These pictures can then be viewed on the 2.5" LCD monitor built in the camera. Unlike analogue cameras, my digital camera's flash lightens as far as 10.5m which helps produce brighter photos. My Cyber-shot has 64MB built-in, it also has a memory card slot, so more photos can be taken in one session and unlike analogue cameras, you can copy these photos to a computer/laptop to save space on the memory card. ...read more.

Having the need to be able to socialise with my friends on the go, I am able to socialise with friends and family through sending SMS/MMS messages. This service is very quick hence making my socialising experience more sufficient. By calling friends from my mobile phone, I am able to do other things rather than sitting next to a landline phone. With the phone's Bluetooth feature, I am able to socialise with my friends wirelessly. By using Bluetooth, I can send memorable photos, favourite songs and even captured video clips to anyone else with the Bluetooth feature capability. * Internet - Windows Live Messenger (WLM) a) Description of Windows Live Messenger WLM is an instant-messaging internet technology that allows me to talk to people, mainly friends, for free. ...read more.


Also it uses advance search which provides you with more accurate results. Google contains special features such as definitions, file types, images, book search, web page translator so you can translate the text and understand it. I use it to research school work and to find websites for personal interests. b) How does it meet my needs? When I have the need to research a topic that I am learning at school, going to the library can be quite time consuming so using Google can help me find what I need a lot quicker. If I didn't have access to Google, then researching the traditional way would mean I wouldn't have as much time to socialise or complete my other homework pieces hence detentions. Conclusion Technology in our world today has vastly increased to that of a merely decade ago. Technology greatly impacted my life. I relentlessly rely on technology to find solutions in meeting my needs through the simplest and most advanced methods developed. Without technology, every task I come across would be so time consuming and confusing. For example, listening to music has become so advanced compared to a decade ago, you would have to go to the stores and buy cassettes and CDs with a few music tracks recorded, however now you can download digital media and transfer the media to a portable media player or an MP3 player and MP3 players can hold thousands of songs, I only wish to see what the future of technology holds for us. ?? ?? ?? ?? ...read more.
