The internet is a phenomenon that has taken the world by storm, but just how much do we rely on it throughout daily life? A resource, that was once seen as desirable, that not every family or household had access to, is now an absolute necessity, that people simply could not live without.

Within today’s interconnected world, businesses will see the use of the internet in most, if not all businesses for a variety of functions, and with the providers such as Talk Talk Business, it has never been easier to stay connected.


With the use of broadband facilities, many households and businesses will own and use a variety of laptops. The laptop has aided the introduction of flexible working hours and the ability to work from home that most businesses have introduced to their workforce. It allows employees to effectively continue their working role away from their desks.



Gone are the days when mobile phones were used for merely calling up contacts, maybe a text message here and there. Today, the mobile phone has transformed the way people live their lives, most will not leave the house without it, and will have it glued to their hands in almost all situations. Emails, social media, messaging apps, satellite navigation, calendars,  banking apps, and payment facilities are just a few of the many functions that each smartphone will offer its user. Quite literally the world at your fingertips.


One of the newest additions to technology, also known as wearable technology, is the smartwatch, used in a similar fashion to the smartphone, smart watches offer much more than just the time. A popular addition to the health and lifestyle industry, keeping fit and healthy has never been easier, with brands creating smartwatches for the health conscious allowing users to keep track of their exercise throughout the day encouraging them to set goals that they can monitor throughout the day until completion.
