My husband adores technology, well if I am honest we all do in our house.
We have Philips Hue Lights that are controlled with our smart phones, a Smart TV, Amazon Alexa’s or Dots in most rooms and of course our PC’s etc.
This week, however, we encountered a problem. We have Virgin Media and they decided to upgrade our local servers, so we have had a couple of days outage for both TV and Wifi.
As a blogger I work online and they typically chose my one day off of the week, which is where I write and schedule all my posts. I tried tethering from my phone, but it really bumps up the data usage, particularly if you try and upload photo’s.
I can live without TV, as long as I have a radio. However, we got rid of our ancient CD player a few years ago and rely on Alexa for our music. No wifi = no Alexa, or no digital TV. We don’t even have an aerial on the house as reception is so poor at where we live that we never bothered to replace it.
It has really made me think about how much we rely on technology in this day and age and what might happen if things go wrong. I have already dug my digital radio out of the back of a cupboard, just in case.
So, technology is great but when it isn’t available it is a real pain in the backside.
Do you rely on technology in your day to day life?
