Are Everyday Appliances Losing their Simplistic Nature?

Everyday Appliances

There are certain items, which we rely on to enable us to complete everyday household tasks and as technology changes and evolves so do the items. There have been so many advancements in household technology that it makes you wonder if we are starting to lose sight of there initial purposes and the way in which they carry out the tasks they are supposed to be able to do. We all appreciate new technology, society tells us that we need the items and our worlds are reliant on machinery and equipment to make life significantly easier and simpler but there are occasions where technology is taking over and actually impacting the simplicity certain items are supposed to provide, instead the level of complication and involvement is increased and the task is no easier or straightforward then it was before the introduction of technology.

Everyday Appliances

Something as simple as dishwasher parts for example are becoming far more high tech than they even need to be and machinery is losing its purpose and taking on an entire new meaning. There is now a significant amount to learn in order to use the smallest items of household technology, there are a vast amount of programmes, features and applications that even techno phobes must embrace in order to use the items.

The importance of technology has always been relatively high but its importance seems to have increased dramatically with the introduction of the Internet and the attitudes and requirements that have developed as a reaction.

We all have to embrace technology whether we like it or not, it appears in every possible situation and scenario and is something that needs to be incorporated into everyday life, there is little choice about the level of technology that is in our lives and we all need to become accustomed to its forceful nature and the way in which it transforms the completion of even the smallest of tasks.

There is a very strong argument that we are too reliant on technology and would struggle to survive without it, we are consumed by the every changing items and the advancements in technology, the latest gadgets that we all have an overwhelming desire to own and use.

We often believe that technology makes everything easier, that without it tasks would be too complicated to fulfil, we seem to forget that for so many years the world was able to cope just fine without things such as the Internet and mobile phones and even household items such as toasters and washing machines. As technology increases we are forced to move with it, forgetting the basic skills we have learnt as we no longer have a need to use our own skills and techniques to complete tasks, merely to use the technology that does the task for us.
