dear mylotters, in daily life we use so many electrical and electronic goods, many are digital, microprocessor based, ike digital diary, digital balance in shops, my digital weighing machine, digital camera. even the washing machine is microprocessor based now, car doors open with remotes, tv runs with remotes, the toy car, toy plane are remote controlled. what to speak of aeroplanes and space ships? what is your view on this matter? do you think it is good to be dependent on them? do you think it is safe and brain boosting? can you site some advantages if you become dependent on using them? please share your views. ann

hi tigeraunt I cannnot wear an ordinary watch as I have too much static magnetic force in my body. a fancy watch stops and i get it repaired and wear it ten minutes and it stops. so I learned to wear a didgital watch and frankly I like it better as it tells the real time.i am all for digital things and do not think they hurt our brains at all as we can still use our brans so much they keep healthy.

hello ms hatley, it is okay to get typo errors. your sentences are very well written and very simple and easily understood and that is what matters. i seldom wear my watch because there is a big wall clock in the office and when i am out, i rely on my cellphone. yes... digital things are a thing of today. have a very nice day. ann

Dear Anny We are getting dependent on them, and that is reason for our physical inactivity, earlier i used to wash clothes by hand, grind spices, rice using stone grinder manually, that needed lot of efforts, kind of auto exercises. my daughter in laws don't do, they seems to age faster than me.. Thank you so much for sharing HAPPY MOTHERS DAY Happy posting, cheers. Namastey. Kalyani

hello kal, digital things have helped us on our everyday work. it has made it easier for us. we get to have more work done with it. but i guess being dependent on it will lose the usual physical work we do hence we get less exercise. also, more is added on our electricity bill. have a nice day. ann

To be dependent on technology is nothing new... it goes all the way back to the caveman. If they didn't develop the arrow for hunting, we wouldn't be here. The age of discovery is another time in human evolution when people actually wrote stuff down and our knowledge was greatly increased. Interesting that knowledge comes in 2's. Aristotle and Plato, Newton and Kepler, Tesla and Edison, not to mention all the musical geniuses.... all seemingly popping up at the same time. Then you have the industrial revolution... machines helping make life easier (Whitney, Ford, [Edison & Tesla].... Now we are in the computer revolution and that brings on another shift in the way people do things. Now is this good/bad/indifferent.... If we know how to use a computer or how to use a calculator or how to use the device that will give us the same answer as what we would have rather gotten another way (counting on fingers... math on paper) then I don't see a problem in it. The other day the mixer went out when my wife was cooking and she had to mix the batter by hand... with a wooden spoon. It took her a lot longer but it got the job done. When it comes time that we can't be self-sufficient then it is time to evaluate where we are... if we can still use a wooden spoon but choose to use a mixer... we're OK. Thanks Zelo

Although I think the digital age is great and useful, it also hinders our activity. I remember when I was young, we had no computers or gadgets like today and when we played, we had to rely on our imagination. We used to run around, play ball, ride bikes a burn off all the energy. Today, there is almost no need to think and be active. I see kids that are over weight, I do not see them playing like we did. Also processed foods are part of the problem with weight. But, I do love and enjoy technology.
