Digital Wellbeing: Technology and our daily lives



[ Music playing ] I think technology, in general, has been worked into everyone's day-to-day life. It is the first thing I do when I wake up, and when I go to bed. It's easy to just pick up your phone, turn it on. Call a ride, and just go wherever you want. New places to eat, new places to explore. It's great to stay in touch. I met my girlfriend on an online dating app, so I'd say that's a positive right there. [ Voiceover offscreen ] [ Thinking ] Oof. Oh it's definitely more in control of me. My biggest issue with it is knowing when to stop. Five and ten minutes here and there, and I feel like takes up, you know, takes up a bunch of my day. I feel like it's in control of me, like if my phone's dead for like half the day or something, and I'm going crazy. I think my math grade is the way it is because of my phone. Now I notice my eyes are like a little, like I blink a little bit more, they get tired. You should just throw his phone away. [ Laughs ] Usually, I feel in control of technology. Usually. Usually I can catch myself and be like, "You need to chill out." I think you have to set a limit, and say that you control the phone, it doesn't control you. I'd say most people hate on technology, but if you're using it for good things, I think it's really helpful. Well we think it's important that they do have access to it and learn it. Technology is, not so much as a necessary evil, it's a necessary good that could go either way. You know, the jury's out. It's up to us as to what we do with the technology.

    Digital wellbeing is an important feature but only limited to very few devices. If Google really want to make people's life better, maybe solve this problem would be great.

    It's great but it's also making people dumber/ignorant in a sense.
    We've started the de-evolution in our brains to quit thinking and storing things we know!
    Just *Google It!*, it's so easy. We're re-wiring our Brains with all this technology.
    Now the question is, " Is it a good thing or bad thing?

    NOTE: Back in 1996-98 when Yahoo, Dogpile and a few other search engines were out there my favorite at the time was a new engine called Google*. I always tried to tell people to just, "Google It" and they would find whatever it was you were looking for, Yahoo at the time was the top leader and not a good one. So in my mind, I coined the phrase, *Just Google It 21-22 years ago.
    Anyway, remember Z-Filter? To me, it was the seed for YouTube. We had some great post's on there and were a great community!
    (MiRC, ICQ, Yahoo Messenger & more!)

    Everyone, have a Great Day! I've just got a reminder for my Nephews Ball game I must attend later. I remembered but technology reminded me. 😉
