The effect that electronics has had on our lives is amazing. We are extremely dependent on our electronic devices e.g. mobile phones, computers and cars. In today’s society we can’t live without these devices and they keep on getting more and more accessible.
Most of this is to do with the amount it costs to produce and the price that they sell for, Here is a table showing the difference of price and specification of a car and a computer in the past and the present.
In a summary of this table a car has got 3 times better in 100 years and in just 50 years electronics has got better by just a factor a billon so I wonder what’s in store for the next 50 years
How has electronics helped jobs?
The electronics have led to computers and telephones which in turn have led to more jobs being created. This in turn leads to a thriving British economy and a happy general public. Electronics also makes it easy to do these jobs so instead of old methods like telegram and fax you can use email or text using your computer or mobile phone.
How has electronics improved in size and performance?
5110 Size Motorola L6
Weight: 170 g Weight: 86g
Dimensions: 132 x 47.5 x 31 mm Dimensions: 113 x 49 10.9mm
As you can see there is a huge weight, dimension and style difference this is because of the huge advances in the engineering of the devices. The price of a mobile phone has dropped dramatically in the past five years they used to about ï¿½150 now you can get one for about ï¿½20 to ï¿½30. The reason why they used to be so expensive is because it was seen as a sign of wealth now mobile phones are so common that 90% of the countries population own one.
My conclusion is that we could not live without modern day technology which most of is electronic. For example if you had no car and you were walking somewhere and it started to rain you would get wet but now we drive everywhere and you just turn on your window wipers. All of this is because of electronics so try and imagine a life without electronics. Every where you go you either see or hear electronics e.g. mobile phones ringing, a television on and even people talking about electronics.
