Technology has been around since the first human being walked the Earth. Whether it was making the first fire or making the first wheel, people have been creating technology since the beginning. Technology is not some new phenomenon of the 20th century, but a progression of human efficiency. The definition of technology is; “a manner of accomplishing a task especially using technical processes, methods, or knowledge”. Technology is taking knowledge and experience that you already have, and applying that information to complete a task in a more efficient way.

This is because the technology is so advanced that we can look multiple resources at a time and also find these resources at a more efficient time. Therefore, through constant innovations in our every day technology we can see how far we have come in just only 30 years with how much power we have with our technology, with technology the world is a much more efficient
