Since Thanksgiving is here, with this generation’s new Technology which has helped us make our lives more easier and comfier, we’ve more things to be thankful for. This Article is a Thanksgiving special Post.
#1 – Smartphones
I would say Smartphones are one of mankind’s greatest invention next to the Internet and copy/paste. Smartphones are light weight, making them easy to carry around everywhere and offers almost everything a PC/Laptop would. Smartphones are like a whole package. If you’ve a smartphone with good rear camera, you won’t require the need to buy a external camera, if you’ve a great processor you won’t require a PC/Laptop for browsing as everything can be done on Smart phones as well.

#6 – USB (Universal Serial Bus)
Back in the olden days, a USB weighed over 5KG and only stored data of about 500MB. Now we’ve USB’s which weigh barely a gram and can store over 1 terabyte (1024GB) of data. Amazing how time has changed. USB is a very useful tool which can help you backup your data or transfer it from one place to another physically without the need of a Internet connection.
#7 – Social Networks
Although Social Networks has damaged our generation, they also been helpful in bringing awareness and connecting the world, helping make it a smaller world. People tend to spend more than 6 hours everyday just using social Networks everyday. Famous social networks such as Facebook boast about 6 billion views per day. Thanks to these social networks, we know at what time the Kardashian’s had lunch today, which celebrity’s nudes got leaked and who will die next in Game of Thrones.
#8 – Wireless Connectivity
Having too many wires at home gets messy, this is where wireless connectivity comes in. The best part about this generation is that we don’t require too many wires. You can easily connect to the Internet wirelessy or use bluetooth to transfer files easily. Also there are wireless keyboards, mouses available and much more!
#9 – Copy/Paste
Admit it, copy/paste is one of the greatest feature invented in mankind. If it was not for copy paste you would never be able to complete your assignments on time or spend too much time re-writing. With copy paste you can copy over 15000 words and paste them anywhere for personal use in seconds, where as manually writing them would take you several hours and require a lot of energy.
#10 – Cloud Storage
If you’re clumsy like me, you probably suck at being able to take care of important files like documents, pictures etc. This is where Cloud storage comes in, there are many softwares out there which offer free cloud storage such as Google Drive, SpiderOak, One drive etc where you can backup your files and never have to worry about losing them ever again.
