Question of the Week

Question:  "Is EVERYTHING done on computers now?"

Answer:  Before I answer this question, let me ask you one: have you clicked on the link in the opening paragraph of this email and watched my special alert?  If not, please do that now and then come back here and read my answer to this week's question.

This week, I was summoned to appear for jury duty.  Before going, I had to go online and fill out a long form indicating things like my name, how long I've lived here, whether I've ever been convicted of a felony (I haven't, in case you're wondering!  LOL), etc.  When I arrived at the courthouse, I saw that anyone who had NOT gone online and filled out the form was directed to one of the 10 computers in the Jury Room.  At one of these computers, they had to fill out the same form I did.  In other words, there was no paper form to fill out; everything had to be done on the computer.

The courthouse is not the only place this is happening.  Virtually every place you go, computers are in use.  Applying for a new job?  You'll most likely do everything online.  Applying for Social Security or Medicare?  Most everything is done via computer.  Want to check show times at Disney?  Hop on the computer!  Computer usage for everyday activities is everywhere!

Let's look at some of the reasons computers have taken over many (most) of our daily interactions.
  1.  It saves paper.  By the ton!  Just think about all the paper that was saved yesterday when I went to jury duty.  50+ people filled out their information and they didn't use a single sheet of paper.
  2. It saves ink.  It goes without saying that if you're not printing forms, user manuals, etc., you're not only saving paper, you're saving ink.
  3. It allows for easy updating.  If you're a company which provides information such as a user manual, you can update that manual as things change or as mistakes are found without having to send a paper copy to all your customers.
  4. It makes for easy storage and backup.  Information stored on paper can fade or completely disappear.  A drawer full of papers could go up in smoke during a fire or be washed away during a flood.  Digital information, on the other hand, is easily stored, takes up way less space than paper and can be backed up easily.

These are just a few reasons why computers (or whatever makes up the next generation of machines) are here to stay.  With this in mind, it's important that you be the best you can be at using computing devices - whether it's a Windows PC, an Apple Mac, a smartphone, a tablet or even a watch.  That's why educating yourself is so important and we're here to help!
