Advantages of modern technology
The arrival of modern information technology
has opened up new worlds for most. Since the 80's the digital age has progressed with fervour, expanding our communication systems and introducing updates and devices that enhance our online lives.
The digital era has almost taken over most aspects of modern day civilisation and there's not many people left on the planet who don't have access to the internet or a smart phone. In some ways, the explosion of technological brilliance
is not all it's cracked up to be because it's forever adapting to suit lifestyle choices. Today, we rarely send traditional letters and some would question our chosen methods of communication via social media as it does not involve face-to-face encounters. Nonetheless our PC's, laptops and tablets
enable us to access information at the touch of a button, making busy schedules manageable through the use of apps, speedy broadband connections and instant shopping.
Death of the VHS
While the digital dream continues to deliver new and innovative ways to shapen our daily lives, there are some draw backs. Most of us, whether young or old are in possession of VHS tapes
that may contain video footage that is rare, personal and of sentimental value.
Long before CD's and DVD's came into production, the VHS tape reigned supreme and there are literally millions of them lying about in garden sheds and cob-webbed attics, condemned to spend the rest of their days gathering dust. The old VHS tapes are often made up of family gatherings like weddings.
Celebratory occasions like 21st birthday parties, childhood holiday moments, and other special events are precious and worthy of restoration and preservation as they can be passed on from generation to generation. Many have discarded these tapes already, because up until now, there was no way to convert them digitally
. If you haven't done that, you'll be glad to know you can convert them now.
