It’s a whole new world out there. I’m sure you will savor it, once you get a taste of it. We can easily get spoiled with these finer things in life where not too long ago some were just considered a luxury and well beyond what a regular person could afford. Not now, however.

Today, we have so much at our fingertips to make life not only easier, but a lot more fun too. Because of today’s technology, it is possible and affordable what was once thought to be luxuries.

Here are just a few ways to simplify your life with technology:

  1. Convert your paper filing cabinet to a digital filing cabinet. Scanning and saving records digitally saves space and makes it easier to retrieve documents. I converted to a paperless, digital system.
  2. Take advantage of direct deposit along with online bill pay to make financial tasks easy. Save on trips to the bank! Most banks have online bill pay. You can even set up your monthly bill payments to happen automatically. No need to write checks and mail bills each month. There are even money management programs available that will balance your checkbook and track your budget expenses.
  3. Ditch your dial-up and go with broadband if you frequently use the Internet. Think about how much time you will save not having to wait for pages to load. Remember that’s why they used to call it “the World Wide Wait”.
  4. Online shop to save money on your purchases, gas and travel time.
  5. Purchase a digital camera. You will be able to store your photos onto your computer. No need to go to the drugstore anymore to send your film away to be developed.
  6. Consider a VoIP service. Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) services like Skype that allows you to talk for practically free to anyone in the whole world.
  7. Use portable music players so you can carry all your music with you. Download the songs you want to buy instead of buying the whole album with songs that you don’t want.
  8. Take advantage of PDAs. They help you remain organized at home, work and while traveling.
  9. Control your lights with your iPhone or iPad!
  10. You can even adjust your thermostat or check on your web cam too!
  11. Take advantage of one-touch controls for your audio, video, lighting, heating, air conditioning and security systems. It’s time to streamline technology such as iPhone home control and iPad home control.
  12. Streamline the technology in your home for your comfort and convenience. Purchase a home theater system utilizing an automated home theater. Have your very own home control theater. Save money on gas and food that you would normally buy when going to a theater. Consult an Audio visual solutions firm on how to take advantage of automation in your home or office.

Today’s technology will protect you and keep you comfortable as it entertains you all at the same time! The actual systems are complex but the way you control them is easy to do.
