electronics today is so much a part of our daily lives we hardly think of the
way the world would be without electronics.
Everything from cooking to music uses electronics or electronic
components in some way. Our family car
has many electronic components, as does our cooking stove, laptop and cell
phone. Children and teenagers carry
mobile phones with them everywhere and use them to take and send pictures,
videos, and to play music. They send
text messages on the cell phone to other phones and to their home computers.
internet is becoming more common all the time, with laptops set up in cyber
cafes where people can drink coffee and check their email all at the same time.
The computer user can do all the web searching in relative privacy thanks to
the electronic accessories which can be added to the computer. Conversely, more and more transactions are being
sent electronically across the airwaves so security is becoming a larger issue
than ever before. Merchants who sell products online must be able to assure
their customers that information submitted at a website is not being accessed
by unauthorized personnel.
is a prime user of electronics, both in recording and in playback mode. Stereos, record players, tape decks, cassette
players, CD drives and DVD players are all the result of advances in
electronics technology in the last few decades.
Today people can carry a playlist of hundreds of songs around with them
easily in a very small device–easily portable. When you add Bluetooth or
headphones the music can be heard by the user, but does not disturb those
technology in cameras has increased dramatically. A digital camera is available to most
Americans at a price they can afford and cellphones often includes a fairly
sophisticated digital camera that can capture still pictures or even video
pictures and store them or transfer them to a computer where they can be saved,
shared digitally with family or friends or printed out in hard form with a
photo printer device. Pictures obtained
through a camera or by means of a scanner can be edited, cropped, enhanced or
enlarged easily through the marvel of electronics.
thousands of everyday devices that we use constantly make use of electronics
technology in order to operate. These
are products ranging from automotive engines to automated equipment in
production settings. Even artistic
efforts benefit from computer modeling prior to the committing of valuable
artistic media to create the finished product.
devices are being used in the health field, not only to assist in diagnosis and
determination of medical problems, but to assist in the research that is
providing treatment and cures for illnesses and even genetic anomalies. Equipment such as MRI, CAT and the older
X-rays, tests for diabetes, cholesterol and other blood component tests all
rely on electronics in order to do their work quickly and accurately.
Pacemakers and similar equipment implanted in the body is now almost routine.
