. They are more versatile, easy to use and extremely entertaining.
