PDA’s have definitely been around for a while now. More people are coming to the conclusion that they are more convenient to use for more of the tasks that people do everyday. Some people however disagree with PDA’s because they feel it tends to make our minds lazy. No longer do we have to walk to a shelf and get a dictionary, flip through its pages and find a word, to read the definition. Instead we can put the word in a search area and have the definition within seconds. And there are other tasks just like this that we no longer have to do.
In a way, I suppose they have good cause to feel this way, however technology is moving faster everyday, and in most cases PDA’s are extremely useful. Since PDA’s were first introduced into society and the computer world, they have evolved and revolutionized the lives of those who carry the PDA’s. The newest PDA’s have capabilities that no one ever dreamed would be possible. Making transactions on the Internet, reading emails, creating word documents and spreadsheets, their capabilities are virtually endless. Some are even cell phones as well.
This being said, the PDA has proven to be a worthy asset to the technology world as well as the computer world. It also enhances many of the tasks for everyday people as well as professionals such as doctors, lawyers, police officers, and teachers. The PDA or professional digital assistant was a good idea to whoever came up with the original plan. I am almost positive PDA’s will continue to improve and be revised just like any other product, however the purpose and concept will initially be the same.
PDA’s are a part of today’s world and they will be a part of the future. People need to learn that technology is what this world is based on today. Those who are in disagreement about PDA’s and their usage, are usually the people who don’t understand them. This is the same way as the computer or digital camera. The biggest thing to consider is this; do we stay in yesterday, or enjoy the improvements for a better tomorrow? Our children and grandchildren will have an advantage if you really take the time to consider the facts.
The PDA is a useful tool in many areas of a person’s life, and it is a tool that can be used for many things. It doesn’t matter what type of PDA a person really has, as long as it serves the purpose or fulfills the needs of the individual.
The PDA is definitely doing to be in our future in some way or another. It is not just simply going to go away. It serves to many purposes for those in the business world and those individuals who like to keep track of their daily routine and tasks that they have to do. The idea of being able to keep track of birthdays and anniversaries alone without the means of having to write it down in a book or a calendar somewhere makes it an important asset to a lot of people.
