No Other Way To Live Since 1995, the year I was born technology has changed for the better. It has made jobs that would normally take forever to do by hand 80% more faster to complete. It has given that person who is bored out of their mind something to occupy their time. Without technology the world we know and love would not be what it is today.

If cell phones weren’t invented I’d definitely be bored 75% of the time. Gaming systems since the time I was old enough to play them have changed dramatically. When I was born video game systems were on the rise, I came into the generation of Playstaion, Xbox, and Nintendo that play bunch of games…
