By 2013 you would think that technology would have made us more productive than before. The internet, though, is a new tool (historically speaking, that is), and studies have shown a wide learning gap exists before humans can fully incorporate technological advances. While digital cameras, for example, now give you the ability to take and store unlimited photos, we haven’t caught up to the technology of creating a streamlined way to store those files. And let’s not even talking about internet connectivity issues – don’t you hate it when you wind up in a dead spot and your emails and Facebook messages stop coming in? Or, maybe you’ve been on an exotic vacation only to get slowed down by a bad Wi-Fi connection.
Well, congratulations! Your troubles aren’t really problems but rather “First World Problems.” The next time you feel like complaining about how many Facebook notifications you have, just remember that some countries don’t even allow their citizens on Facebook.
