Do We Need to Be Techy?

Look, I love tech. Always have. I love being on the bleeding edge of things (hence running the new iOS 17 betas on all my devices) and seeing "what's next", but for a lot of people technology these days just gets in the way.

Elevating your ‘Tech’ savviness
Being a techie is more than just a hobby; it is a mindset driven by unwavering dedication.

Look, I love tech. Always have. I love being on the bleeding edge of things (hence running the new iOS 17 betas on all my devices) and seeing "what's next", but for a lot of people technology these days just gets in the way. There are plenty of situations where it's simpler to just pick up a pen and paper to do what we want, rather than trying to interface through a screen. The best example of this was several years ago when my finacée and I needed to do a table/seating plan. We tried a few tools but ultimately, pen and paper (and a bit of cutting out) was what was by far the easiest solution.

Even at work, having to get POD from customers is a pain. We use an app on a phone that is slow, clunky and frequently crashes. Customers struggle to sign properly, often saying "It looks nothing like my signature" before chuckling. When we used pen and paper, the worst thing that happened was the paper would sometimes get dirty or torn.

Sometimes I think it would be nice to leave this technology-centred world to go live in the woods and live a simpler, less curious life.

The Apple Vision Pro sure does look nice though...
