The Technological Revolution has vastly changed the way we do things. Life moves at a faster pace, and who’s complaining?

Those engaging in international business used to have to fly to all different countries for meetings. Video calling capabilities have greatly facilitated the practice of international business and minimized the need for actual travel. With the vast amount of gains technology brings, we are also exposed to security breaches, hackers, and numerous complications that didn’t exist prior to the internet.

As the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus have recently been released, the new Apple Pay is the feature that is drawing in many Apple enthusiasts to upgrade. The days of checkbooks and cash aren’t that long ago, yet now the idea of using a check is almost unheard of. Apple Pay allows users to simply tap their phones and pay after fingerprint verification. The encrypted number used to make the transaction protects card information from any security breach a store or retailer may encounter.

This infographic released by Great Call goes through just a few of life’s everyday tasks that have been significantly eased by the incredible smartphone. When was the last time you actually had to take out a paper map and figure out your own directions? While many are skeptical of technology, I think that everyone can agree that there are so many hassles that we are glad to live without.
